Toi­let seat t hieves

The World of Chinese - - MISHMASH -

Let’s get real here: who hasn’t swiped some­thing from a ho­tel room? Maybe one of those lit­tle sham­poo thin­gies? A comb? Some nap­kins? Per­haps a toi­let seat? Steal­ing a toi­let seat may sound weird to you, but it didn’t seem strange to a cou­ple from east­ern China who were stay­ing in a Ja­panese ho­tel. Af­ter dis­cov­er­ing the toi­let seat un­der their bed, they claim they fig­ured it had been left by a previous guest and was, pre­sum­ably by the laws of the sea and ho­tels, fair sal­vage. This was in­cor­rect. The ho­tel con­tacted the tour group to ask what the hell their guests were do­ing tak­ing toi­let seats, prompt­ing the seat’s re­turn and a full apol­ogy. Best part of all, the cou­ple had to stay in an­other ho­tel of the same chain on the last day of their tour. - D.D.
