Alegría del elefante toalla: la industria de la hospitalidad ama y odia

En muchos sentidos, nuestra relación con la industria hotelera es como un romance incipiente. A veces, hace algunos movimientos suaves, todo hace clic y caminamos de la mano hacia la puesta de sol. Pero con la misma frecuencia, sus torpes avances nos dejan sintiéndonos baratos, avergonzados y más que un poco preocupados por una erupción con picazón. Entonces, en el interés de ver esta relación a través de sus dolores de crecimiento, Aquí hay algunos indicios sobre lo que nos gustaría ver más y menos. Comparta sus amores y odios en el cuadro de comentarios a continuación. Nos encanta el taxista del aeropuerto que señala que los aeropuertos extranjeros pueden ser lugares intimidantes. La humedad cuelga en el aire, los olores cuelgan en los baños y los bigotes cuelgan de los rostros de los funcionarios de aduanas. Todos estos pueden dejar al viajero agotado sintiéndose desorientado. Entonces, cuando salimos a un vestíbulo lleno de cientos de revendedores aulladores, no hay nada más reconfortante que ver un pequeño letrero de cartón con nuestro nombre mal escrito. Este es nuestro boleto a través del caos. Instantáneamente, tenemos un amigo y un guía para llevarnos a través de las primeras horas, para llevarnos a un vehículo con aire acondicionado y navegar por las carreteras llenas de baches que se encuentran entre nosotros y nuestro hotel. Y si no somos demasiado exigentes con el lugar donde nos hospedamos, No hay necesidad de reservar con anticipación para aprovechar este servicio. Pocos conductores hablan nuestro idioma y estarán tan aburridos de esperar.Aceptarán felizmente nuestra afirmación de ser "Goerge Cloney". Clooney puede encontrar su propio camino a la ciudad. MÁS: ¿Qué ciudad tiene los mejores taxis del mundo? Odiamos la bienvenida a las bebesPorque, después de haber viajado al otro lado del mundo en un avión de pasajeros estrecho y sin aire, lo último que queremos al llegar a nuestro El resort es un vaso de ponche azucarado para meternos en el agujero cubierto de piel que solíamos llamar a nuestra boca. Tal vez el personal del hotel piense que los huéspedes calientes, pegajosos e incómodos necesitan calor, pegajoso e incómodo Bebidas. Pero, ¿qué pasa con una taza de té o café recién hecha o una jarra de cerveza restauradora? De lo contrario, un cubo de agua fría funcionaría. Nos encantan los chocolates de almohada Cuter y más práctico que una pizza de almohada. Vladimir Rys/Bongarts/Getty ImagesHay una gloriosa falta de lógica en el hábito del hotel de colocar chocolates en las almohadas. Cuando nos hemos cepillado los dientes para estar listos para una siesta, ¿por qué necesitamos un bocado de azúcar? Pero para cualquiera que disfrute de la alegría de una nueva habitación de hotel (trampolín en camas, minibares asaltados, revolcarse en albornoces), los chocolates de almohada sirven para realzar esos placeres infantiles. Sin embargo, lo hacen Presenta un peligro para aquellos que están demasiado agotados para detectarlos. Aunque probablemente hay hoteles en algún lugar que se adaptan deliberadamente a esto, la mayoría de los huéspedes no disfrutarán despertarse para encontrar una mancha de sustancia visón marrón cálida deslizándose por sus mejillas. MÁS: Conmovedor,Hilarante: la mayoría de las extrañas solicitudes de huéspedes de hotel Odiamos a los botones que transportan nuestro luggageHemos rebotado nuestra maleta a 6 millones de pasos de nuestro apartamento. Hemos tirado de todos los músculos de la parte superior del cuerpo levantándolo en los casilleros superiores. Hemos sobrevivido a turbas enojadas empeñadas en vengar a la anciana a la que hospitalizamos con un descuido de nuestra mochila. Entonces, ¿por qué ahora necesitamos darle propina a alguien para que lleve nuestras maletas los últimos 20 metros? Claro, apreciamos que algunas personas frágiles o perezosas necesiten una mano amiga con su equipaje. Pero míranos: somos seres humanos normales, hemos logrado llegar tan lejos y podemos arreglárnoslas por nuestra cuenta. Es una posibilidad remota,Pero probablemente también podamos descubrir cómo encender las luces en nuestra habitación, tirar el inodoro y poner el billete de gran denominación, que es inevitablemente el único efectivo que tenemos en nosotros en este momento, para un uso mucho mejor. Nos encantan los elefantes de toalla "Toalla elefante" Suena como un eufemismo para un encuentro inesperado