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."

People really do live it up with the towels don't they? It's towelpalooza!

"You cover the entire bathroom floor with towels. It's great."

"shhhhh"

"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.

There are just some things in life that are not necessary knowledge.

Maybe we always hold out that tiny bit of hope we will one day be on Jeopardy... because you never know.

It's the creepy facts about life that leave me wondering and reeling.

RedditorsPanzer_ace_8wanted to compare notes on the things we're aware of that maybe we wish we could forget. They asked:

"What’s a disturbing fact you know?"

Hitchhikers Describe The Most Memorable Ride A Stranger Has Ever Given Them

Hitchhiking. It has to be one of the most dangerous things a person can do.

There are too many movies where a hitchhiker falls victim to some psycho, and they're shocked it's happening.

Like... Hello?!?! You got into some stranger's car. How could you not get killed?

Also, all throughout childhood years we tell kids to NEVER get into a stranger's car.

But once we're 18 that rule seems to no longer apply.

I feel like it should be MORE prescient in adulthood.

But I'm sure all the survivors have quite the tale to share.

RedditorWestTexasOilmanwanted all of the road travelers to share some memories about past rides. They asked:

"Current or Former Hitchhikers of Reddit; What person that stopped or gave you a ride was the most memorable? Why?"

Americans Break Down The Things They Appreciate Most About The U.S.

Let's put this up front: the United States of America is not the greatest country in the world.

It's just a fact. We're not tops in the world in education, our maternity leave for new mothers pales in comparison to most European countries, which is to say nothing of our healthcare as a whole, and our average income per household?

8th. Last we checked, that's not 1st.

It's not all doom and gloom though. There are still a lot of things to love about the good ol' U. S. of A. And if you love something, you fight for it, to make it better, and truly try to achieve the ranking of "best."
