It's okay, you can admit it. We've all pocketed the toiletries from the bathroom in hotel rooms. Really, it's all right. The little shampoo bottles travel awfully well, after all, and
sometimes most times the shampoo is better than the slop we put in our hair at home.
This sort of "theft" has come to be accepted by hotels worldwide, from soap to shampoo. Hell, sometimes we've even taken the mouthwash and Q-tips (we've yet to come across anyone over 60 who swipes the shower cap, though). While we wouldn't think of touching the towels or the linens or the lamps, we know some of you out there have some explaining to do.
Yes, some of you have stolen the lamps out of hotel rooms, and we know all about it.
Well, we can't say we're that surprised. According to data released yesterday, none other but Las Vegas ranked number one as the city with the most hotel bedbug complaints. Guess all those extra hotel rooms proved too enticing for the little blood-suckers.
The report contains a quote from Philip Vaughn, CEO of Raveable.com (the travel website that completed the study), who says this has been "a groundbreaking year for bedbugs." And how. We'd only just finished telling you about The Park Central's Union Rat woes yesterday, and now this happens. Aren't you curious to see which other cities made the cut? More creepy-crawly cities after the jump.
