Wonderful discussion on the ABC Breakfast Show with some very funny talkback callers confessing to all sorts of things that have just ended up in their bags.
Do we leave our values and compliance with rules at home when we check in to a hotel? As the hotel card is pushed down to activate the lights do you scan for what you can put in your bags? Pens? Notepads? Body Lotion? Do Not Disturb Sign? Lamps? Batteries from the tv remote?
I’m a pen guy. Love them.
Above: My favourite hotel pen from The Palace of the Lost City in Sun City, South Africa. If you’re reading this Sun City it was my daughter Matilda who put the pen in my bag.
My son Tom is still worried the Narrogin Police are chasing after him for taking the complimentary biscuits in the room at the Narrogin Albert Facey Motel.
The Top 10 items taken from hotel rooms:
- Pens and notepads
- Do Not Disturb signs
- Shower Gel, body lotion, shampoo
- Box of tissues
Things you will likely be charged for include:
- Robes and linen
- Emergency torch
- Hair dryers
- Art work
- Wheels on the bottom of the bed
Pocket a pen, squirrel away the toiletries and maybe take a few tissues if you need them but try and leave everything else for the next guest.
You’ve paid for the room, you haven’t paid for its contents.
