Thou Shalt not Steal? Or Shalt Thou?

Last night I was watching the Marriage Ref and the issue was that the husband was compulsively stealing soaps, shampoos, razors, and anything he could find from hotels (and probably had about 7 years worth of supplies). 

If you're familiar with "The Call" it was that he can continue stealing as long as he gives some of it away to homeless shelters and acts like the Robin Hood of the Holiday Inn (per Jason Alexander). 

But anyway...this issue popped up AGAIN on today and I felt the need to address it.

Apparently, stealing the holy bible from a hotel is completely a-ok.  They even posted an article entitled: Steal these items from your next hotel.

To Steal:

Pens & Pencils, lotions, stress balls & snacks, robes & umbrellas, and Gideon Bibles

According to the fact-checker on th Marriage Ref, hotels believe every time you use their product, you'll remember the wonderful experience you had there.  I'm not sure if I agree:

The shampoo & conditioner usually smells like crap. Not to mention you probably stole it just to stick it to the hotel for charging you to park in their garage.

Or Not to Steal:

Towels & Linens (note:Holiday Inn alone estimated that they lost 560,000 towels in one year -- and that's just one chain), Laundry Bags, Docks & Clocks, Batteries & Light Bulbs, Art.

So now you've got the 4-1-1, Happy Traveling.
