Travel Tip of the Day: Heed the Warnings when Filling Up the Tub

BathHeed the Warnings when Filling Up the Tub
Continuing the bath/shower theme from last Monday’s tip, and the common sense-extended theme from last Tuesday’s tip, you’d be shocked to know how many hotel GMs have told me horror stories in which their rooms got flooded by bathwater—because people didn’t monitor the bath after they started running it. According to one GM I spoke with, the Japanese are known to have let a few baths run over, which is probably why the London hotel above (where I stayed last month) has a caution sign written in both English and Japanese. Not all hotel baths are created equal—meaning the speed at which they fill up varies—so if you run one at a hotel, be sure to check on it often to avoid embarrassment (and potentially a clean-up fee).
