The embarrassing things people have been caught doing by housekeepers

Seems like a hotel’s ‘Do not disturb’ sign doesn’t really do what it’s meant to.

According to new research, for some housekeeping staff, they seem to use the ‘Do not disturb’ as a rough guide rather than an actual respectful rule.
Travel booking website Sunshine surveyed 1,573 Brits over the age and posed the question “Have you ever been caught in an embarrassing scenario by housekeeping staff walking into your room unexpectedly during a holiday?”
The most common mortifying experience?
People being walked in on in the bath or shower by hotel workers.
The next most common is people being caught having sex. Yikes.
Here are the final results:
  1. Seen in the bath or shower – 35%
  2. Caught having sex – 23%
  3. Naked in the room – 21%
  4. On the toilet – 14%
  5. Watching an adult film – 5%
Some specific hotel tales include a London man in his 60s who was belting out Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” so loudly he didn’t hear a housekeeper come in, and a man in his 40s who was dancing around in his wife’s bikini and heels.
Two more stories feature a woman who was walked in on when vomiting all over the bed after a big night out, and another was busted with her legs spread and shaving her bikini line in the bathroom.
According to the survey, 47% of people feel that housekeeping staff ‘often invade privacy’ of their hotel guests, and 33% of those who’d been busted in an uncomfortable situation actually had a ‘Do not disturb’ sign on their door.
Best to hang the sign AT ALL TIMES. Just in case.
