We all know that sinking feeling you get when you realise you left something in your hotel room, but did you know that some of the most common items left behind are sex-related?
One flight attendant found that out the hard way recently, after a rather awkward memo made its way onto a popular Facebook page.
A Fly Guy’s Cabin Lounge posted a teleprinter message informing one unlucky crew member that they’d left something behind.
“Hi from crew-watch…,” the message reads.
“We just received a call from the hotel in Man they found a 25cm dildo in one of the crew rooms can you let them know it can be collected at ops later.”
The post was accompanied by the caption “Ok who left their toys behind in Manchester?”
The post has since generated more than 4,000 reactions and almost 800 comments, some of which, are hilarious.
“They even measured it, I guess someones being “creative” with their love stories,” one commenter quipped.
“I work in a hotel and in our lost property we have a sex shop lol,” another said.
According to News.com.au, one-third of items left behind in hotels are sex-related.
“While we fully expected smartphones, laptops and chargers to top the list, we were really surprised by some of the more unusual items our hotel partners have come across in their rooms — especially the number who regularly find abandoned sex toys,” said Andrea Tarpey, from Laterooms.com, who carried out the survey cited by News.com.
“Our hoteliers are constantly amazed, and often outraged, by the things that guests routinely leave behind in their hotel rooms, with items ranging from the ordinary to the outlandish.”
