  • One of my mission trips to Africa was to a rural church not too far from a small city with a couple of hotels. I was teaching soap-making from scratch, but one of the suggestions we made was that they try to make arrangements to collect the leftover itty-bitty bath soaps (yes, they use the same kind, even in Kenya) and melt them down into new bars. I don't know whether the suggestion was ever pursued.

    That would never fly here in the States, of course. I'd imagine FDA regulations prohibit it.

  • I stayed in hotel with a group this spring. Upon arriving, I wanted to freshen up in the bathroom after a long day of traveling before going to the next activity. I flipped on the light to the ever so tiny bathroom, and nothing. Fan? Nada. So we called up the front office and they sent a guy down to our room. He changed the lightbulb, and still nothing happened. He said he could fix it the next day, but the hotel insisted on moving us far away from our group on the other side of the building. That was ridiculous! We finally did end up staying in our own room, and they fixed it while we were our the next day like we suggested in the first place.

    Isn't it so true that the customer is always right?
