    So after trying to drown myself in the pool for a little over an hour, I dragged myself out only to find that someone had made off with my towel. Instead of the tan cloth I left there was a decidely inferior mauve rag! Now I know the lighting wasn't good, almost dark, but on close inspection it was definately smaller, thinner and differently colored than mine.
    Okay my towel wasn't that great, and if I were to purloin towels, I wouldn't have choosen mine as there were definately superior specimens to choose from, but it was my means of drying off!

    I'm sure none of you fine gentlemen at RJ would ever dream of wandering off with someone else's property, let alone a towel, so just think of this as a friendly reminder, or a public service announcement: Please though, to further peace of mind and reduce your neighbors anxiety, return home with what you brought and not, no matter how temping, someone else's towel.

    Ew. No reflection on you personally, but why would anyone steal a towel? The owner of the towel could have ringworm or scabies or anything, and you couldn't possibly know. Oh dear, but that's vile

    Maybe he took it home to sniff, like men used to do with women's handkerchiefs.

    A few years ago, I grabbed a shower in the locker room and left my fresh shirt on the bench. When I came back, it was gone. I looked around the locker room and in the back row found a guy sitting on the bench wearing it. He just smiled at me. I said: "Can I have my shirt back?" He said: "Sure." I have no idea.

    I have showered in a place where my towel was purloined not once, but three times. From this I deduced that somewhere in the room was a perv who just wanted to see me walk up to the equipment cage naked, to get a new one. Big thrill.

    This happened to me two days ago. I was showering, and I saw another guy get out of the shower, walk over, and grab my towel and start drying off.

    "Excuse me, but what are you doing? That's my towel you're using."

    "Oh, I am?" he said. "I guess I just grabbed this one without taking mine out of my bag."

    He then dropped my towel on the floor and took his own on his bag. My towel was plain white. His towel was blue with a green pattern on it--what exactly the pattern was, I don't know, as I can't see terribly well without my glasses. But, still...how easy is it to mistake two such radically different looking towels?

    He may have been trying to cover himself with your scent or that of your laundry detergent. I always get excited when I smell all temperature Cheer.
