Is This Up To Code?!
Upon entering my hotel room for the first time, I cheerily announce to the empty room, “Hi Honey, I’m home!”
Then I busy myself with actually making myself at home. I’m not a coffee drinker so I move the coffee maker out of the bathroom. I know they have to put it somewhere, and the bathroom is often the only source of water, but esthetically speaking, even if I did drink coffee, I wouldn’t want to brew it in the john. It’s just not right.
I also unplug the hair dryer as I bring my own. I’ve written about my big hair before, so you know how important this is.
I can’t remember which hotel I was calling home when I took these pictures, and I sincerely hope that mentioning it does not embarrass anyone who has made my housing arrangements in the recent past. While I can’t remember where this was, I know that my stay was comfortable as well as thought-provoking.
So check out the “interesting” way this hotel devised to keep patrons from, I don’t know, walking off with their wall-mounted hair dryers?!
I’m no electrician. I’m not sure how this is supposed to be wired, but I have a feeling this isn’t it.
Put it this way, I’ve never seen this before. I can’t even imagine how they did it, but I have a feeling beer was involved.
When the hair dryer dies, what do they do? Kind of makes cleaning the splash guard a little more difficult than it needs to be. I guess it just proves there’s more than one way to plug in a hair dryer.
Thank goodness the hole in the wall is centered.
