Despite what you might have heard, my theory of the origin of the word "Europe" is that it is Celtic for "no washrags in hotel rooms."
Here we are, nearly a decade into the 21st century, and the U.S. and Europe are still not together on how to furnish a proper bathroom. Europeans just do not get the idea of hand rags. Some seasoned American travelers know to bring their own rags, but it’s time to address the problem. I propose a special meeting of the NATO nations to discuss a common list of bathroom requirements. As a concession to the Americans, after all, there are a lot of us who travel and with the exchange rate so bad, we have to pay more.
Standard wash rags will be required in every hotel room. Also, there must be fixed showers and not those useless handheld devices. In exchange, we Americans agree to waive our rights to use the bidets.
