      I honestly aggree. I arranged my shit quite well, started working late, worked till it’s late. It is how I like it, I get really productive at ~15:00 till ~19:00. Now my children go to school (therefore I have to get up early) and they banned working after 18:00 at my company (thanks labour union, I get what you wanted to do, but you screwed me). My productivity dropped so much it stresses me out and I am constantly tired, because I don’t sleep enough.

        Same - I’ve basically forced my employer to de facto let me work whenever I want.

        I mean, they just like the output they get and with literally no drawbacks, so it’s especially shitty knowing that I’ve basically been fighting some … traditions?

        Its literally just full on discrimination (as classification I mean), it’s just too much of a dispersed problem to gain attention & we are all brainwashed (starring late is considered lazy yet finishing early isn’t).

    You know another way you’re not allowed to be lazy on vacation?

    If you get an AirBnB, you have to clean the place before you leave.

    Hotels have cleaners who clean your room so you can leave it a mess. I shouldn’t have to do chores when I’m on vacation. One of many reasons I prefer hotels.

      Only reason I use an AirBNB is if it’s a unique location where there are no hotels (like a cabin in the woods on a river or something) but I agree, I only book ones that don’t have a ridiculous checkout policy.

      I also hate that private equity has taken over towns with short term rentals making the rest of us pay more in rent.

        We once used it back when it really was just individual people with extra places renting them out short-term when we stayed in New York, but that was like 2009. And then my mom insisted on paying for one when she went with me to the Mayo Clinic earlier this year, but at least it was just someone renting out the bottom half of the duplex they owned and not a corporation… but yeah, unless there’s just not another good option, I’m not doing AirBnB when it’s my choice.

    It’s because they don’t want to give out free food (but want to make it seem like they do want to give out free food), so they will make it available only when people are less likely to go for it.

        In the US several hotels will offer a “continental breakfast” included with the stay. I guess you could argue that it’s not really free, considering it’s factored into your stay at the hotel, but there is technically not a separate charge for it and it’s considered an “amenity”. I know that this is not necessarily common in other places, so I thought I would mention in case you were not aware.

          I’d say you’re correct except now it’s more “used to offer”. In Europe it’s usually included and it’s a good spread, in the US it was a decent spread, then cereal and processed muffins, and now it’s… A Starbucks Togo you have to pay for

    Our vacation days generally consist of stalking the area for good food and doing tourist-y things to fill the time between meals. My partner’s favorite thing to do during vacation downtime is to find more restaurants and cafes in the area for the next day, so hotel food is never a factor.

          Yes, but many big hotel chains have a buffet style breakfast that does not only include typical local food. For instance in France a local breakfast would be bread, croissant or other pastries, and a coffee, but you would also find scrambled eggs, bacon, cereal, etc.

          Smaller hotels will be more local though yes.
