While vacationing in the caribbean I put a substantial amount of cash in the empty ice bucket up in the cupboard of our cottage, about the 5th day of the trip I was walking back from the beach and could see the maid in the room and all the cash laying on the table. I stopped and watched from a distance. Soon she dumped water out of the ice bucket dried it put the cash back and set it back in the cupboard. I walked away and came back later. I sure wasn't overwhelmed at the sanitation using our ice bucket as a cleaning pail but I was laughing at what a dumb#ss I was leaving all that cash in such a pathetic hiding spot and the maid had obviously had to pull it out of the bucket everyday and then put it back again.
