Throw out the Tea-bags
If you’re a tea drinker like myself then you will probably relate to this one. All you coffee drinkers will have to tune out for a moment so here’s a pleasant Youtube video for you to enjoy while us Tea-baggers ( not the crazy American kind ) have a serious chat.
Okay now that the coffee drinkers are occupied let’s chat.
There is nothing worse than arriving at a loverly Hotel only to make myself a cup of tea and find that the sadly neglected tea bags taste like they have been sitting in the complimentary box for months.
The first thing I do when I walk in my hotel room door is throw out all the tea bags and call reception to ask for more. They’re free anyway and will hopefully be replaced with fresh ones the next morning. Also it’s a good idea on long stays to nick the cookies and hot chocolate mix, they are free too and and will be replaced. Even if you’re not eating or drinking them during your stay they are great snacks for train or bus rides and will save you $$$.
Thus endeth todays lesson on how to be a tightarse.
