TIFU by giving an homeless girl my room at an hotel

Over the weekend I was staying at a popular UK chain hotel and thought I was going to be there until Sunday night. Well 1pm comes and I get back to the hotel early from having lunch and it turns out that they have a strict checkout time of 12pm to get your money back and I don’t really want to stay there all day by myself miles away just for the sake of it.

Over in the corner of the hotel lobby was a little lounge area with a sofa and some armchairs. There was a girl who must not have been much older than 18 or so asleep on the sofa and you could tell from her appearance that she was sleeping rough and had come inside out of the rain. The hotel reception staff walked over to her and were asking her to leave, which I understand, but I felt horrible for her. I followed her out into the car park and offered her my room key if she promised not to trash the room and as long as she checked out on time. She agreed and so I went on my way not really thinking much about it other than how she wouldn’t have to sleep outside in the rain.

I spoke to my brother later on and he informed me that if something bad happened to her in the room then it would be on me, so I was panicked all last night. I tried calling the hotel to tell them of the situation but couldn’t get through. Well they called me this morning and it turns out that she didn’t only trash the room, but that she also urinated in the hallway, tried to smash the vending machine and was in general a disturbance to other guests. The hotel informed me that I’d have to pay for any damage and the reception lady gave me a very stern lecture about why they don’t just give people rooms when they show up like that. Lesson learned, but at least an 18 year old girl didn’t have to sleep outside in the rain and be open to any number of dangerous situations for a night I suppose.

TL;DR I was checking out of an hotel early and there was an homeless girl sleeping in the lobby. She was being moved on so I gave her my room key and let her have the room. She trashed it and now I have to pay for damages.

Edit: thank you so much for the awards guys! I’ve never had a big post on Reddit before so it’s hard to keep up, but I appreciate it!
