No Smoking

So, I'm going through my hotel room last night. I open a nightstand drawer, and what do I find? I find a cigarette ash tray, with a label on the bottom of said ash tray reading "This is a non-smoking room. Thank you for your cooperation." So, why provide the ash tray in the first place? That's kind of like placing a big cardboard sign on the bed that reads "This is a non-sleeping room. Thank you for your cooperation."

Never mind me. Carry on.

That is odd. Is there a balcony or something? Like maybe you can smoke out there but not inside?

No balcony or anything. I suppose it's possible that the room is SOMETIMES a smoking room and SOMETIMES not, but even then it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It's almost like it's defeatist thinking on the part of the hotel, like they're saying "Well, we know you're going to smoke anyway, so here's an ash tray; thanks for not ashing on the floor."

Not that I smoke, but if I did, and I ended up in a non-smoking room, I'd probably ash on the floor, just out of defiance.

I have slept in more than a few "non-smoking" rooms that only became non-smoking when they removed the ashtray moments before our arrival.

Ryan, its for deseeding your weed. Did you check the Gideon's Bible to make sure no one hollowed it out to stash a recording device or weapon in there? I did last week and was saddened to find that it was just filled with words.
