Why does one steal an ironing board? Its not likely to be fenced for all that much, has to be transported to a vehicle and most people who buy stolen goods would have few people they have to iron a shirt for: their parole officer?
More likely it was broken and not replaced (yet.... ever?)
Can't they melt the thousands of bars guests leave behind together, and make new bars?
I think I once saw something where some group saved the part-used soaps, melting them together for the homeless or god knows what.
I am glad to see someone else takes the DND signs. It may still be weird, but I am not alone.
I will admit that in the first out of college job I had I took towels. Mostly for the sport of taking them. Later I took one wooden hanger at a time in places that had them. Nicest in my collection? "Bally's" in AC. I haven't done this nonsense in over 10 years.
I think I admitted it here before, but one time the Coca-Cola machine in the hotel kept issuing credits, then ejecting the bill. Then I hit coin release and got the credit amount! Since they never remembered to give my my priority-guest goodie pack (stayed 20+ nights per year) I consider them still ahead.

I read you can take a bunch of the little soaps
you get from hotels and put them in a plastic
bowl with a little water, heat in the micro till
melted, let sit for a day and you have an
excellent liquid soap you can fill a dispenser
with. Good idea.
Hmm, can't find a link to them, but here's "Clean the world" that is working in Vegas to make soap from the left overs :
And why not?
I got such a kick out of this sign at a place last year, I snapped a pic
You should have just taken the sign. It's free.
I really don't understand taking a half-empty bottle of shampoo (even if I had a direct use for it), unless the next place you're going to stay at isn't going to have any.
[If the bottle costs $50 retail, you're probably staying at a $5,000 place. The heck?]
I haven't bought shampoo or soap in a store in many many years.

I'm not. At both the Flamingo and P Ho there is such a shortage of them that other people stole them right off my door to use themselves (or perhaps they're just inconsiderate and want to take them home as well, couldn't find one in their room). Taking them as 'souvenirs' is pretty idiotic and I imagine that at least 90% of them taken for that purpose just end up as trash within a year.
it on the door that I close the door on it now
and just part of the sign is sticking out so they
can't steal it.
