A woman has caused outrage online after admitting she steals towels every time she visits a luxury hotel.
The controversy started when someone started a post on Mumsnet’s Am I Irrational? topic titled “What crime did you commit when you were kidnapped from a hotel?”
Posted by Written: “I am definitely guilty of stealing things from a hotel room.
“I never buy anything too big, usually tea bags, toilet rolls and toiletries when I leave.”
In response, others have shared what they’ve taken from the hotel, with one saying: “DP (dear partner) and I always bring a few large towels just because we can.
“They’re always super long and very comfortable. I love them lol.”
But the admission sparked a backlash from others, with one saying: “It’s really, really embarrassing.”
However, the scarf thief replied: “I’m not embarrassed at all so why am I posting it.”
Another hit back, writing: “I know you say you’re not ashamed of stealing PP towels, but you should be.
“It was theft. I was shocked.”
“You are a simple and simple thief,” commented a third. “And you brag about it.
“Hopefully one day they make you unpack and embarrass you but you probably won’t. Get a job and pay for them yourself.”
A hotel employee then weighed in on the argument, writing: “Please don’t steal towels!
“The REAL supply chain issues are affecting hotels right now, and even if say a hotel, Holiday Inn or Best Western, they’re still owned by independent owners (files) Large corporations only lend them brand names), so you’re in effect stealing from much smaller businesses than you think.
“I know some owners who, because of supply chain issues, are filling the void by buying laundry from chain stores while they wait for their hotel-grade linens to arrive, etc…it’s a mess.
“Just have the comforts of most people and be done with it!”
Speaking of towels, This is how often you should wash them.
