Checking in guests when another guest walks right past me into the kitchen and starts opening the cabinets searching for something. I ask, 'Can I help you?' Glasses. Walked right past the glasses AND the sign that says 'STOP!'

Had to lock all the cupboards and put the sign up higher (he's tall).

 So you have a lock on every cabinet in the kitchen?

Every cabinet I want to keep guests out of. The cabinets that hold vases, candle holders and the pots and pans aren't locked. The glasses, plates, food, etc are locked. They are locked because we have tried to serve breakfast with 4 glasses and 10 plates. Guests walk off with all of this to their rooms and don't return it.

We have all those 'amenities' out on display now in the guest area. Plates, glasses, silverware, cups, etc. Which this guy walked right past.

Because it looks like a cute little guest kitchen, not a big commercial make breakfast for 18 kitchen.

Some things never change....

That's the best description right there. But where they think the breakfast gets made, I don't know! Maybe behind the door that's marked 'Laundry'? You're right, tho, most people wouldn't consider it big enough for a family of 2, much less to feed a whole innful of guests!

He wasn't here on check-in, his wife was. He didn't get the tour. I ran into him outside (he didn't know it was me until later) and he asked where they could go to get 'food'. I didn't think anything of it at the time until I continued on my walk and wondered WHY he wanted the grocery store? I got home and asked hibs about it. Did they think the kitchen was open? Hubs said no he had told them all that at check-in.

Apparently it got lost between wife and husband!

When I accosted him for going into the kitchen I asked, 'Did you find the grocery store alright?' Then he recognized me.

They've gone out for dinner so no worries about them trying to cook.

You need inn shirts and name tags so your guests know who you are.

Maybe the guest forgot to put on his glasses & that's why he missed the glasses.

I was standing in the street talking to my waking buddy when he pulled up to ask about the grocery store. I had on the same outfit in the house. But a guy who wouldn't see an 8x10 sign in a big, shiny frame wouldn't remember me from a half hour before even if I had on a logo'd shirt.

I do like the logo'd shirt idea, tho. We've talked about this a couple of times. We need a logo, tho!
