  • Turkish hotel fires all male staff - for having affairs with guests

    A Turkish hotel has fired all of its male staff for slacking on the job – by having repeated affairs with female holidaymakers.

    Image Hotel in Marmaris, a popular British holiday destination on Turkey’s south-west coast, now has only four female workers.

    Pelin Yucel, who has managed the hotel for the past eight years, said the final straw came when she saw one of her bartenders emerging from a toilet with a British woman.

    ‘We had been facing the same problem every year but after the last incident we decided to run the hotel by only female staff,’ she said.

    ‘Even though it’s against the rules, we have been unable to stop our male personnel from having relationships with our customers for years.

    ‘In the past five years, I have caught numerous male employees spending time with female tourists instead of doing their jobs at different hours of the day, including midnight and the early morning hours.’

    And it seems Yucel is happy with her decision. Without its philandering male staff, the female employees are doing a good job of keeping the hotel in order, working on everything from night watch duty and repairs to catering and cleaning.
