    Look, one time I left a half eaten Uncrustable ($2.50) about 2/3 of a chocolate milk($2) half a flatbread ($6). It was all gone when I came back to the room, so I assume the housekeepers took it. I couldn't ask since they don't speak american. Add up that value, it's over $10. And that was just one day. So who is the cheapskate?

    I was including depreciation. Uncrustable = $5. I ate half, so I can't claim to have given Mousekeeping a full $5.

    I am assuming that you are just trying to be funny with a post like this? You don't leave a tip and really, that is fine. You are entitled to that and more. Who am I to judge. Obviously the food wasn't there because it was thrown away. But could you please leave the language/race thing out of it? Even if you are just trying to be funny, on-line where is is hard to read intent, it comes off as racist and uncalled for.

    Without scrolling through the whole thread i don't believe he said he didn't tip. Perhaps you are confusing him for another member with a similar avatar who seems to boast about that fact.

    He has said a few times through out the history of the thread that he doesn't tip because mousekeeping is baked into the price of the room. That is his own choice; I may not agree with it in terms of etiquette, but it is really none of my business.

    Reading is hard. Jokes are harder. Sarcasm is hardest.

    You think it got thrown away? But then you say they don't make enough money. If they are so poor, why would they throw away my gifts?

    I am not going to roped into a back and forth. I can read, get jokes, and sarcasm just fine; however, on-line is is harder to determine when someone is being a jerk, and when they are just playing around. Which was why I stated that I assumed you were trying to be funny. I was just pointing out that the language comment was pushing the line a bit and could be offensive.

    I actually am not so sure you can read, or get jokes. You have obviously read the entire thread. Could you do me a favor and quote my posts where I said I didn't tip? Maybe I am sleep posting, and dunno what the heck is going on.

    I am sorry if I mis-spoke regarding the tipping. It was this original post, along with some comments in others, that seemed to heavily imply you didn't tip in regards to mousekeeping. Which either way isn't my problem. Once again, I apologize if I read it wrong and mis-spoke, but the implication was there.

    You are right and I am sorry for the confusion. Your avatar pictures are very similar and I was getting the two confused. :banghead:

    I keep getting you confused with another poster who has the same avatar as well. It's easy to do. :)

    Xdan can be...um...spirited....but in this instance he's actually being calm.lol.

    I think there was only 2 people in this thread who said they don't tip.. maybe they were absent during etiquette class in school..
    I'm hoping ignorance is a better excuse than just downright meanness.

    Poll needs a "Housekeeping doesn't get tips"

    Answering the poll is kind of throwing it to the wind unless you can get honest answers from Disney on
    - if they pool tips
    - housekeeper rotation

    For what you pay for a room at the Grand Flo you should get new towels daily!! The Grand Flo provides more than excellent service to their guests.
