Everybody loves a freebie but some people seem to have taken the idea of what constitutes a “freebie” too far.

Kubheka’s admission sparked widespread shock which later led to a number of tweeps admitting to doing the same thing or something similar.

There are very few universal hotel etiquette rules but we’d imagine taking pillows has to be a no-no.

According to UK publication The Sun, items such as pillows, cushions and gowns are on the list of things guests are not allowed to take home. In the event that they go missing, hotels do bill guests for the missing items.