en la sala de vapor de los hombres, pero en realidad describe una forma de origami desplegado por algunos hoteles. Esto implica doblar una toalla de mano y baño para producir un paquidermo lindo y esponjoso, repleto de tronco, Orejas y piernas. Las toallas han estado durante mucho tiempo en la primera línea de la reducción de costos de los hoteles, generalmente en la forma de esos avisos ambientales que lo instan a reutilizarlos tanto como sea posible, por lo que es bueno ver un poco de atención que se les prodiga por una vez. Solo recuerde desplegarlos antes de usarlos. Puede haber pocas cosas más angustiosas para las camareras de hotel que ver un elefante húmedo en la esquina del baño, con el tronco caído avergonzado. MÁS: 15 hoteles extravagantes en todo el mundo Odiamos la música de los hoteles Saxofones enlatados: la mejor manera de arruinar un espacio pacífico. JANEK SKARZYNSKI/AFP/Getty ImagesHay dos tipos de jazz, y ambos son execrables. Tampoco más que cuando están rezumando a través del sistema de altavoces de un hotel. Como si no fuera lo suficientemente malo como para sofocarnos con un saxofón suave cada vez que entramos en un ascensor, muchos hoteles también nos persiguen por sus pasillos a través de altavoces incrustados en el techo. En la guerra psicológica, La música a menudo se ataca a los objetivos las 24 horas del día para obligarlos a rendirse. Esto no funcionará si el enemigo ha pasado algo de tiempo en un hotel. Nos encanta el escritorio de conserjería Siempre sonriente, siempre genial, siempre listo para servir. Muchas de las responsabilidades del conserje están siendo reemplazadas por Internet, después de todo,Es difícil competir con los sitios web locales cuando se busca la mejor margarita con infusión de jalapeño de la ciudad. Pero es bueno saber que estos incondicionales del servicio todavía están presentes para esparcir las cenizas de nuestro perro en el mar y encontrarnos réplicas de tamaño natural de nosotros mismos hechos de chocolate en cualquier momento. No los estamos inventando. Haga clic aquí para obtener una lista de las extrañas solicitudes de los huéspedes del hotel. Odiamos las débiles señales de Wi-Fi Para la mayoría de las personas, una conexión a Internet es ahora tan esencial como tener agua de barril en el baño. Entonces, si va a incluirlo en el precio de nuestra habitación de hotel, asegúrese de darnos una señal fuerte e ininterrumpida. Si el agua se ralentiza o se corta cada dos minutos, los invitados enojados se sentirán voluntariamente a la recepción, desnudos, aparte de una toalla de baño. Para señalar con los dedos acusadores mojados al gerente. Dado que muchos viajeros de negocios aburridos también usan Internet mientras están envueltos en una toalla de baño, a todos les conviene asegurarse de que se mantengan en línea y sus dedos acusadores mojados se mantengan fuera de la recepción. MÁS: ¿Las calificaciones de estrellas del hotel ya significan algo? Odiamos las tarjetas magnéticas de deslizamiento poco confiables Las tarjetas de acceso magnéticas son más fáciles de llevar que las torpes llaves de esqueleto viejas y cuando nos olvidamos de devolverlas al momento de la caja son fáciles de tirar. Hurra. Pero pocas indignidades que nos ha impuesto la industria hotelera son como Agravante como regresar al hotel a las 11:30 de la noche después de las copas y la cena, cruzar el vestíbulo, tomar el ascensor hasta el piso 23, caminar por el pasillo pensando en nada más que ese baño en la habitación que tan desesperadamente necesitamos en este momento... Entonces no vemos esa pequeña luz verde tranquilizadora cuando deslizamos nuestra tarjeta de acceso. Espera,¿Lo hicimos bien? Inténtalo de nuevo. Intenta con el otro. Hazlo de nuevo. Al otro lado. Prueba el. .. Con el tiempo, lo único que queda por hacer es volver a la recepción para una "solución rápida" a un problema que aparece con mucha más frecuencia de lo que debería. MÁS: Grandes piscinas de hoteles en los Estados UnidosNos encantan los palos de pan gratis Quizás el amor es una palabra demasiado fuerte. Pero nos gustan mucho,Así que mantenlos viniendo mientras decidimos qué pedir. Sí, obviamente algunos están encontrando su camino en nuestros bolsillos para su consumo posterior, pero después del incidente del "elefante toalla" en Recepción y esa confusión de George Clooney con el taxi, Podría pasar un tiempo antes de que podamos escabullirnos de los botones y comernos los chocolates de nuestras almohadas. ¿Qué ama y odia su industria hotelera? Compártelos en el cuadro de comentarios a continuación. Publicado originalmente en agosto de 2012, actualizado en junio de 2014.

