You know the little bottles of the worlds shittiest shampoo, conditioner and lotion we all find in our hotel rooms and for some reason go bat shit over and insist on using and usually taking home with us? I've noticed that the housekeepers here bring back the partially used bottles that the guests leave behind in their rooms and deposit them in a box everyday. At the last place I worked the housekeepers did the same thing but it was because they were allowed to take them home with them - here - not so much.
HERE we collect them to REFILL them. Refill them as in leave the unused soap inside and just add some more from a gigantic bottle of equally cheap dollar store brand that my boss purchased for us.
Does she ask us to clean out the old product and sterilize the bottles? HA, no. Nope, that would be a waste of product and water so I was told to merely fill em up.
The laughable part is that she bought pearlized white products to go into the clear blue shampoo and the green conditioner. They don't even bother to match the colors! What the hell!? After filling them all up I got the bright idea to just throw them all into the dryer on "cold" air and let 'em whirl around a bit and mix things up to one uniform color. DO YOU SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME?? They're turning me into a conniving beotch! A couple of them broke (inside the pillow case I put them in in the dryer) so at least I had an excuse to wash them but, well, ew.
Ew. Ew. What is WRONG with these people? ? ? They own 13 succesfull hotels and are SO not hurting for money, even during the recession they've done fine, so this is just rediculous. And it's not like they're trying to be "green" - hell no.
It's bad enough they make us re-use not only the room keys but the PAPER sleeves we give them to people in but now this? Do they not care a ALL about spreading germs? God only KNOWS what we're passing around! Of course what's a little dirty paper slip compared to not washing the blankets I don't know, but it get's to me all the same.
