If you think too hard about the concept of a hotel, you might never stay in one. You’re trusting low-paid strangers to clean the sheets, the carpets, the towels, the bathrooms….I mean, I pretty much expect to come down with something every time I return from out of town.

I just hope that it’s something relatively harmless, and count myself lucky.

Sadly, these 15 people’s stories are only proving my fears to be reality.

15. I never thought to check inside the coffeemaker, but I will now.

6. Seems legit.

Nothing screams quality hotel room like a hole in the ceiling with a napkin jammed in it.

5. You mean this electric tea kettle that came with the room?

My Hotel offers a kettle and glasses to use – but has a folder in a drawer with rules. One of them says you have to pay a fine if you use the kettle.

4. I feel like someone should have noticed before this got quite so far.

This is what I saw when I checked into my hotel last night.

3. Is it wrong that I thought “wow, good idea!”?

2. Someone had to do that on purpose, right?

1. Everyone’s a comedian.

Both spelling and the actual password for the WiFi at a hotel where a friend is staying

Airbnb is the way to go, people! I can at least convince myself that’s true.

Do you trust hotels? Do you always stay in expensive ones, or do you just count on your immune system to back you up?
