Complimentary Hotel Soap

    I found this item a few years ago. Please persevere with this it's quite funny.

    The following letters are taken from an actual incident between a London hotel and one of its guests. The hotel ended up submitting the letters to the Sunday Times.
    Dear Maid,

    Please do not leave any more of those little bars of soap in
    my bathroom since I have brought my own bath-sized Imperial

    Please remove the six unopened little bars from the shelf
    under the medicine chest and another three in the shower soap
    dish. They are in my way.

    Thank you,
    S. Berman


    Dear Room 635,
    I am not your regular maid. She will be back tomorrow,
    Thursday, from her day off.
    I took the 3 hotel soaps out of the shower soap dish as you

    The 6 bars on your shelf I took out of your way and put on
    top of your Kleenex dispenser in case you should change your

    This leaves only the 3 bars I left today which my
    instructions from the management are to leave 3 soaps daily.

    I hope this is satisfactory.
    Relief Maid

    Dear Maid
    I hope you are my regular maid.
    Apparently Kathy did not tell you about my note to her
    concerning the little bars of soap. When I got back to my
    room this evening, I found you had added 3 little Camays to
    the shelf under my medicine cabinet.

    I am going to be here in the hotel for two weeks and have
    brought my own bath-size Imperial Leather, so I won't need
    those 6 little Camays, which are on the shelf. They are in
    the way when shaving, brushing teeth etc.

    Please remove them.
    S. Berman

    Dear Mr Berman,
    The assistant manager, Mr Kensedder, informed me this morning
    that you called him last evening and said you were unhappy
    with your maid service.

    I have assigned a new girl to your room. I hope you will
    accept my apologies for any past inconvenience.

    If you have any future complaints, please contact me so I can
    give it my personal attention. Call extension 1108 between
    8AM and 5PM.

    Thank you.
    Elaine Carmen

    Dear Miss Carmen,
    It is impossible to contact you by phone since I leave the
    hotel for business at 7:45 AM and don't get back before 5:30
    or 6.00 PM. That's the reason I called Mr Kensedder last
    night. You were already off duty. I only asked Mr Kensedder
    if he could do anything about those little bars of soap.

    The new maid you assigned me must have thought I was a new
    check in today, since she left another 3 bars of hotel soap
    in my medicine cabinet, along with her regular delivery of 3
    bars on the bathroom shelf.

    In just 5 days here I have accumulated 24 little bars of
    soap. Why are you doing this to me?

    S. Berman

    Dear Mr Berman,
    Your maid, Kathy, has been instructed to stop delivering soap
    to your room and to remove the extra soaps.

    If I can be of further assistance, please call extension 1108
    between 8 AM and 5 PM.

    Thank you,
    Elaine Carmen,

    Dear Mr Kensedder,
    My bath-size Imperial Leather is missing.
    Every bar of soap was taken from my room, including my own
    bath-size Imperial Leather.

    I came in late last night and had to call the bellhop to
    bring me 4 little Cashmere Bouquets.

    S. Berman

    Dear Mr Berman,
    I have informed our housekeeper, Elaine Carmen, of your soap

    I cannot understand why there was no soap in your room since
    our maids are instructed to leave 3 bars of soap each time
    they service a room.

    The situation will be rectified immediately.
    Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience.
    Martin L. Kensedder
    Assistant Manager

    Dear Mrs Carmen,
    Who the hell left 54 little bars of Camay in my room?
    I came in last night and found 54 little bars of soap. I
    don't want 54 little bars of Camay. I want my one damn bar of
    bath-size Imperial Leather.

    Do you realise I have 54 bars of soap in here?
    All I want is my bath-size Imperial Leather.
    Please give me back my bath-size Imperial Leather.
    S. Berman

    Dear Mr Berman,
    You complained of too much soap in your room, so I had them

    Then you complained to Mr Kensedder that all your soap was
    missing, so I personally returned them. The 24 Camays which
    had been taken and the 3 Camays you are supposed to receive

    I don't know anything about the 4 Cashmere Bouquets.
    Obviously your maid, Kathy, did not know I had returned your
    soaps, so she also brought 24 Camays plus the 3 daily Camays.

    I don't know where you got the idea this hotel issues
    bath-size Imperial Leather.

    I was able to locate some bath-size Ivory which I left in your room.
    Elaine Carmen

    Dear Mrs Carmen,
    Just a short note to bring you up-to-date on my latest soap

    As of today I possess:
    * On the shelf under the medicine cabinet -18 Camay in 4 stacks of 4 and 1
    stack of 2.
    * On the Kleenex dispenser - 11 Camay in 2 stacks of 4 and 1 stack of 3.
    * On the bedroom dresser - 1 stack of 3 Cashmere Bouquet, 1stack of 4
    hotel-size Ivory, and 8 Camay in 2 stacks of 4.
    * Inside the medicine cabinet - 14 Camay in 3 stacks of 4 and 1 stack of 2.
    * In the shower soap dish - 6 Camay, very moist.
    * On the northeast corner of the tub - 1 Cashmere Bouquet, slightly used.
    * On the northwest corner of the tub - 6 Camays in 2 stacks of 3.
    Please ask Kathy when she services my room to make sure the
    stacks are neatly piled and dusted. Also, please advise her
    that stacks of more than 4 have a tendency to tip.

    May I suggest that my bedroom window sill is not in use and
    will make an excellent spot for future soap deliveries.

    One more item, I have purchased another bar of bath-size
    Imperial Leather, which I am keeping in the hotel vault in
    order to avoid further misunderstandings.
