A Chongqing hotel guest was surprised to find nearly 10,000 yuan in cash hidden underneath his pillow after an overnight stay last weekend. Not pleasantly surprised, angrily surprised.
The man assumed that the money had not been put there by the Tooth Fairy, so there was only one reasonable explanation left — his room had not been properly cleaned after the previous occupant had departed.
According to Ifeng News, the man, Lu Gang, discovered the pile of cash while checking to make sure he didn’t forget anything before leaving. Astonished by his find, he shouted for his family members to come and check it out. However, he became less happy when he started to think things through a bit.
Police were called and the manager said that the money had likely been left by the previous guest (or maybe the one before that?). The cash was then handed over to the police.
Last year, undercover video revealed the disgusting cleaning practices of one popular hotel chain in Hangzhou. In the footage, the staff were seen wiping up the toilet seat, floor and shower glass with guest bath towels.
Also this weekend, the Chinese Internet was shocked by footage from the dirtiest female dorm room ever. So, hey, it could be worse.
