Hotels Are Able To Track The Towels You Steal

There’s something utterly delicious about hotel beds… and towels… and robes. They’re so decadently fluffy and epically cozy, we’d totally steal them if we could.

And much of the time, we do. Towels are among the most-stolen items in hotels, The Telegraph reports. We could’ve guessed that.

But we never would’ve guessed that hotels can tell when you’ve stolen a towel (or robe or duvet cover for that matter). It’s all thanks to a tiny, M&M-sized tracking device that thousands of hotels have embedded in their linens — a device that lets them know where their towels, robes and bedsheets are at all times.

 

The main service they use is Linen Technology Tracking, which provides the chips to some 2,000 hotels around the country, according to its executive VP William Serbin. The company’s initial goal was to let hotels track which linens had made it from the hotel to the cleaners and back again, but the chips have also proven handy for keeping tabs on stolen goods that guests think have slipped out unnoticed.

“One hotel uses the chips to monitor the elevator banks,” Serbin told The Huffington Post. “Any time one of their towels passes through the elevator bay, Housekeeping gets an alert.”

Well fuck me right? Now the waiting game begins of when the FBI is going to surround my house and take me down. I’m notorious for taking “free” shit from hotels. Comfy towels, robes, pillows, you name it. When they finally track all this shit there gonna lock me in jail and throw away the keys. Sneaky move by the hotel industry. Playing chess while we are all playing mother fuckin checkers. Good game bros.

SwaggyG Vacation Update: Did I just Meet Redfoo From LMFAO?

20140620-144056-52856471.jpg

Yes. Yes I did.
Sorry for the potato quality picture, but that was the best I could get without it being too obvious.

I like the approach Redfoo took in order to stay incognito here, getting fat as shit hoping no one recognizes you. It may not be the healthiest approach at life gaining 200 lbs to go out in public, but you have to respect the hustle of the guy.

Although highly effective to the average basic bitch, there’s no getting by SwaggyG. He’s a legend in the college party scene with hits like “Shots” and “Party Rock Anthem”.

You be the judge.

SwaggyG Vacation Update: People of Florida

So your boy SwaggyG is taking his talents relatively close to south beach (St. Cloud + Clearwater), instead of taking this valuable time off, I’ve decided to give up to the minute updates on how the trip is going. A blogger pretty much has moral code in life to follow, that code being “Blog is life nigga” (does that make me a hardo?). Can’t take time off from blogging, you just can’t.

With the first “People of Florida” post, it’s only fitting that this squid was literally the first person I saw on my way to get my bag.

My first take on this is that this guy is an absolute SAVAGE. Knee high Nike socks and polo low cut shoes!? This guy has no regard for life at all. Send this guy over to Iraq to take on those jihads and I guarantee a victory within 45 minutes.

It took a while for me to get the perfect shot, and to be honest I’m 100% positive he knew that I was going to attempt to get it. Little did he know I live by rule number one in life: “Blog is life nigga”, and because of that I lurked around ever crevasse in the airport to get the perfect shot.

Was it awkward when my camera shutter went off?
Yes.

Was it worth is?
Yes.

Does he have any idea I just made him Internet famous?
😉
