Today, while working the graveyard shift at my hotel, it felt a little chilly, so I grabbed a blanket out of the box we usually store old blankets in. 20 minutes later, the live-in maintenance man casually remarked that those blankets are all infected with bed-bugs. FML

They should've marked the box! You should definitely go take a shower and wash your clothes in hot water before it gets any worse.

You'd think your hotel would throw those out, sentimental I guess?

Work is a bITCH

It really bites. If it felt a little nippy in your workplace before, one can only how you must be ticked off now. I guess now you have to chill, and try not to think of all all those little buggers lest it make your skin crawl, OP.

Pleo proof read!

Haha that has to suck

that would of really bugged me ;)

I'm pretty sure the whole place is infested anyway. Bedbugs have been known to crawl in and out of spaces as tiny as light switches. Having the blanket directly on is definitely gross, but who thought putting them in a box would do the trick?

Burn everything you own. Everything. o_O

I want to know the name of the place do I don't stay there

Someone really should have put a sign on that box with a warning or put them in a separate box :L sorry OP, that really sucks.

Or had them bagged and cleaned properly in the first place. Gross!

Or maybe they were under attack by PETA... "You can't throw out those bed bugs! They're animals too! They have feeeeelings!"

Or simply saving money not to buy new ones..

How are they saving money? It says he got it out a box for old blankets, if they're in a seperate box than the other blankets then they're probably not being used

But they can probably be disinfected, cleaned, and then put back into use. They may just be saving them up because it's cheaper to disinfect them in batches.

27 Letting blankets that bed bugs are in sit around a hotel is stupid, period. It's not like they'll stay in the box with those blankets. They could end up migrating somewhere in the hotel, and then it is not just a few blankets to disinfect, it's an entire hotel to exterminate. Letting them accrue and cleaning them in batches would only lead to the possibility of much larger expenses later on.

Im before " bugging"puns

Man that didn't make any sense...you should probably just bug out now...

come on #9, don't let #7's comment crawl under your skin, just ignore it if it bugs you.

I just thought he was being a bugger is all

Did that bug you out?

"Good night, sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite!"

Good night, sleep tight, I hope the bed bugs don't bite! I'm really sorry OP. They should've labelled the thing.

Who keeps sheets covered in bed bugs? Smh. :( I feel sorry for you Op

..ones that are in a box to be sent off to decontamination?? **Facepalm**

You can decontaminate them by putting them through the dryer. Why not do that immediately?

obviously no one understands how hard it is to get rid of bed bugs... its not just the sheets, its EVERYWHERE!
