Pranksters Reveal The Items They Would Leave In Their Hotel Room To Baffle The Staff

Pranksters Reveal The Items They Would Leave In Their Hotel Room To Baffle The Staff

[rebelmouse-image 18358840 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Working in a hotel, most clerks and housekeepers have probably seen it all. To shock them, you'd have to come up with something pretty creative.

Reddit user TheRedditLifeChoseMe asked "What items would you leave in a hotel room if your goal was to totally confuse the staff?"

Here are the amusing responses.

Chicken of the Sea

[rebelmouse-image 18358841 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Two half eaten cans of tuna and hand written instructions on making tuna fish sandwiches.

Nicolas Kim Coppola

[rebelmouse-image 18358842 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A 3D printed sculpture of Nicolas Cage's head in the middle of the room.

White Powder

A bag of flour with drugs written on it.

It's Complicated

[rebelmouse-image 18358843 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A pogostick mounted upside down on the ceiling. Underneath it is an empty bucket of mayonnaise. Around the bucket will be rose petals and a thank you card that reads:

"You were the best I've ever had."

The bathroom will of course be locked from the inside and a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door knob. All of this will be after I climb out the window having never checked out.

I would essentially have disappeared to the best of my ability. One year later, I will send my twin brother (yep, there's really a spare me just lying around) to the hotel to meet me. I would have to keep him and the police investigation separate until then.

When he arrives, he'll ask hotel staff if they've seen me. Of course the police will be curious why I'm apparently asking after myself. During the interrogation, a UPS package will arrive containing a HeHateMe jersey and the very last Pepsi Blue in existence. A letter inside the package will explain that I had discovered a wormhole inside the mayonnaise bucket and they needed the Pepsi Blue and HeHateMe jersey to perform the ritual to bring me back, which is detailed in the UPS package.

When they perform the ritual, I will jump naked from the trash bin in the hotel lobby, where I have been living the entire past year.

I think this will sufficiently confuse everyone involved.

Dust to Dust

[rebelmouse-image 18358845 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would lay my clothes and shoes out on the floor in the shape they would be if I were wearing them.

Then, I would get a bunch of sand and use it to make it seem like I turned into dust and that was all that was left of me.

Two Bits

[rebelmouse-image 18358847 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A quarter super-glued to the floor.

John Deere

[rebelmouse-image 18358848 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A lawnmower.

Imagine it. You work as housekeeping at a hotel. Your manager notifies you that room 204 has checked out, and to go clean it. Basic stuff. You open the door and there in the middle of the room is a lawnmower. Why is it there? How did they get it there without anybody noticing? What the hell are you supposed to do with it? Should you alert management? Should they call the guest to tell them they left their lawnmower in their room? It's a common item, but one that has no place in a hotel room in any fathomable situation. You can't tell me the staff won't be scratching their heads over that.

Room Swap

[rebelmouse-image 18358849 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Strip out the room and redo it in the style and furniture of another hotel chain, including leaving one of their room keys on the table.

Did Not Disturb

[rebelmouse-image 18358850 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My wife worked for hotels. She said once a guy stayed in a hotel for a week. Was there every night and never touched anything. Not the soap, the cups, bed... everything was as it was placed by housekeeping when he left.

Hot Tomato

[rebelmouse-image 18358851 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A single ripe tomato sitting on a pillow in the middle of the bathtub.

There's just no logical way to rationalize this out of context.

Remote Possibilities

[rebelmouse-image 18358852 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A remote control for a TV they don't have.

Elder Scrolls

[rebelmouse-image 18358853 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Hand written and bound copy of the Lusty Argonian Maid.

The Classics Work Best

[rebelmouse-image 18358855 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Just the usual chalk outline of a corpse.

Toyland

[rebelmouse-image 18346002 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I actually used to work in housekeeping. There was this one duffel bag that was left under one of the beds by a guest. The bag was black, with Mickey Mouse's face on it. The inside, was stuffed completely full of every type of adult toy you could imagine. Not overly confusing, but hilarious.

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

[rebelmouse-image 18357594 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A single peeled banana, left in the exact middle of the bed, with the peel nowhere in sight.

Unflappable

[rebelmouse-image 18358856 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

At an anime con once, I brought a body pillow featuring a mostly nude drawing of a video game man. The housekeeper tucked him comfortably into bed. I'm not sure there's anything you CAN do to confuse them.

Snacks

[rebelmouse-image 18358857 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A small cooler, labeled "Human organs for transplant."

Leave it on the table with a dirty plate and silverware.

Final Resting Place

[rebelmouse-image 18358858 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

An urn filled with ashes (real or fake) left on the nightstand with a note that said that this was my fathers favorite room and it was his last wish to have his ashes in the room forever.

Photo Finish

[rebelmouse-image 18358860 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Hang a picture of one of the staff workers on the wall, framed and everything.

People Break Down The One Activity They'll Never Try Again

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:
