The nationalities that nick the most hotel items

Surprisingly, it wasn't those fancy little toiletries that proved most tempting for sticky-fingered Australians, instead magazines and books were the first to go, the Hotels.com survey found.

Australians weren’t the worst offenders. Travellers from 29 countries took part in the survey, with the French, Canadians, Americans, Chinese and Swedish even more likely to pocket something extra from their hotel stays. The top three nationalities for hotel theft were Indians (38 per cent), Mexicans (40 per cent) and Colombians (57 per cent).

Towels and linens were the items of choice for guests from the US, Sweden, Italy, Hong Kong, Canada, Norway and Ireland, while the Chinese were most likely to steal furnishings including lamps, clocks and artwork.

Other items nicked include bathrobes, pillows, electronics, irons and alarm clocks. ...

Could be. Maybe the Aussies, too. Jer. 8:12 seems written for our time:
“Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush …”

Hotels, like other businesses having to deal with this, will merely pass the cost of pilferage (having to buy more towels etc.) onto their future guests. So travellers are ultimately paying the price.

BTW, another thing the author of "Heads in Beds" noted was, sometimes guests would not cover themselves after he knocked at their door (as Housekeeping Manager) & they let him in. Again, lack of shame.

I thought the toiletries were supposed to be used/ taken - complimentary ?
My thinking: it's OK to take consumables like those tiny soaps or shampoos, since once they're opened by guests as intended, the hotel can't & won't use them again. But it violates the 8th Commandment to take reusable things like towels, linens, or furnishings.

“If he does really think that there is no distinction between virtue & vice, why, sir, when he leaves our houses let us count our spoons.” — Samuel Johnson

Forget the ethnic stereotypes, for they let the methodological cat out of the bag; how do we know the survey participants were all equally honest? If folks steal from hotels w/o fear of punishment, why should they be any more honest on unverifiable surveys? For people lie to themselves, not merely others; Total Depravity trumps statistical sociology.

There's a book "Heads in Beds" which I couldn't finish because it had too much gratuitous vulgarity, but it's a sort of exposé with inside information about the hospitality trade & the depravity of guests & staff. Examples: maids using guest towels to dry bathroom fixtures & Pride to keep tumblers free of streaks, how to tell when parking valets are abusing your car & how to prevent it, how to steal from minibars & get away with it. Depressing stuff.

Maybe your Italian side should threaten your Irish side with cement shoes.

Christopher, that was great! Sometimes I'm hoping he's joking, I don't think he is but I love how you can lighten it up! Thanks for a blessed laugh! I'm Scottish and Dutch - so does that mean I'm an angry penny pincher? Or maybe an awesome golfer, I just don't know it!

I am glad that the Czechs and Croatians are not listed as stealing from hotels because I am half Croatian and half Czech. Croatians and Czechs are honest and don't steal.