Is There a Benefit Or Harm in Letting a 3 Year Old Control Her Own Bedtime Routine?
Is There a Benefit Or Harm in Letting a 3 Year Old Control Her Own Bedtime Routine?
Children are generally able to handle much more freedom than modern parents give them credit for. Usually a bad result when you first try granting more freedom is due to a lack of practice, out of rebellion more than anything else. Just because a child wants control over her own body doesn't mean she won't tend to make similar choices to the ones you would make for her.My almost 5 year-old daughter inherited some of my night owl genes, so she chooses to stay up later, but that's okay because she can usually sleep as late as she needs. When she's ready, she goes to sleep completely without complaint. My 10 year-old daughter who has approximately the mental capacity of a 3 year-old due to her cerebral palsy, actually comes and tells us she's ready for bed.My 7 year-old son is somewhat different. His impulses drive him to stay up all night if we don't intervene, despite how tired he gets, so we tend to be more authoritarian with him. We don't like to do that, but find it necessary due to reasons I'll detail later.Children have difficulties with freedom in two main areas:The first reason is why I consider the job of a parent to be mostly converting long term consequences into short term ones. Kids need hygiene of their bodies and their environment. They need a certain amount of sleep in order to be healthy and happy. However, there's no obvious short term benefit to attending to those needs.The way we handled those long term needs while still giving our kids as much freedom as possible is we made a list (with pictures) of all the things that need to be part of their bedtime routine, but we let them choose the order it's done, and give them wide leeway in how long it takes.If your daughter still needs help with part of her bedtime routine, like brushing her hair, it's okay to impose more restrictions on those parts, because those parts affect you too. Children often realize intuitively, and others can be taught, that involving others necessitates some compromises. In other words, it's easier for them to accept some loss of control in those areas.We keep the time reasonable with a consequence. After their bedtime routine, we have a family quiet time where we have a religious message and a family prayer, then if there's time we watch something funny like AFV. The kids really enjoy all of it. If they take too long with their bedtime routine, then they miss out on part or all of that family time.The reason I feel comfortable imposing a consequence like that is because of the second difficulty with freedom. Making other people wait for family time is a choice that affects other people. Not letting parents have some quiet time after the kids' bedtime is a choice that affects other people, which is why I insist my daughter leave us alone after bedtime even though I don't insist she go to sleep right away.That's also the reason we make my son actually lie down and try to sleep even when we don't force the other kids. The extremity of what he would choose for himself throws off the entire family's schedule the next day, and the resultant grumpiness throws off the entire family's mood the next day. We can handle a child sleeping an hour longer. We can't handle a hyperactive child being tired all day. If he could handle staying up all night without affecting the rest of the family, we would let him do it.A lot of families have more strict morning routines than we do. They have to be to school or work at a certain time. That pretty much necessitates everyone going to bed at a certain time. That's an okay freedom to restrict on your children, because their choice affects others. It also happens to restrict the adults' freedom, but for some reason a lot of parents don't think of it that way. However, you can still negotiate some leeway, and find a way to say yes. "Okay, you can stay up for an hour if you don't interrupt my quiet time, and if you can show me it won't be any more difficult to get you ready to leave in the morning." One of two things will happen: you will prove them wrong or they will prove you wrong. If you prove them wrong, they'll usually be much more