My Usual Kindness Act ...


--by brindlegirl, posted Sep 27, 2015
My usual kindness act I do whenever I stay in a hotel ... chocolate rose, card with beautiful words inside and either gift card or lotto ticket enclosed. The housekeepers do such a lovely job cleaning our rooms I always like to thank them. This time however I did a little extra kindness....

I made their job as easy as I could. I left our room spotless, emptied bins for them and loaded the dishwasher and washed dishes. A small gesture but one they'll appreciate ♥

That said, they usually feel good about what they have done. 😊 will start to write thank you notes and leave choccies x

But I agree; the workers often find horrible messes when they go into a newly vacant room. It's wonderful when they get a surprise like you left them. Thank you for this kindness.
