Staying lots of places that aren’t your permanent home always ensures you find all kinds of crazy things that aren’t yours, and never will be. I’ve made it a habit now to pull back the covers completely from every room I am in to check for suspicious items that the hotel staff needs to remove. Besides the normal underwear/socks/random pieces of clothing that we’ve discovered, I’ve also learned to check the bedside drawers for treasures.
I’ve found playing cards, cuff links, and even some supplements. (Of course I didn’t take them, I just was curious as to what they were!) The bottle said Venapro, and it was something I had never heard of before. After scouring the internet for Venapro reviews, I determined that Venapro was some kind of homeopathic supplement to help treat hemorrhoids. I’m sure someone, somewhere is really missing this stuff!
I don’t understand how people can leave behind so much stuff. I don’t know if this fact should weird me out more, or the fact that the hotel cleaning staff seems to miss such obvious things. How am I supposed to believe my sheets are actually clean if they can’t find the out of place objects right under their noses?
The germaphobe in me is highly tempted to travel with a self contained sleeping unit that I know exactly where it has been and who has used it. (Just me, of course!) But with all the traveling and shuffling around we do, I’ve learned to be able to block this weirdness from my brain, and somehow still manage to sleep between hotel sheets every night peacefully. And so far, I haven’t contracted anything strange as a result! It’s a miracle! Ha!
While it’s not often that you go rummaging through leftovers in hotels to discover the best cream for hemorrhoids, sometimes you strike gold, right? HA! Just keeping it weird, guys. Happy traveling! (Don’t forget to check under the covers next time before you dive right in!)