willing to abide by the rules, which is worth the price of one or two difficult mornings. If they prove you wrong, you've both learned something wonderful and will be happier for it.You asked about the benefit of giving a 3 year-old more control over her bedtime routine. The benefit is people are much more willing to do things they have more autonomy over. You'll have fewer power struggles and still be getting most of what you want. Also, I haven't parented teens yet, but I've heard from others that giving their children more freedom earlier eased the teen power struggles later on. Ironically, the best way to control children is often trusting them to control themselves.I'm a bit exhausted getting my 3 year old daughter through the evening. Getting home, washing hands, sitting at the dinner table, eating dinner, eating fruit, taking a bath, towel drying, drying hair, brushing teeth, flossing, reading stories, going to bed.Every step is like pulling teeth and she is wandering and wants to do something else.Tonight I basically just decided to (1) post this question and (2) let her tell me when she is ready to do the steps (we're already done with dinner.)Is there harm in letting her do this? I asked her to let me know when she wants to do the steps in our nightly routine.
Creativity Soars at UIW Show
Creativity Soars at UIW Show
Monday's Cutting Edge Fiesta Fashion Show - the 33rd presented by graduating design students at the - brought a much-needed edge back to the crowd-pleasing show.Not that the annual show, including this one, had been lacking in focused collections executed with exquisite dressmaking (and better fabrics) and on-trend and wearable designs. But playing it too safe in the past had edged out the show's rebellious thinking.At this year's show at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter downtown, design experimentation ruled the runway. And the record 920 guests enthusiastically approved - even though most women wouldn't dare jump into a straight-jacket dress with a 102-inch back zipper or another with a super-sized bow the dimensions of a bath towel, albeit still elegant.The audience loved the ideas that flowed on the catwalk from the young talent trying their designer wings. They soared with creativity beyond their obvious pattern-making and sewing skills. After all, dressmaking is not designing. A designer must have ideas, and this show was bountiful.There was Chastity Taylor's jumbo leather spikes on a form-fitting coat that was an ode to her favorite designer ; a McQueen tattoo on her arm proved it.There were 's mammoth-sized couture bows on chic bridesmaid dresses that could easily double for the cocktail hour. Shatorria Whitener deconstructed women's tuxedos; a jacket brilliantly worked with blue leather and blue leather stripes down graceful trousers. created gold voluminous wrapped shorts and daring Ikat-print garments inspired by 's Queen of the Nile look in "Cleopatra."Often, a surplus of such edginess can be problematic with design concepts bordering on a costume fit for Halloween. But that wasn't the case at this year's show from the students at UIW's .So appealing were the looks presented by the nine students including Courtney Casares, , Celia Alecozay, and that many garments were sold after the show outside the ballroom. (Miss bought a $325 teal handkerchief linen halter dress with a petal-shaped skirt from Alecozay, who managed an on-the-spot fitting.)Past Cutting Edge graduate Petrecia Falcon, 54, who will present a collection at Los Angeles' Fashion Week in the fall, put it best, quoting a UIW professor who told her: "If you design it, someone will buy it."Along with the edgier offerings, the students also presented many current trends: the high-low hemline, fabric mash-ups, color-blocking, pleating and cutouts on skirts and corsets. They worked with beautiful silks, chiffons, wool, lace and leather - and showed off superb craftsmanship. Their efforts paid off, in particular for the award winners in design and construction.Pugh's wedding party collection swept the competition with three awards: first place in design and construction and best of show. She also won a $1,500 scholarship. She presented a range of silhouettes from sleek, long gowns to shorter ones. Her finale was her favorite: an ivory strapless sweetheart neckline wedding gown with a drop waist and elaborate rose-embroidered train accented with faux pearls.Backstage she said her