What have you left behind in a hotel?
Opposite thing really, but when on honeymoon in Sri Lanka last year, we were about an hour down the road from the hotel we had overnighted at (we did a 6 day tour) and the guide’s mobile phone rang.Posted 4 years ago
Did I still have the (presumably only) room key on me still, as they couldn’t find it. Cue huge embarassment as i pulled a key from my pocket with a fob on it about the size of a large block of post-it notes. How I had failed to give it in, I don’t know!
In my defence they didn’t ask for it….ahem.
Luckily the guide new a shop on the main road that were happy to look after the key until one of the staff could come and collect it. I felt very guilty!!skidsareforkidsMember
Two things… White shirt (presumably left tangled in the white sheets), and more recently my wife left a 9mm in the room safe of a Texas Hilton. A frantic drive back and the staff were happy to let us go get it. Being Texas, it probably happens all the time :/Posted 4 years agotinybitsMember
Totally different subject bikebouy, if you’ve did any RS200 events 3+ years ago (children have out it on pause a bit) there’s a very good chance we’ve had a beer together…! I’m often drinking with Pete (Uggs) and MrsBits occasionally crews for him when she’s sick of me making her swim!Posted 4 years agotinybitsMember
Yep, def would have done then as done several events at HISC including series, nationals and anniversary regatta 200832 was mine, but often seen in anything with anyone I could, as long as they didn’t mind being at the back of the fleet!!Posted 4 years ago
Looking to get an 800 with a mate who sails IC’s and Int 14’s in the hope we can have a bit of fun together until kids are old enough to sail.samuriMember
Left some credit cards and expensive train tickets. I’d taken them ut of my wallet when I went out on the town, forgot to put them back in. They posted the credit cards back to me but I had to re-buy the train tickets 🙁
I’ve *found* a lethal smelling lump of cannabis. About a quarter. This was long after I’d stopped smoking it so I alerted the hotel staff.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
My Dinner Jacket – Some friends who were passing a week later collected it
Opinel Number 12 – though not quite as I spotted it above reception while checking out. I had just come back from the alps to a big mountaineering party and needed something to cut up cheese at 2am…(I also think it was with the guys from Alpkit)
A guy I worked with found porn mags in one room, he checked in every room for a long time after that.Posted 4 years agosodadrMember
+1 my dignity
Although strictly speaking, I lost it just outside a hotel room, having got up in the night for a wee, gone through the door into the hallway instead of the door into the bathroom, and realised just as the door closed behind me. Thus making me do the walk of shame down to the reception, in just a pair of pants.
I awoke once at about 10.30pm urinating into a bin in the hallway of my hotel in Denver after a long afternoon on the booze. Wearing just my boxers, and without my glasses. I had to myopically stagger into a lift and down to reception, which of course was bustling with other very amused hotel guests.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber

5am, reception of a 5* hotel in Athens. I enter in my boxers bouncing on my arse down the marble spiral staircase to explain my key card wasn’t working. (I had just come from the swimming pool)Posted 4 years agotomhowardSubscriber
After a shower I used to leave notes written in the condensation on the bathroom mirror like “help me” and “don’t look under the bed”
They were invisible until the shower was running and steamed it back up ready for the next occupant
Outstanding! Definitely going to be doing this next time!Posted 4 years ago
