Stupid scratchy hotel towels! Too thin to dry you off, too small from having spent a bajillion cycles in the industrial dryer, and scratchy as hell.
Guess they have to make them so crappy to keep people from stealing them.
No, it shows you stay in the cheap hotels. Whenever I stay in the more expensive hotels, the towels are usually thicker than the ones I have at home. The cheap to average hotels have the ones you describe.
Because there's a time-limit and other restrictions on that stuff. No guarantee that it would get wiped from the ledger.
I think it's like 60 days...if you don't check your statements every 60 days then you really need to change that. I check mine at least every week. It's especially important to do that if you travel a lot.
Thankfully, I've never had a purchase that I didn't make, but I am vigilant about checking to make sure.
