Who here straightens up their room before checkout?
Am I the only one who straightens up their room before checkout? I'm not talking an Alice from the Brady Bunch cleaning (wiping counters, making beds, etc.), I'm talking putting towels in one place (the tub for me), putting trash in the can, putting the remote in front of the tv, stacking newspapers somewhere, etc.
The thing Is, I'm a semi-slob at home. However, I find myself straightening up when in a hotel. If I did this at home, my wife would probably wonder what the hell is going on. Am I nuts?
I don't straighten up, but I do similar activities to make sure I don't leave anything behind.
- Towels are shaken over the tub to make sure no renegade clothing items are tangled inside.
- Look under the top sheet and duvet, again looking for items (I have realized that my ipod was still in the bed once)I then pull up the sheet.
-I look through the pile of receipts/papers for anything important and ditch the stuff I don't need.
-Newspaper. I don't read the hard copy. I generally just pick up the paper at the door on my way out and drop it on the hallway table next to the elevator.

Yes, my mom taught me not to live in a pigsty! I think it's funny sometimes when I walk down hall and happen to glance in rooms the maids are cleaning and I wonder who in the world would leave a mess like that in their room. Like others I won't even consider making the bed but I do make sure my mess is picked up and most things are in a certain place.
I do too. I thought I was the only one. I fold towels and pile them up on the counter (imagine having to bend over all day long). Put most trash in one bin. Wipe down the counter. And put remote control away.