collection was inspired by the gowns created by the Marchesa team of and ."I love the exaggerated feel of the bows and the soft architectural detailing of the roses," she said of her work. "Each garment has my handiwork on it."Since the sixth grade, Pugh has been cutting up shirts and reinventing them with embellishments. "I would add all sorts of stuff to them, all by hand."In all, she spent about $1,500 on her collection. She said the school gave each student $500 to get started. She and the other students began working on their collections last April: sketching, pattern making, draping and then going through fittings created with muslin. From that came the final eight garments that each student sent down the catwalk.Of her triple-award sweep, she said "Those long nights paid off."Taking second place in construction was Taylor, who also took second in design. Third place in construction went to Whitener and third place in design was awarded to Yamamoto.A special runway presentation kicked off the luncheon event with knitwear from Chinese garment makers that had selected San Antonio for its North American sales office, . Students designed several garments - a below-the-knee cascading sweater, a color blocked off-the-shoulder dress, a floor-length knit coat accented with leather and more - that Shantex manufactured.
Info on Leopard Geckos - Top Five Substrates to Use in Your Enclosure
Info on Leopard Geckos - Top Five Substrates to Use in Your Enclosure
Owning a pet can be a rewarding experience. If you are the proud owner of a Leopard gecko, then you must know about the great debate about deciding which is the appropriate substrate to use in your Leo's cage. There is no clear cut answer to this question, and is mostly based on personal choice. Here are my list of the "TOP FIVE" acceptable substrates.5. Unprinted NewspaperUnprinted newspaper is a great choice as a substrate for your gecko's cage. The texture of newspaper makes it more absorbent than other types of paper. This makes cleaning your Leo's cage just that much easier! Can you use regular newspaper? You could, but I wouldn't recommend it because of the ink. The ink on printed newspaper will quickly transfer to your pet's feet and stomach causing unnecessary irritation and dry skin. Where can you get unprinted newspaper? This can usually be purchased rather cheaply as end rolls from your local newspaper.4. Bath TowelIf you are a "GREEN" person, this will be your best choice in a substrate. Bath towels can be purchased very inexpensively at stores like Target or WalMart. Not only are they inexpensive, they can be washed and then re-used to save you money. Keep these two things in mind when using a kitchen or bath towel. First, make sure it is tightly knitted so that your Leopard gecko doesn't get its mouth caught in the fibers. Second, make sure you use a very little detergent, if any, when washing the towels so not to irritate the skin of your gecko.3. Vinyl TileCheap, durable, and easy to clean are the three words that best describe this possible substrate. Another benefit of using a vinyl tile is you ability to cut them to size to fit your tank (does it get any better)? Those aren't the only cool reasons to use vinyl tiles. Just think about all the decorating possibilities with the different colors and types of tiles available.The only negative about using vinyl tiles is the glue. You are going to want to find tiles that do not have any glue already applied to the back because if you use an under tank heater, the heated glue will release toxic fumes which could be deadly for your pet.2. Reptile CarpetThis is Astro Turf for your gecko! Specifically designed for reptiles, this is a great product to use. Easy to clean and comes in a variety of sizes are some of its benefits. The only drawbacks of this product are its price because it is more expensive than the other options, and safety. You just have to watch out and make sure your Leo isn't getting its' mouth stuck on the carpet fibers just like the towel.1. Slate TilesThis is my favorite substrate. Hard, natural, and has thermal mass. Using slate tiles as a substrate is a more natural material that would be found in its native environment. I like slate because I can have them cut to the size of my tank but also that they absorb heat. My geckos love to lie on them to stay warm. Another benefit is the can also be used to create hides and other creative things for your Leo to play one.

