Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

I had to stay in a hotel last night. This morning as I was packing up I saw all the mini shampoos and conditioners which I hadn't used because of course they are shit and I thought of this thread. I stuffed them into my bag.

I've been known to hide a jar of Nutella from the kids, so please don't ask me how quickly I can get through a box of cookies or a can of Pringles.

On QI they said that if you put a Siamese cat in the fridge it will turn black, because apparently its fur is hypercolor.

I remember as a kid, I saw a diagram showing some "scientist" putting a block of ice on an Arctic hare (during the summer when it's mostly brown). After a period of time, the ice was taken off, showing all white fur where the ice was in contact.

^I read that this happens because these animals have a type of pigment in their fur that is inactive at warm temperatures, which is why siamese cats' extremities are dark and their cores are white. So interesting! Sounds opposite with the hare, though.

Whenever I use a public bathroom, I rip like the first foot of toilet paper off and throw it on the ground before ripping off the stuff I'm actually going to wipe my ass with.
I use the anti-splash method, where the first foot or two of paper goes in the bowl before you sit down

^I don't even sit. Public bathrooms are nasty, and the stalls are always so small that no matter how hard I try I always end up touching something. If I believed in hell I think it would be being morbidly obese in a honeybucket.

That sounds like a threadbomb.

That's actually not that bad. They're put them there expecting them to be used, so if you haven't and they haven't been used, I don't see a problem with taking them. Which was done at my last hotel stay as well...

Meh, I have a bag of such things from all over the world. They expect those to be taken.

Want more? Every day, move the bottles from the sink to somewhere else in the room, maybe inside the shower. Many hotels will replace them on the sink every day even if the others aren't empty, if they don't look untouched.

I steal all the wrapped soaps and bottles from the hotel to put in the motorhome.
