Hotel drinking glasses...

How many times have you used those hotel drinking glasses?

How often will you do it NOW?

Re: Hotel drinking glasses...

Thanks Bamm.... I'm not thirsty any more! What's really scary is how some bars wash glasses. Especially when they get real busy.

Re: Hotel drinking glasses...

I might be a little germaphobic but for the last 20 years or so I do not order anything that does not come in a sealed bottle if at all possible for reasons like that. At resturants I have considered bringing my own knives & forks as well but have never actually done so... I developed this paranoid habit after seeing what goes on in the back room of a very expensive resturant in my area. That coupled with the fact that the salad chef there who habitually cut his hands while working on peoples fancy meals had advanced HIV.

Is your name Howard and do you have OCD?

Seriously though, we probably obsess more over clean glasses or silverware in a restaurant than we do about driving safely. Which carries the higher risk? You'd be better off growing your own food because it's journey to your table from a farm, grocery store or kitchen is a very dirty and unpleasant one - sad but true my friends....

Disgusting nonetheless, but I'd like to see them changing the linens...maybe even a black light over the mattress.

Who's "Mr. S"?

I think he was referring to this Howard:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Hughes

The germ obsessed recluse. I don't recall him being referred to as Mr. S though!

The OCD reference lead me to believe Howard Stern .. That & of course the chance that anyone typing here would be Huges is slim due to the effects of death


As a side note The Avaitor was a pretty good flick

I just wonder how they get the red off?!
(Tucker, Hughes is instrumental in that movie as well)

Re: Hotel drinking glasses...

That was nasty. I remember as a teenager I got a job at a restaurant as a dishwasher. My second day in was a Friday night and it was busy with dishes backing up,,when the guy training me, said just rinse off the dishes that aren't to dirty and put them in the clean pile. I quit a day or two after.

Re: Hotel drinking glasses...

I've worked in various hotels in the UK. A lot of cleaners use only 1 sponge to clean the whole room, toilets AND cups. Some plastic cups are also re-used... Restaurants are worse.

Re: Hotel drinking glasses...

When people start dying over it then I'll start worrying. I've never used those glasses at hotels and I don't plan to anyways.

This reminds me of a short stint I had at a pizza place in North Carolina. I was supposed to make sauce by combining several different cans in a very large and deep pot. I was looking for a spoon to stir it with and the guy told me to roll up my sleeves and use my arm. I thought he was joking until he did it himself - almost all the way up to his armpit. I was shocked and they did it every time - not being malicious either!! Funny thing is that it was great pizza, and I Never stopped eating it even after the mixing bowl incident.

Re: Hotel drinking glasses...

The true fact is that many of my friends and myself have traveled poor 3rd world countries, and never really got sick, so i think my body can handle a few dirty glasses, and with that said, I'm not stupid enough to trust a cleaner to wash for me.

Most hotels have a stocked bar fridge and if your even more stupid to pay those prices "guilty" then drink straight from the bottle. Plus its more classy to drink from the bottle
