Default Who else was afraid they wouldn't get the deposit back?

I was.

I kinda flooded my room.

Saturday morning I woke up at the crack of 10, and started the shower. It was still pointing up a bit since I'm a tall guy and was hitting my pants...which were covered in the ocean, and hanging on the back wall.

After the shower started, I wanted to watch some TV and sat there for about 15~20 minutes.

Got up to get in the shower and found a nice 1/2" of water on EVERYTHING that was tile. I was afraid it had seeped out into the hallway, but they apparently thought about morons like me when making it and have about a 3/4" lip between the tile and the carpet on the outside.

At this point I'm thinking OH CRAP, I need to get all of this off the floor and figure out where it went. Start grabbing towels and throwing them down. Ok...that worked well, until I realized there was water in the closet to.

Guess what, not only were the bath robes fashionable, they're also very absorbant, threw one down in the closet and sopped up the mess. Finished my shower(which, by the way, was somewhat clogged and would fill the tub with water as I was showering) and just threw all the sopping towels/robe into the tub full of water...'cuz I didn't want them to drip anywhere else.

That and I left the ironing board set up upside down in the middle of the room because I couldn't for the life of me figure it out. Yeah, the guy who takes apart Scions was bested by an ironing board...how sad.

So yeah, anyone else afraid they weren't getting the $$$ back? I know I did...because it's back already

You should be getting you deposit back regardless. The leak wasn't caused by you....I hope. Did you leave your card number at the front desk??? The only time they will charge you is when you physically damage the room...i.e. hole on the wall, damaged furniture, taken anything from the room at check out or stained the sheets.

If they do charge you, you may do a charge dispute with your credit card company and 95% of the time you will get reimbursed. Good luck....

And the water was spraying off them, out the side of the shower curtain, onto the floor

Yeah, you're really domestic buddy. Good thing you found Kelly.

Everybody else got drunk and broke something out and about in Miami. Chris is sober in his room and gets his ACE kicked by an ironing board. Yeah.

I'm afraid that the hotel will charge me for the 2 matresses and a couple of chairs I've thrown out of the balcony. That's what happened if you've had 15 mojitos and 5 shots of patron.
