Also; if you were staying in a hotel, would you make the bed before you left?
a) fucking hell
People actually do this? I thought the person in question was mental.
So you sleep in a bed. You make it. The hotel then come in and strip it. This is a little bit mental, guys.
i bet you dont make beds you stay in in peoples houses. you monster.
Like put the runner thing accross and everything?
Last friend's house I stayed at I nose bleeded all over it- so I doubt it would have been helpful.
I might have encountered them dozens of times, I JUST DON'T KNOW.
is not really making it.
Yep you heard.
In this instance.
and the pillows would be in the right place.
so maybe 'made' isnt the right word. but it would certainly look neat, i'd be able to sit and watch sky sports on it while she gets dressed and then later pack my bag in it.
plus, you need to be able to see under it before you leave the room to make sure you havent left anything under there.
agreed on the checking underneath thing though.
we've been conditioned to be polite
its just neat. if you're in a hotel presumably at some point you're going to be re-packing your bag. are you going to be doing that on an un-made bed? no way i am.
then I pity you my friend.
my sheet often resembles the Turin Shroud, if the Turin Shroud image was slightly wider and made out of toblerone crumbs, peanut dust and stale spaff.
Don't want to make life difficult for cleaning staff.
but, basically: i certainly hope Butlins don't rely on their customers washing up to ensure the next occupants have clean plates...
B) not properly but pull it straight (not tuck the sheets in and shit)
and no (though i might strip the sheets to be helpful if I was staying at a friend's / relative's house)
Yeah- friend's: fine. Hotel: mental.
oh - i might make the bed if i was staying a few nights - i never sleep under anything other than a duvet so their sheet plus blanket (all neatly tucked in) is wasted on me.
Who sleeps with the duvet/sheet still tucked in?
I like having my leg out.
B) Definitely not
B) What's the point, they're just going to rip it apart and start again (unless they are truly scabby). Saying that my partner insists on making it despite any protestation from me, and will even draft me in to help.
and mock them for some time afterwards?
b) I might throw the sheet back over in the rough approximation of a made bed, but of course I'm not going to make the bed, that's insane. It's like offering to wash my own dishes in a restaurant.
They weren't flush so we all agreed to put in some cash for the cost of the dinner.
They also didn't have many plates so we all had to bring plates and cutlery of our own.
Obviously most of us washed our own plates and cutlery so we could take it home. Hosts had a right go when we didn't wash their stuff.
I suppose they did cook, but we all had to trapse across London with our own plates, so sod them.
so the true horror of the soiled sheets hits the maid when they're nice and close to the disaster area.
and also REALLY not nice.
I would never make a hotel bed. They're going to strip it down anyway and I pay them to make my bed for me.
I feel uncomfortable with people tidying up after me
but I wouldn't make a bed that they were going to unmake to clean. That's just madness.
b) Yes, I would but then again I don't make my own bed before I leave it.
I'm giving up on a lot of stuff right now.
because thats just silly.
I do make it nice before I hop into it at night.
I do however step out of my clothes at the end of the day and leave them in that place on the floor until they need washing.
2) Why? What would anyone stand to gain?
Why would she inflict a shit joke on us? Then why would one make the bed in a hotel when it would benefit noone, including those who work there?
Who doesn't love a good penguin joke? Everyone loves a Penguin joke.
2) Yes, because I can't stand leaving it messy. Same impulse at home that makes me take cups and plates back to the kitchen as soon as I've finished with them.
Clark used to give me indigestion with this.
I could feel him itching to take my plate. Stop doing this.
Of course not. I'm willing to bet the people who make hotel beds before leaving are the same people who wipe standing up.
following their spurious and inflammatory claims about duvet consistency.
This explains a lot.
HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
'I just had to go to the cellar and PRETEND that I was on holiday' dealy.
just like my sexuality
are totally mental. that's a significant proportion of you lot I'm talking about..
2) No - but it's a real effort to not straighten it out a little bit.
what's a penguin's second favourite brand of swim/surf wear?
I don't get it
no wait, Luther?
it was Bergerac
I get it
One time I went biking with my friend I watched him tidily make his bed with an expression of amazed contempt. He then looked up and took in my thrown aside sheets with the exact same expression. Not a single word was said about it afterwards.
I'd like everyone in this thread who honestly arse themselves to make a bed that's about to be stripped anyway to imagine my lifetime of unmade hostel and hotel beds. Around thirty beds carelessly left in a state of dishevelment. Thirty beds that had the door closed upon them with their crumpled sheets shamelessly naked to the cruel morning light. Go on. Take that in, you after shower wipers.
b) No, I want them to instantly see the MASSIVE jizz stains all over the sheets and think to themselves ''This guy is a fucking PLAYA''
(I roughly make the bed so it's a fairly neat, but not so they have to untuck the fucking thing to strip it)
You're just encouraging the staff to be lazy and not change the sheets for the next customer.
BECAUSE THEN YOU MIGHT FINALLY GET SOME.
I prefer mine.
(because of the penguins in it)
I guess it's the name that appeals to them.
Just sounds exotic to a penguin.
This makes no sense.
Can't quite believe I bailed on a thread this afternoon because it was too mundane. Hat tipped.
(because of the penguin pictures on the wrappers. The vain cunts.)
Just admit it.
1) I hate you.
FLIPPER THE BIRD!
Just got it. Ha good one ccb.
So the maid thinks there's a person under there.
Works even better if I poke the dead hookers feet out of the end of the bed.
2) Aw hell naw. Especially if I've just used one of a twin, how else do they know which to strip and which to skive?
Stupid unfunny goonish representations that bare no resemblance to real life.
I suppose it would be like a human liking Coupling or something.
it's a joke. Stop being so literal.
Sure if you're staying at a mate's, but they have staff WHO GET PAID TO PULL THE SHEETS OFF!!!
I didn't expect them to pile them neatly on the table and have them lined up on the edge ready for me to collect. I had to pick up people's dirty napkins etc... with them watching me. It wasn't nice but it was my job. I didn't HAVE to do the job, but I did. Also, surely a 'made' bed means you would have to strip them anyway? I don't understand why making a bed in a hotel is better for the maid to strip as apposed to a sheet bundled up on the edge of the bed?
I strip the bed. I don't make it. That was my point.
I hope you're happy everyone. Sitting there in your prams screaming and wailing because you don't understand the penguin joke. You should all be ashamed of yourselves, you MASSIVE SPOILT BABIES.
2. No. Absolutely not. They charge a silly amount of money for me to sleep in the bed, I am not about to give them a free service - like making their bed for them. See also self-check out tills.
A bin man takes away the BIN. So when I put rubbish IN the bin he then will take the bin and empty it. Doing his job would be carrying the bin to his truck for him.
because they're just going to strip the bed after you leave, so making it has no effect.
this is a very odd thread.
well I hope she does anyway.
In fact, I always strip the sheets, duvet cover and pillow cases and leave them in the middle of the bed upon leaving. Unless I'm in a hideous rush and an imminent check-out is needed.
so that I don't have to make much effort, they don't have to make effort to strip it and they still don't quite think I'm some fucking pig. Win win win.
