A vibrator. An industrial-grade sex toy the size of a military assault pistol, along with an instruction manual that would make the authors of the Kama Sutra blush. I have a pretty good imagination, but I can't tell you the number of times I turned the page and thought to myself, "I never would have thought of that...."

When you turned it on, one end of it glowed blue, and according to the manual, it had more attachments than a Kirby vacuum cleaner.

Alas, the guests took those, along with the battery charger, with them when they left. They never called for it, though I sometimes wonder if the NSA might have a satellite trained on our lost-and-found box, since it seems like such a horrifyingly subversive, if efficient, appliance.

Huge pair of panties draped over a blade of the bedroom ceiling fan. But the guests were innkeepers so what could I expect!

It would have been even weirder if there were a pair left by each one of us!

Today I found this child's toy that he left behind. It was kind of this little pop-gun-Lego sort of thing where you squeeze it and the little piece shoots thru the air. Anyway, I had it in my hand, bending over to pick up a pillow off the floor and somehow managed to trigger the thing and popped myself right in the eye! OW!!! surprise It still hurts.

So happy we don't have the privacy for your guests!

How about a receipt for a personal sexual toy that clearly suggested it was going to be used in him and not in her. Reminds me of the initials of a British Petroleum company...

When one takes enough meds to fill a shoe box and leaves it behind, I would call that weird.

Rhe reebocks were weird to me because those puppies were expensive! and no call.

Reebocks (no call asking for them either)

A Cartier diamond ring.  The owner just about had a heart attack when she realized that she left it on the bedside table.  Thing is...she was a real PITA....came down at 11 each morning expecting breakfast and didn't check out on time.  I mailed it back to her, insured for $20,000 and she did reimburse us...but she never said thank you.  What an entitled brat!!

We had a PITA who snuck extra people in the room. After they left we found her reading glasses. She emailed for them and her signature line was that of a mgr at a big brand name hotel. REALLY? Potty Mouth (auto filter).

So, I told her she would need to send a SASE for me to mail them back.

It's always hard to imagine how the guest looked around the room and didn't see a five foot Buddha! Unless this was a huge suite and it was behind a door.

We get very mundane items:

  • chargers
  • undies
  • shoes
  • clothing
  • jewelry
  • film (back in the day)
  • teddy bears or other snugglies from kids.

There was that run of suitcases a few years ago.

And everyone carries a 6 foot long wooden cross around.
