Lost and Found: The ‘Weirdest’ Stuff Guests Forget In Hotels
Sometimes, when you’re caught in the moment of vacation or traveling, it can be easy to leave something behind. Even if it’s something as unusual as your dentures or glass eye. A recent survey from EasyJet, an international budget-friendly airline, revealed some of the weirdest and wackiest items left in hotel rooms.
They surveyed 100 hotels within their portfolio and looked into the items that have been lost or abandoned in the last 12 months. According to the survey results, dentures are one of the “most eccentric” items commonly left behind. Interestingly, hotels admitted to storing false teeth in lost property. You never know, someone may actually go looking for their dentures.
It gets even weirder with left-behind items.
Also revealed in the survey are many reports of “outlandish costumes.” One hotel found a full clown costume, including shoes, a wig, and a red nose. Meanwhile, another hotel found an array of witchcraft paraphernalia in one of their rooms. What’s considered witchcraft paraphernalia? Well, according to Cornell Law, such items include charms, herbs, and objects such as human bones and nightguns, like Kalilozes.
Some hotels reported artificial limbs being left behind. Some people accidentally leave more sentimental items behind at hotels. For one resort included in the survey, a lucky teacup belonging to a grandmother which she was using throughout her trip was left behind. And before you ask, wedding rings and personal photographs are regularly left behind, too, according to the survey results.
While wallets and cash are often forgotten, a hotel found thousands of old German Mark coins tucked away behind a toilet water tank.
If you’re wondering about the more common items left behind those include clothing and keys. Take a look at the complete study and find out more about the weirdest things left behind in hotels here.
