The perfect hotel room plays a deal maker or breaker during our vacations. While we all love the coziness of the hotels rooms, the crisp, comfy sheets from the lovely foreign land and oh who can forget our very own oompa-loompa who come in and clean our messy-as-a-crow’s-nest rooms with their magic. We just want to live them forever.
However, those oompa-Loompas didn’t always have a pleasant experience. Not only was the cleaning a bummer and launder was tedious, to top it all off they had to face things tourists leave in their wake. Now one usually a traveller might leave ordinary things like cell phones, chargers, toothbrushes, clothes or some other things as such. So what exactly is special about this list? Well if you want to know, you gotta check it out.
1. WHY I LOVE SALAD
This interesting case comes from the owner of a bed and breakfast. Given the person has been at this job for the past eight years, by self-admission, this is the craziest thing he had witnessed a visitor leaving in their wake. Apparently he found an old battered notebook titled “why I love salad” enumerating, on a DOZEN pages why the author found that salad was amazing. Seems as though salads aren’t that simple anymore.
Another interesting tale includes a whole bunch of cats all over the room! And apparently they came from a very generous guest. The guest, besides the cats, left a 100$ tip/bribe to take good care of her cats while she says. Also, good-naturedly she left a note that said, ‘Thanks for taking care of these guys, be back in a week’. Guess what? The staff got stood up! *SHOCKER*
3. QUACK, QUACK, QUACK
With feminism in the full element, even animals don’t like to be discriminated against. Our next story is based on the same principle. Seems like the cat case replicated itself with a slight change. Another worker found ducklings in the bathroom. The guest said the mother duck had died so she started looking after the orphan ducklings herself. The ducklings were kept in someone’s office until the right people came to collect them. Like who’s the ‘right people’ to come and adopt ducklings? And how to become one?
4. RICHIE RICH
Well, people are too generous nowadays. Some might say they are over doing it but obviously not this guy, with the luck of an Irish, who was tipped very open-handedly with over $20,000. The guest checked out with the door wide open. The brown bag was on the table with 20K cash. “Hey, boss I found $15,000 in that room…”
This incident sure was fascinating and perhaps the best.
5. A TRIBUTE TO ABRAHAM LINCOLN
What’s with tourists and animals? Guess the world will never know. In this yet another fascinating case, the worker walked into goat dressed like Abraham Lincoln. The cleaner walked in the room expecting to be greeted with a pile of dirt but instead was greeted with a goat! He never found how it got there or how it got out of there but it made a good story for a while. Well, DUH!
6. WHERE’S THE ROOM?
‘Where’s the room? Oh, it’s on the ceiling. OH GOD! IT IS ON THE CEILING!!!’
Yeah, you read it right. The most bizarre story of the tourist leftover, this story will surely leave you in knots over its authenticity. But crazy things happen every day…
Apparently, a housekeeping staff member walked in the room to find the entire layout of the room, including every article of furniture there, nailed to the ceiling in roughly the same configuration that it had been on the floor. The guests were members of a fairly big name band. Even though they seemed rowdy, there were no noise complaints and they were misunderstood as perfect tenants. Well, surprise, surprise. The worker thought it was cool but the management unfortunately didn’t.
7. HOTEL LUXURY? WHAT’S THAT?
Well, this guy completely missed the introductory passage of this article. The housekeeping was no oompa-loompa to him; instead, he turned around their roles. The guest stayed with the hotel for a full week, never letting housekeeping enter his room. He was regularly supplied with fresh rounds of toiletries- towels and trash bags- but he took them at the door. After he left, the housekeeping dreaded about what they would find, but the room was spotless. He hadn’t touched a thing, and even bleached everything! All the towels were cleaned up- apparently unused- and even the bed was made. Hello? Had this guy heard of the hotel norms?
8. A SET OF BREAST IMPLANTS
Well, don’t we keep throwing surprises your way? What can we say? This American traveler purchased a set of breast implants in the US and traveled to London to have a surgery there. Either she changed her mind or forgot them there, we may never know!
9. A GOLD DENTURE
Well, this man must be very wealthy. Not only does he have (or had) teeth of gold, he did tip well considering he left the denture for the staff! The gold was estimated at 6000 pounds; guess he took all the precious stones. After all, you must spend money to make money, or in his case flowing it like money. Seriously who does that?!
10. *FIND FOR YOURSELF*
For this last point in our list, we summarize other weird things which were unearthed: a 10,000 euro engagement ring, the keys to a Bugatti, a set of Olympic tickets, 200 queen Elizabeth masks and 75,000 teddy bears! Yeah, we have reached the same conclusion. The world is a strange place of even stranger travelers!
