Jan 24th 2009 12:38AM My husband and I travel alot. Sometimes it's just a simple weekend getaway twenty minutes from home, other times it is weeklong vacations, and we only have one horror story. We stayed at a local Motel Six that appeared clean, but was not. We got a horrible rash that itched for days before I finally went to the doctor and found out that we had...body lice! Yikes! It took us three months to get rid of it completely, our skin to clear up, and for the sores to heal. I find it rather unfortante that these things happen. A housekeeper has a very disgusting and hard job; only to be made worse by the people who don't care about the mess they make because they don't have to clean it up. *This is the same in a restraunt when parents allow their children to make a complete mess with the crayons and food.*
It isn't impossible to clean a hotel room in under fifteen minutes; we had to clean our dorms at BMT for the Air Force to very high standards and in very little time. All it takes is a proper training program. I know that when housekeepers cut corners that it may not be they're fault. A lot of people are trained incorrectly in various jobs, not just housekeeping.
So, let's be practical folks. Remember that just because someone is cleaning up after us, doesn't mean to trash a place. Let's try to throw trash away, instead of on the floor, recycle things that can be recycled and leave a note. You never know how a simple 'Thank You' will affect someone's day/life.
