Having worked for a hotel, urine a little trouble when they bill you double for the hassle

What is it with British men and peeing atrocities?
 
2018-09-12 07:48:56 AM  
So how does this work? The maid comes in, opens the mini bar, checks the bottle caps to ensure they haven't been opened?

I would imagine most maids would just open the mini bar, count the number of bottles that are supposed to be there and then clean the rest of the room and not care about any open ones.

HAHA, my friend years ago stopped at a store to buy an Orangina everyday; sometimes he didn't finish it and left it on a bus stop bench. A local bum hung out nearby and he'd see the poor guy pick it up and drink it. So, being the asshole he is, one day he drank half, then pissed into it to fill it up.

Saw the guy chug it when he was looking out the bus window later.

That seems disgusting and pointless. The hotels I've gone to that have minibars tend to be such tiny bottles at huge prices it's easier just to pack a nice big bottle of vodka bought from a store.
But more recent hotels I've been to lately leave the minibar empty and off, so if you request it to be filled they'll know to check it after you've gone.

Hate mini bars with a passion! $5 for a can of beer!  $25.00 for a mini champagne?

I can understand a hotel wanting a profit area; how about better room service? Maybe discount coupons for a registered guest? Up to 1/2 off for Vip's Or loyalty program.

Better pricing and no scams with the mini bar would surely help!

/don't call me Shirley.

I don't even look for the mini bar when I'm staying at any hotels. I'm always afraid if I open the door to one, I'm automatically charged for looking and this stage in my life, I'm too poor to go into bankruptcy for this nonsense.

If I need to, I'll bring my own supplies. Part of the fun when staying at a hotel is exploring your new area. Pop into a good ole liquor store that's close by and you'll get a nice sample of the "local" atmosphere. For shiats and giggles, when I check in, I always ask the clerk, "hey what's fun to do around here?" If they wait too long or say something like, "well...there's really not much to do around here" I know to just go ahead and check my phone for the nearest liquor store.

I'm always annoyed when I want to stick something in the fridge and space is taken up by a bunch of bottles.

Anyone else surprised that the article says that hotels in Spain are required to provide a minibar?  I can't fathom a reason for that requirement.
 
2018-09-12 08:23:58 AM  
Who has that kind of aim?
 
2018-09-12 08:25:36 AM  
"One in three tourists has admitted to refilling bottles with urine, water and other liquids in hotel rooms in the Costa Blanca "

Got to love those click-bait headlines. One in three may have admitted to refilling them with liquid, but how many actually answered with pee?

"It is believed to be done so tourists can avoid paying often expensive prices for the drinks."

These people who think they pulled a fast one on a hotel need to take a look at their credit card statements at the end of the month, because very little of it slips past the staff. Just because they didn't charge you at checkout doesn't mean you didn't get charged.

I noticed that as well.
they only have to provide that if they have more than 3 Stars...
However, I was under the impression we were not supposed to read the articles?

Most hotels have a person dedicated to restocking the minibar and snacks, and yes, they actually check to see if the seal has been broken.

I'm too poor and my tolerance is way to high to go near a minibar.

I was sent to Omaha for training once (yeah I know but they have a great steakhouse). I went driving all over town looking for a liquor store (this was before google or map quest or at least they weren't reliable), only to find that the grocery store across the street from my hotel sold liquor. I had never witnessed such a thing. At the very best there'd be a separate liquor store next to the grocery. Truly a magical place.

But no, Omaha is farking boring as shiat.

It has nothing to do with being poor and that's a bad judgement to make. it's not "poor" to not want to get shafted and spend  £4.99 on a tiny bottle of Russian standard and then another £3 on a finished can of coke from the minibar.

Even now I'm finally quite comfortably off I wouldn't pay that. Especially when you can get a litre of Russian standard for around £15 in a shop.

Minibars have existed since the first cave was rented out to passing nomads. I think they have it down by now.

Travel Tips, from Steklo

Depending what part of the nation you're in, some places are "dry" and liquor stores are usually far away from where you're currently staying. If you've booked a hotel/motel before hand, it's best to either pack a few bottles while you're still at home or check your phone for the nearest liquor store near your hotel.

Well I'm not actually poor but I would be if I relied on a minibar for my boozing needs.

Last premier inn I went to had even stopped leaving little miniature soaps and shower gels and instead had dispensers nailed to the wall. They really don't like it when you try to take them home.

Well, I'm not as comfortably off as you are so I'm watching where and how I spend my money, especially if I'm staying far away from home. I mean, I might find that one souvenir  I really need to get at the hotel's gift shop...and I want to make sure I can afford it!

Normally I can refill the scotch bottles. If I'm really hydrated I can refill the gin. When I start refilling Jack Daniels or jagermeister I schedule a visit with the urologist.

CSB:

Back in my scumbag days, we got tired of people stealing beer out of our refrigerator during house parties, so we put a bottle of pee in the fridge as a decoy. Sure enough, one party, I hear a commotion downstairs, and find some kid sputtering and crying while his buddies are all laughing at him. Turns out he took a swig and spit it out all over his date. They both left in tears. I had to clean up the mess, but it was worth it.

If anyone considers this a bastard move, understand the kid and his friends were literal Nazis, and he was later arrested for shooting up the local synagogue. Not that we planned it that way, it was just a happy accident.

The Sevvie around the corner? Dad's mini fridge? Didn't know, didn't care, didn't charge.

We were house punks. Most of the guests were crusties. I think you're vastly overestimating the level of accommodations offered.
