That is not stealing. The branded pens they want you to take and use. Same with notepads.

Not stealing :
Pens
Postcards
Stationary
Individual Toiletries, both liquid and bar soap
Sewing kits
Shoe shine kits
Shower caps
Coffee
Cream and sugar
Gift or fruit baskets
Complimentary bottled water or drinks
Local info magazines

Might be stealing, depends on the hotel :
Bathrobes
Slippers
Rolls of toilet paper
Boxes of kleenex

Stealing :
Towels and washcloths
Floor mats and rugs
Sheets
Linens
Iron/Ironing board
Hangars
Artwork
Alarm clocks
Trash cans
Phones
Tvs and radios
Minibar items

Rude stealing:

eating or using stuff out of the minibar and putting an empty container or other object in there to defeat the security on it.

More than a few hotels I've stayed in during the last decade or so have signs in the room with the pricing per item found removed, which they will just charge to your cc after you leave. They're tired of the pilfering.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Can I just unscrew the cap on the mini-bottles, leaving them in the mini fridge, then suck out the alcohol with a straw?

A friend of mine said one of the most stolen items from his hotel is the batteries out of the remote control.

For a second, I thought Babs' list was of things she doesn't steal, things she might steal and things she's definitely stealing. I was like, damn Babs, you steal their ironing boards? Then I reassessed my interpretation.

If you must steal those lotions at least use them promptly. Very dangerous not to.

I like the ice buckets for use but I don't steal them.

Nicks knacks?? Can't beat those magnetic clips.



Why so? Do they go bad?

Is taking the "do not disturb" signs stealing? I have a collection of them from various hotels I've stayed at around the world. If they didn't want you to take them, when why do they put the name of the hotel on them? Wizard jr. has taken me to task over it.