New! Creative Ideas on Choosing Your Window Covering Style
New! Creative Ideas on Choosing Your Window Covering Style
Window coverings have a process on how you should choose your window curtains and drapes. You have three basic choices to decide from on what window treatment is best for your homes decor. You first have to decide whether you want informal or formal window coverings? Secondly unlined or lined? And thirdly the style and type of heading desired. After you have decided on the type of window treatment you are looking for you can start to finalize the design. Window coverings are influenced by several elements, which include the function of the space, the style of the architecture of the home, and the window treatment preferences of the homeowner. The resulting factor is the same window design can be treated very differently depending on the person's taste. Imagine a dining room that has a bay window. This type of window style is usually a multi layered floor length window treatment - basically it's a formal window covering. If your taste is a more casual laid-back style you may introduce an informal appearance of café curtains with some sill length and some tied back side panels.What is a full formal window treatment? A formal window covering usually will have two or three layers. The first layer may be the casement curtain and will be installed within your Windows trim area. Usually you would use a sheer, solid or maybe a lace panel that will lay straight or either gathered at the top. Over draperies usually called just draperies will be your second layer. Generally they will cover the trim and window and if there is room left stretched further to each side or even the area that is above your window. Optionally the third layer of your full formal window treatment will be a valance this is also known as pelnet that horizontally runs across the top of your window and will cover the curtain or drapery heading. Another piece of the formal window treatment is a hard valance, also known as a lanbre-quin or a cornice. It is normally made with wood, which is then covered with upholstery or some fabric. To some people by not using the third treatment it will appear like the window covering is unfinished but in all sense this depends on the taste and style that you are trying to obtain. By using heavy but curious fabrics which would include brocades, Tapestries, silks, Damasks and velvet you will enhance the prestige of the formal treatment. The downside of these fabrics is that they will require cleaning from professionals every couple of years. What is an Informal window treatment?An informal window treatment can consist of one or two basic layers or you may decide on having nothing at all. If you have a great window location with privacy a beautiful window can look great even without a dressing especially if you have a great view. Sometimes just some basic casement curtains look great for a casual room. If you need to cover only the lower half of the window a Café curtain can offer you privacy and not block the light. Fabrics that are used for the informal look consist of chitz, ticking, linen, muslin and gingham. A benefit to the informal window coverings over the formal window coverings is that most of these are washable and easy to take care of. Window drapes and curtain linings Depending whether you have a formal or informal curtain or drape covering it will often decide if your window treatment will be lined. Factors will include the amount of natural light you want in your room and the length of time you expect the arrangement will last. Unlined curtains diffuse daylight but won't exclude it. Being the simplest form for your window covering it is still very effective by itself as a window under treatment. The unlined treatment doesn't have the extra thickness of a lining and will stack lightly back. A good choice is to use a fabric that looks attractive from both sides so there will not be a right or wrong side for the inside or outside of your window covering. Classic choices for unlined treatments would consist of lace, mobile, Muslim and sheers that are made out of cotton or silk organza. You may even have textured fabrics that have open weaves; an unlined curtain will filter the light beautifully and give you some privacy in the evening when the lamp is on. Try consolidating sheers with window blinds and shades. Unlined curtain drawbacks are the damage from the sunlight on the window treatment because there is no lining for your window fabric for protection it will deteriorate rapidly. Lined curtains and drapes Lined curtains and drapes have more body, which will give you softer and deeper folds and improve the window treatment appearance. The lining will block sunlight and protect the window fabric from fading. A lining also preserves the color and increases your privacy and will reduce noise from outside. Look for linings that are treated to resist sun damage and rot, once the lining becomes deteriorated you can just realign it or just hang the window covering without the lining on. The rule of thumb is that if you line one curtain in the room do all the rest the same so they will match, Usually the lining fabric will be off-white or white although you can get colored linings you should know that this will affect the hue of the window covering when light passes through it especially in a lightweight curtain fabric get samples and test them together for a color change.

