If you’re guilty of three or more of these we recommend never leaving your hometown again.

Are you a dreadful guest at hotels? How many of the below do you do?
Most of us that have travelled often will have a horror story about an awful hotel. There’s the one that has cockroaches; the one with the less-than-optimal plumbing; or the one whose pinkish chicken curry makes passable plumbing a necessity.
But if there’s one thing worse than hotels, it’s the people who stay in them, and there are just as many anecdotes about guests as there are about establishments.
Here’s a checklist of no-go behaviours to make sure you don’t become someone’s cautionary tale on Reddit…
“Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a sea view, and can’t we stop the gulls from being so loud, and the sun really does rise awfully early.”
Oh, OK. I’ll tell the sun to rise on cue, teach the gulls the virtue of silence, and rotate the hotel 180 degrees.
Hotel guests live cheek by jowl with their peers – almost all of whom will blame the establishment for everything you do. Starting an uproar is anti-social anyway, more so when the staff will have to make your apologies.
Honourable mentions go to hallway hellraisers, lift arguers, and the loudly amorous.
We know, hotels claim to be your ‘home away from home’, but you know full well they don’t mean that literally. No, it’s not OK to walk the hallways barefoot or help yourself to the breakfast buffet in swimwear.
Please at least put some pants on before you answer your door.
Hotels are professional businesses. We’re guessing you wouldn’t expect a meeting room at work to be ready four hours early.
Brand new information.
If you do this – in fact if you have ever done this – you are going to hotel guest Hell. It’s not 1850.
We see you there, cramming your bags with complimentary toiletries, slyly trousering the salt sachets, stuffing your inside pockets with stationary…
If we catch you sneaking off with a bathrobe we’re calling the police.
It’s OK if you break a cup – it happens to everyone and 99% of the time you won’t be charged.
It’s not OK if you keep your trap shut and the cleaner gets glass in their foot.
