If I get someone asking for a glass of water per hour I'm so sending them to Virginia on vacation...

fruit baskets in the guestrooms?   hmmmm.

We have a fruit basket in the common room with some granola bars and other treats.   Not in the guest rooms.

You're probably like us. In a few months the fruit flies will be everywhere. Can't even put fruit out in the afternoon for an hour.

Yep.  The fruit flies are impossible to control.   No more bananas once that happens.   Maybe individually wrapped nuts, cookies, granola bars.

The baskets go in just before expected arrival and come out as I see their tailpipe clear the corner. Usually 2 bananas and 4-5 apples.

 woman who stayed with me who complained that the bananas were too big. and NO she did not want to eat half the banana or part of the banana, she wanted to eat a whole banana from start to finish and mine were too big.

luckily another guest scolded her and told her he was sure i didn't have time to 1. take a poll to find out what size bananas were the 'appropriate size' and then 2. go shopping all around to try to find them.

that was weirdest for me.  as though she needed to find something to complain about

Seashanty the funny thing is I recall this from a few years ago, and I remember saying that I agreed with the woman after we bought bananas that were too big here.

I always try to buy smaller ones, it like buying those giant apples for a packed lunch that you can sit and eat for 40 minutes vs a lunchbox size.. For some reason they were really big for a while...twice the size of a normal banana, which is good for banana puddin' but not for eating.

And I try to find large, pretty (nigh on to impossible) bananas so they can be seen in the fruit basket in the guestrooms.

I try to buy the smallest bananas but only because you get more portions for your money.

16 pillows? I had Mister Ten Towels (only, no more no less)

Can we compile our OWN LIST of weirdest guest requests? I think I have asked this before, and some people were scared to do it.  Those "out" there on the www.

Interesting that they give the information in narrative form, list form, and as an infographic...
