We’ve all had unpleasant experiences in hotels. From the Wi-Fi being down, to the key card not working, to the walls being just a bit too thin, hotels are places where you know something is often going to go wrong.
The U.K. Daily Mail reported that one hotel guest’s unpleasant experience involved a giant rat trying to crawl up through the toilet bowl.
The guest, who was not named, heard an odd scratching noise coming from the toilet so he took a look — and found a rat, stuck in the plumbing. Hotel staff had to pull the toilet from the floor in an attempt to extract the animal from his disgusting new home.
Someone claiming to be a relative of the guest posted the photo on the popular site Reddit, which is home to all manner of disturbing photos and discussions.
“This was at a hotel my uncle was staying at,” the user wrote. “In his hotel room he heard scratching in his bathroom. I would check out immediately! If it happened once, it could happen again.”
Neither the hotel, nor the city that this happened in, were named in the post. Wherever it was, hopefully the guest got his money back.
Having a rat crawl up your toilet is probably one of the most disgusting and disturbing things that could happen to you in a hotel.
