So much is changing … is the platform maturing and peaking? What used to be a fun, hip and daring thing to do… stay with real people in exotic places!! Or host —and make a little pocket change the fun and easy way!!! Has become rather like drudgery and more tedious in recent years.
Hosts are paranoid and OCD like never before. Burnout is a thing. We break our necks to be perfect for guests and they crack us anyway about some little thing we didn’t even think of. Reviews have sucked the life out of some of us, and just make us want to quit in Totality.
Guests have become entitled and demanding. They want the 4 Seasons at half the Motel 6 price. They are the demand-a-refund-for-sneeze generation.
I just had a guest walk off the property, claim they had allergies and want their money back. Sigh.
Since when did the damn fun go right out of it?
