“The guest asked the housekeeper to clean a collection of sex toys.”
If only the biggest problem with guests was a little spilled tea… Some guests can be absolutely revolting.
One of the worst stories I ever heard was from a hotel housekeeper who was perturbed when she found an array of unusually large sex toys on the bathroom sink alongside a polite note from the lone male guest who asked her: please wash my toys!
What are these nightmare guests thinking?
Once I stayed at a posh heritage hotel and noticed something unusual on the overhead smoke detector in my guest room, so I called for help.
This led to a very red-faced hotel manager removing a condom that had been fixed to the smoke detector device on the ceiling, and he sheepishly offered that a guest had done this to prevent the detector from going off.
My first thought: I hope the condom was unused.
My second: What if he suspects that I am the condom culprit!
