Is it a Conspiracy?

What is it about motel/hotel places, that when a guest is staying longer than overnight the housekeepers clean up the little soap bars every day? I mean, there's enough soap in those bars for a week, no worries. Yet every day the bar of soap disappears, and a tightly wrapped brand new one is there in its place.

Now it could be that I'm excessively frugal; I've no idea what a little bar of soap costs. And, since I live with someone who makes soap, I know that soap bars may be added back to a batch of new soap without too much trouble.

But I've got this image of a black market in recycled soap bars...

Confession time.
I tend to tuck extra soap bars and shampoo in my kit bag, save them up, then donate them to Casa or other places when I get home.
Unless I stay at a Radisson. The Asira shampoos are mine, all mine, and I will do anything to get extra ones.

Oh, I've done that too, I'm sure most everyone does. Some of the shampoo's I've snagged, once I've used them up I refill the little bottles for travelling.

It's just that when I stay someplace longer than one night, it seems sort of odd that the bar of soap I use disappears every day. It's a reusable resource, probably doesn't cost much but would save the place some money. And, there are some places I've stayed where the soap doesn't disappear when I stay a week or so.

Who sez this world ever makes sense?

Rodney says. Just ask Bishop Bullwinkle of the Sixth Congregational Interstellar Church of Rodney.
