Content Tags: katy-l-wood I think growing up on a steady diet of fanfiction made me hate traditional book genres. Like, I don't care what the overall "theme" is. Gimme the tags. Is there character death? Sibling rivalry? Snarky best friend? That'll do way more to get me into a book than slotting it into one of a dozen strictly defined boxes that tells me almost nothing gallusrostromegalus Last time I was in a bookstore I was rifling through the paperbacks going "where the hell is the Content rating? is this 'mature or are we in for actual funtimes here? And where are the Content Warnings? whatcha got here book? You gonna get weird on me?" So really, Ao3 has me spoiled wheresquidsdare This gave me a brilliant idea for book displays at the library. #angst #enemies to lovers #plot twist katy-l-wood You are a good librarian! wheresquidsdare None eangst aplot twist awkward #6on't judge a book by its cover I only have flat shelves to work with but.... did it noctnoku I found a book in the library with content tags and suddenly I realised what l'd been missing all this time MORE? w Alsoa FILE UNDER IS BN 97 FANTASY Savage Lands Vengeful Gods An Expected Journey Battalions at War 9 780857 U.S suallenparker Is there a blog for that?

I work in hotels/resorts, and honestly, take the little shampoos and soaps! We throw them away when you leave (we don’t know if you’ve opened them and messed with them or whatever, so for health and safety it all goes in the trash)If you stay at the fancier places or chains, they’ve actually done some bit of thought into the scents for the toiletries, in that if you use them while at home you’ll remember the time you stayed at the hotel and be more likely to return.Just don’t take the towels or the robes or any of that shit, it’s expensive. This is true, all soaps, shampoos, and the like are tossed after a guest checks out of the hotel even if it’s clearly unopened because it is considered a health hazard violation in most places if they’re left there. If someone were to somehow get sick from it, a hotel can be shut down. Just take the toiletries, they’re ordered in bulk as is and only cost the hotel a few dollars to order them by the hundreds And even if you don’t use them, you can donate them to your local homeless shelter or other similar charity and give someone something they could use that would otherwise go to waste. PLEASE TAKE THE SOAPS. PLEASE DONATE THE SOAPS. It’s one of the biggest requests shelters/supply banks get. You want to make their fucking day? Show up with socks, undies, diapers, and toiletries. And here I am not taking them to avoid being wasteful. And here I was not wanting to steal things from the hotels. The more you know. Reblogging again because I didn’t even think about donating them to charity. I figured they were too small to be useful, but they would be perfect for shelters and the like. while we’re on the subject! if u are donating things to a shelter that supports women, especially trans women, please also consider going to the dollar store and buying a couple packs of razors! For trans women who are unable to get HRT, being able to shave helps a lot. Also if u can afford it, get a couple packs of the fancy tampons and pads!!!! What about the packets of coffee and hot chocolate that some hotels have in the rooms? Are those to take or do we leave them? i’ve known this for decades, since i did something odd back in the 90′s: i asked. so when i stay in hotels i take any still-full toiletries from my room with me, because they’re very handy for road trips and camping. you can’t take a full size bottle of shampoo camping, after all, that’s ridiculous. mostly you can just rinse the sweat off in the campsite shower and not worry about being a little funky – hell, i used to not even bother cuz i hated the slimy concrete floors and i’d just swim in the lake or whatever – but when you get weird sap in your eyebrow or congealed bacon grease in your leg hair holy crap do you appreciate those tiny soaps and shampoo bottles. As a Front Desk Rep.- Yes! Take the coffee. Same deal. We don’t know if you’ve messed with them and they get thrown out too. Also, they’re there for you??? Like. It’s not theft. Have it. : Don't forget Clothes Laptop Keys Toothbrush Wallet or purse Check the safe Passport Check the bedside table Mobile phone Kids Steal the toiletries Chargers alexanderreid: jumpingjacktrash: commie-ringo: lazulisong: constablewrites: scifinut: youbestnotmiss: youcantseebutimmakingaface: trilliath: halduron-brightwang: slightlynaive: diary-of-a-chinese-kid: This hotel reminds you to steal the toiletries!
