    Expedia rates the honesty of hotel guestes by country and the results are pretty interesting.

    1. Demark
    15. Japan
    23. China & U.S. tie
    (Although in China you better bolt down the lamps and artwork it appears.)

    So who's more honest, the people who resoponed to the survey and admitted to stealing hotel property or the people who lied in their response to the survery?

    Interesting. I live in Orlando, and saw a Cadillac SUV/Wagon with a giant sign in the back window on my way to work this morning. When I got up close enough, I saw that it read "We are tourists visiting from Denmark". I've never seen anything like that before in all my travels.

    Maybe the sign in the window was a decoy and the SUV is actually full of hotel lamps, tvs and plumbing fixtures....:D

    "Please rob us" would have been shorter.

    Yeah, that sign translates to "We definitely don't have a gun" in Danish.

    Surprised to see Denmark and Norway at 1 and 3, but Sweden way down at 25.

    More marks are headed your way. Dutch Antilles is adding flights to MCO.

    So those magazines are not meant to be taken (if they are interesting)?

    Most of the time I just move them aside to free up desk/counter space, but there have been a few cases where I started reading one, and when I wasn't done upon checkout I took it with me. I always assumed they are like the apples...

    I'm surprised Japan isn't higher up on the list, even number one.

    So that's why that's why that Super 8 by the airport bolts the TV remote to the night stand.
