Some of us, however, take it a step further. If your big suitcase allows it, that white, fluffy robe looks very enticing.

So when local singer Glo Zanayi (@glo_zanayi) shared a tongue-in-cheek tweet about helping herself to some of the hotel’s more luxurious items, it definitely got tongues wagging and others fessed up to what they take after a hotel stay.

Taking to Twitter, Zanayi shared: “I hate hotel duvets. They are so thick, i can’t close my suitcase.”

The hilarious post gained more than 12K retweets and 160K likes, but it was the comments that really drew the rest of the crowd in.

Of course there were a few that didn’t quite get the joke. One tweep wrote: “Stealing from a hotel is beyond disgusting, u ain't only ruining someone’s business but also disgracing urself; Remember karma never forgets. If u lodge into a hotel, act respectfully & leave, u can take toiletries such as soap, toilet tissue, paste etc if u wish but that's it.”

Another admitted to stealing hotel towels and stacking them up.

One online user went full confession mode and revealed that they took matters into their own hands after the hotel refused to reimburse them for a full night’s stay.