Luxury Bedding - Tips on Shopping for the Best Quality Bed Linens
Buying good quality Bed LinenWe all want to get quality for the money we pay for our bed linen and bedding accessories but how do we know what to look for. Here are some tips to guide you in finding good products for your bed that will be both stylish and long lasting from your on-line store.Thread countWhat is thread count?Thread count relates to the number of threads running horizontally and vertically in one square inch of fabric. You will probably find that most stores have product ranges with thread counts from 180 to 320 and in general the higher the number thread count the better quality product you will be getting. On high thread counts you would feel the difference in the softness of the fabric and it will have a better visual appearance. According to Consumer Reports cotton and fabrics blended with cotton and a thread count of 180 to 200 provide better wear and tear and give more comfort to the owner. Therefore you could pay a little extra for a higher thread count but it will last you much longer and mostly likely stand up to more use than a lower thread count fabrics.Egyptian CottonMany of us have heard of Egyptian cotton and associate this with quality in bedding and clothing, but what does this actually mean? Cotton has been farmed and grown along the Nile in Egypt for a very long time and is a big part of the Egyptian industry. The cotton produced is a long staple cotton which in turn produces the exceptional fine and soft Egyptian cotton fabric. It is used to make very fine linen and luxurious fabrics very often used in bedding and sheeting. The higher percentage (%) Egyptian cotton in the fabric the better quality product you will be getting.

Gael Monfils Get Unofficial Towel During Rafa Nadal Match ...
Gael Monfils Get Unofficial Towel During Rafa Nadal Match ...
From the exact order he towels himself down after each point to how his water bottles are placed on the sidelines, Rafael Nadal is famous for his rituals on the tennis court.But it was his French opponent Gael Monfils who drew attention on Monday night with a bizarre display of his own.After going to a quick break of serve down at 2-0 in the first set, Monfils made his way over to the umpire's chair where he requested a new set of towels.Not just any towels, however, he requested a set of non-regulation white bath towels, and asked the ball boy to have them ready by the end of the next service game.It is not clear why Monfils had a problem with the game towels, though 7 commentator Lleyton Hewitt suggested several possibly explanations.'Sometimes players prefer to use the white towel when they're out there,' he said.'Sometimes the fluff from the new tournament towels comes off.'Jim Courier added that the tournament towels often do not absorb sweat very well, which makes sense, considering the high humidity in Melbourne at the time.Temperatures had reached 36C in the city during the day, but as night fell and rain was forecast, humidity jumped above 80 per cent.The rain threat also forced tournament bosses to close the roof, further upping the temperature inside the arena.Monfils was not the only one suffering in the heat - Nadal was also dripping with sweat from the first game on, with Twitter users describing him as 'leaking like a tap.'In fact the sweat issue became so bad at one point that one of the ball boys had to towel it off the line close to where he was serving.To the Spaniard's credit, he did acknowledge the volunteer's effort, patting them on the back as they completed the thankless task.Monfils also received his request of white bath towels, but they did not appear to help him, as he lost the first set 6-3, having failed to recover from the early break.The second set went the same way, with Nadal triumphing 6-3, before a comeback by Monfils in the third, which went to him 6-4.He also threatened to take the fourth, breaking Nadal earlier on, but the former world number one battled back to claim it 6-4.Nadal will now play No. 3 seed Milos Raonic, who he lost to in Brisbane earlier this month, in the quarterfinal.
