Grandson once left all the cartridges for his hand-held video game in a pillow case at a Summer rental. (He was told to gather up his bed linens and put them in the laundry bag - but nobody checked to see that he did!)

Apparently, the cleaning crew found the pillow case, turned it in to Property Management and called his mother. The items were returned.

I worked with a huge weird guy who said he always left his " signature" in every motel if the service wasn't great.

I did not want the details as to what " his signature" meant and he never mentioned that the motel found it and mailed it back to him.

Once I left my Passport and about $150 cash in a hotel in Phnom Penh. I arrived at the Thai Airways check-in counter and went to pull out my passport and ticket. I literally freaked out. After about 60 seconds I remembered I "hid" my passport and cash because I was too lazy to place the items in the hotel safe. I'd been in Cambodia almost 3 weeks and felt comfortable doing what I did.

I ran out to the curb and pleaded with a tuk-tuk driver to let me use his phone. I called the hotel and spoke with the manager. He went to my room and retrieved my forgotten items and brought them to the airport.

The tuk-tuk driver got a tip and the hotel manager a BIG tip!

I made my flight to Bangkok with time to spare. I will never forget the feeling of looking in my bag and not having my passport...

Smile "Lost" items

My husband and I took a side trip and stopped at a chain hotel in Portsmouth, NH. It was fine but there was no safe so my husband told me to put my wallet in one of the pillowcases so we could go out and take a walk and I would not have to take a purse. (Feeling of freedom for a woman!)

Well, the next day, we checked out, did the room check, drove up to Maine, decided to have a late lunch (4 PM) and when I went to pay, guess what, no wallet. Then, I remembered. We were hours away but I called, they found it and had it at the front desk. Everyone got a tip. We always leave tips in our room for the maids with a note anyway.

It made us late for our arrival to Boston but we made it. We will always remember the kindness of those at that hotel and will stay there again when we are in the area.

I left a sweater on a chair at a hotel in January. I called when we got home and they sent it to me Fed Express. No problem at all. Very kind. Usually, I am pretty good about checking out.
