@GeorgePapi; A person that hasn’t applied knowledge cannot teach you how to apply it. Most lecturers/teachers in Nigeria haven’t applied the knowledge they have read in books to real life situations so it’s almost impossible to teach its applications.
@SquareC36389923; You slept off on duty, that’s very bad of you. The Hotel was even kind to you, firing you on the spot is what 95% of other well managed hotels would have done.
