A WOMAN has complained about “rude and selfish” hotel guests getting up early to block sunbeds with their towels.
Every summer, people get up first thing in the morning to secure the best spot by the pool, and some even queue up to enjoy the pleasure.
One person who is not in favor, however, is Tiktokerin Denise (@blondesbydenise), who called it “annoying and inconsiderate.”
In a video She shared footage from her vacation showing plenty of sunbeds with towels on them, with no one using them.
Denise guessed that the towels had been there since the first morning, maybe as early as four o’clock.
She said: “People are so rude and selfish! I think I might start a series about selfish people.”
“My biggest frustration is when people come to the pool at 4am and put their towels over the chairs so no one else can sit and they’re still not there.
“So annoying and inconsiderate.”
The video has been viewed more than 58,000 times and many people agree with Denise.
One wrote: “I agree! You cannot reserve unless you stay.”
Others advised her to only use the beds when no one else was sitting on them anyway.
One of them said, “I’ll peel them off and throw them aside.”
A second added: “I’m postponing them. I’m sorry, not sorry.”
Reserving sunbeds is something of hate for many people, including etiquette experts who say it shouldn’t be done.
One of them, Katarina, who shares her expert opinion on manners on TikTok at @katarina.etiquette, says people should be less selfish and more considerate of other hotel guests.
In a videoShe said: “If you’re staying in a hotel, don’t block the sunbeds if you don’t want to stay there. This is disrespectful to other guests.”
“Unless the hotel has a reservation system, only use the sunbeds if you’re staying by the pool.”
Meanwhile, staff at a resort removed towels after tourists occupied prime spots without actually using the pool.
And in 2021, a “sunbed eater” caused a stir after brazenly throwing away water bottles and towels at 7am to “reserve six sunbeds”.
