It’s so hard to find good help.

I used to dump my travel bag (deodorant, contact holder, contact solution, glasses, etc.) out on the bathroom counters when I traveled. Some maid/housekeeper took all of my stuff and arranged it neatly on a washcloth a couple years ago. Since then, I have been doing the same thing. AND so I don’t loose any receipts (I have to turn them all in when I get back to work) I put them in a pile on a table someplace in the room.

I head out this morning at 7:45, it’s a 3 mile drive to the conference center. When I got back, my wash cloth was jammed up against the wall. All of my stuff was helter-skelter on the counter and the wash cloth was all wrinkled. The pile of receipts was gone!! Oh My God!!! I fucking freaked!!! Found them smashed behind the napkin holder… WTF!! You know, I thought there were some things in a hotel room the ‘help’ wasn’t suppose to touch.

I’ll fix them, I’m gonna dirty dishes, use all of the towels for the next two days and not let them in to clean the room between days!! That’ll show’em!!

That's kind of crazy, but good thing you did find them.

That would have sucked so bad, had the maid tossed your receipts! They probably would have heard me screaming from the next state.

Sounds like your maid was rushed and didn't get to complete her job. If it happens again you should call the front desk and complain. And the maids are not to throw anything away except for the contents of the trashcans. Hope the rest of your trip is nice.

You show them! Don't let them clean your room for a few days. And just what are you gonna do with all them pizza boxes?

Be careful, you don't want to go to sleep in a bed filled with ground glass... :)
