The Mystery of the Three Hotel Towels

There is a mystery abound in hotels around the world that I have been trying to figure out for some time. It's not why they put the little triangles on the toilet paper or why they always make the little rose bloom on top of the tissue box when all you are going to do is take it off anyhow, the mystery is much more hmmmm mystifying.......

Why three towels???

I, for the life of me, cannot figure out why hotels leave you three towels. Sometimes a person showers at night or after the gym and then in the morning, that is two, and then you are left with the extra towel. Then, if there are two of you in the room, and you both use one towel at night then one of you is left with the soggy towel in the morning which no one wants. Three is too many for 1 person and not enough for 2 people so why three towels???

For those hoteliers out there, consider throwing in another towel. The one clean towel left on the rack when I am traveling alone is a source of irritation but not nearly as bad as when I have to fight with my better half over who is going to get stuck with the soggy towel in the morning. End this mystery now so there can be harmony in hotel world again.
