    Thai hotels: If you have an option to select a room with a bath tub, please make sure there is hot water available.
    Also, why do you provide those tiny soaps which are impossible to unwrap with wet hands?

    ^ Reminds me of when I took my nieces to a hotel for the firsy time. The youngest, about 6 at the time, came running to me all excited about the indoor swimming pool in the room.

    Do many guests disassemble microwave ovens ?[/QUOTE]

    The last 2 hotels I stayed at:
    1. Had to dismantle and clean the showerhead to allow a proper flow of water.
    2. Readjusted the vanity sink plug which was leaking water straight into the drain (impossible to keep a bowl of water to have a shave).

    I hear ya. Paper clips are great for unblocking crusted-up shower head jet holes.

    I’ve adjusted toilet cistern floats so water doesn’t run all night, switched off fridges (so I didn’t have to hear them running all night) and then had to defrost the freezers to avoid a puddle on the floor, cleaned air conditioner filter screens so they actually flow air, fixed defective lighting, ditto windows and insect screens, vented the air out of hot water tanks so they can hold water etc etc etc.

    Stayed several times at one airbnb where the host was a typical Canadian politeness man. The heavy sliding glass door barely slid.
    Me - ‘Got a Phillips head screwdriver ? Let’s head up to the hardware store and get some new rollers’.
    Him - (a musician ....) ‘Oh I don’t know about that - a friend tried to fix his and it was awfully hard and he couldn’t do it’.
    So the next time I stayed there I brought tools and did it myself.

    Jaysus, what sort of hotels are you choosing that have amenities like that?

    If you need a place to stay in Pty with all mod cons and some working, we have a spare room.

    Bring your tools.

    Yeah no worries.
    Need a carport knocked up ?
    House or yacht built ?
    New wiring ?
    High voltage switching ?
    Garden construction and maintenance ?
    Vehicle repairs ?
    Sailing lessons ?
    Maybe just help putting up a tent.
    No problemo.

    Go to a famed old Thai restaurant for lunch.


    The old bint waitress delivers the food, then stands next to the table nattering away, while fuxing coughing, for the entirety of the meal.

    Obviously oblivious to the fact that you've scooted to the far end of the table and are shielding your food with the menu with one hand, and that everyone's body language is screaming Fuck Off.




    She's probably still stood there. Talking.

    Coughing.

    The wife just had a homestay guest with a reservation originally booked for tomorrow contact her about cancelling and getting the third party booking site to not charge. The reason was because a relative just died. Reservation was made on 10 July. Wife...'Are you sure they just died?' Guest...'Yes...why?'. 'Because you already cancelled on 12 July.' Oops!

    It's a bit of a cliche but years ago I worked with a guy who had the same grandfather die twice to justify last minute time off a couple of years apart.

    Was it a Thai guest? I don't know about the human population, but according to legend Thai buffalo can die any number of times.

    Yeah Thai. Have occasionally pondered whether Thai buffaloes die more often than Thai girl mothers need operations.
