I love staying in hotels.

There is such a freedom to act in any foolish way you want.

We shouldn't. Just because we're in a hotel the rules of basic human decency still apply.

But we tend to ignore that fact.

No wonder hotel rooms are so expensive.

Redditor HarryHolmes68wanted to hear some confessions about our behvior when not at home. They asked:

"What something you do in a hotel room you’d never do at home?"

As soon as I enter a hotel room, I put the air on basically 0. I have no electric bill there and I like it freezing.

"Inspect the sheets thoroughly."

"Last time I was in a hotel, I didn’t do this and by the time I got into bed at midnight I started freaking out because thought I felt bugs crawling on me."

"Turned on the light, inspected the sheets. Nope. Pubic hairs and crumbs. Too tired to find a new hotel, I went downstairs and asked for a clean set of sheets, remade the bed, and slept like crap. Was gonna shower but the bathroom made me feel like I’d end up dirtier. I still don’t like ya Indiana."

"Use that white hand towel as a bath mat."

"I make a trail of towels from the door to the shower if I'm anywhere near a beach. I don't like tracking sand everywhere. Also the carpet is filthy."

jeeremyclarkson

"Usually there’s a towel on the side of the tub or on a towel rack, specifically meant to be laid down as a shower rug. Even at the cheap hotels. I traveled for work, and wasn’t given much for hotels. So I had to stretch them Pennies."

Plan Ahead

"Eat pizza in bed naked while watching cable tv."

"TIPS: when traveling solo, always pick a room with two beds. That way you have an eating bed and a sleeping bed. It’s the closest we’ll get to royalty, folks."

"Your tip is also valid when traveling with a sexual partner. One bed for clean activities, one bed for dirty activities."

"Tolerate a bunch of loud strangers galloping down the halls at 3 am."

"God forbid there's a hockey tournament. The parents let their kids set up mini sticks and nets and play in the hallways. It's really nice when you're working nights. Hockey parents can go to hell."

"It's me, the loud stranger. Had someone open their door once and do the loudest 'shhhhh' whisper I've ever heard in my life."

"I don't typically steal my own soap."

SteveMcQueef81

"I have a travel kit that has like a dozen different soaps and mini shampoos in it from hotels over the past decade. I never actually use them because every time I go somewhere they have stuff there, which I also steal."

madogvelkor

"The cost of the soaps are included in your rate. So technically when you check out, you're paying for them."

Sounds like we all love hotels. We certainly live it up.

People Break Down Which Things Everyone Needs To Hear But No One Has The Guts To Say
Busy_Quail1725/Reddit

There is nothing more frustrating than the things we cannot say, but desperately want to.

Sometimes, we might find ourselves in situations where we are positively desperate to speak up, but for whatever reason can't.

Even though we know deep down, that people will be better off, or things might run more smoothly if we said something.

Redditor MCKlassik was curious to hear the things that people would benefit from hearing, but will likely never be told, leading them to ask:

"What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people?"

People Explain Which Movies Were So Brutal They Had To Stop Watching Them

Before we get started, let's just say that everyone's tolerance levels are different. What might be an okay watch for your might be the worst experience ever for someone else. Our tastes are different and that's what makes film brilliant. We can share our thoughts, our feelings, and our experience with one another and see a work of art through someone else's eyes.

Films can be challenging in what they're trying to say, and if that challenge is too much to answer, don't feel bad for having to turn something off.

Being a law-abiding citizen shouldn't be that difficult.

As long as people obey the rules, maintain their morals, and avoid making extremely bad decisions, they will never see the walls inside a prison cell.

People Break Down Which Things Feel Like Torture But Aren't

I know we're a culture full of over the top whiners.

We love to go on and on about all the things that bother us.

And all of the life impediments that stand in the way of our happiness.

But we need to dial it down a notch.

There is a difference between actual bodily harm and an inconvenience.

Redditorseesnawsnappywanted to mull over what aspects of life make us feel like actual pain but maybe we're exaggerating. They asked:

"What isn't torture but feels like it?"
