Don't be fooled!

Today I have a word of warning for my fellow travellers. If you happen to be using the toiletries provided by your hotel, don't just assume that the pale blue liquid is going to be mouthwash.

You might be in for a nasty surprise if you try to gargle this. Luckily I didn't learn this lesson first hand, but a coworker who shall remain nameless had the unpleasant experience of having his mouth washed out with soap before he began cursing.

Or wonder too much about what's under the sheets either. I take my own pillow too.

I've come off a 22 hour shift and brushed my teeth with face cream in a tube.

Doesn't taste all that good.

I am waiting for a post about the inspection process when you first go in a motel room.

DC, I always wonder a bit about the sheets (and beds in general) at hotels. It always makes me want to shower off in the morning, and as TBS has alluded to, I always check my room for bedbugs and similar creepy crawlers. I'm quite intent upon not taking any guests home with me.

I bet that was enough to wake you up for a bit. I'm rather fortunate in that sometime between 12 and 16 hours at work I'll typically be told to leave the plant. There are far too many ways to lose a limb or a life around our equipment. All it takes is one slip-up, so we really can't afford to have sleepy people on the job.
