DIRTY UNDERPANTS

Staying at a little place ... NH/MA border ... there were dirty underpants in the bathroom next to the toilet. I checked in three hours ago, went right out and met a friend and had a nice time. Came back and there they were. Just gave me the most yucky feeling ... lax housekeeping I suppose but what else might have been missed? Was the bathroom floor even cleaned? My sight isn't the best but these were hard to miss. Then I wondered if they were possibly being used as a cleaning rag! They are dirty but not dirty water dirty. OMG, I'm overthinking this. Had a bit too much wine and have got the giggles.

I put them in the little trashbag that was in the wastebasket. Tied it up and have them on the floor in there. No one's around to talk to and I don't want to make a big fuss. I'll give them to the innkeeper tomorrow I guess. I don't even know what to say. Would be funny if he's on here and can rant about me as a problem guest. All I know is they aren't mine.

I am not asking for a refund. But I'm taking a second look at everything right now  ... ewww!

The only appropriate response to such a thing is, in order:

a) Horror

b) Apologies and assurances that it will be taken care of

c) Prayer meeting with housekeeping staff

Well 

Fine night's sleep as I never sleep that well away from home anyway.

I brought the panties in the bag to the innkeeper in the morning and privately told him I found someone's underwear on the floor of my bathroom when I checked in and that I'd put them in the bag. 

His response? 'huh' . That's all. 'huh'.  .... before taking the bag and tossing it into the open trash barrell just outside the kitchen. And walking away.

No, I didn't stay for breakfast. 

no

Each member of our houskeeping team has one of these. Helps us spot accidents since we're dog-friendly. We try not to think of other things.

I've missed an entire dresser full of clothes, but not something obviously on the floor. Ugh!

Not not a comforting feeling. I suppose over time I’ve stayed in places both nice and yucky, try to tell myself that things do slip by the innkeeper and at times I suppose I got what I had paid for, at least once I ran after a few hours as rowdy folks passed outside.
