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...

Right, I know not all hotels do this; as I mentioned I've been places where this didn't happen.

Nor do I begrudge the process. I'm one of the few people I know who leaves a tip for the housekeepers.

It's just... the rational side understands. The irrational side is asking, Wha? Why?

And with all of this and a dollar, I can get a cup of coffee. *G*

We leave tips, too.

Ya, I know what you mean...it's just one of these Mysteries.
