    That is a shame the motel didn't save and keep these for you. People leave things all the time in motel rooms and they should have a process to handle these things. I am sorry this happened to you.

    Most hotels do have a lost and found process of some sort - but even then things get miss placed. When I worked front desk the head house keeper would bring us the found stuff everyday in a bag with the room number on it, but if someone called about something we didn't have at the desk I would sometimes find it in the oddest places. On shelfs in the laundry, or supply rooms, on their lunch table, or under the folding table... I don't think there was ever any malicious intent, but we are all human, and good intentions aside things get misplaced and overlooked (remote control in fridge syndrome). You may try calling back one more time just to see if it's popped up somewhere- or possibly just been tossed in a drawer with the rest of the random cords.

    Well, it seems no one else has ever left a library book. But I did. You'd think they could send it to the library, but....
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    If you travel with your supplies often, maybe you need to print a little check list to take each time.

    Hard lesson to learn. Your cord and peddle is probably in their spare misc. box. Sorry Sandy 64

    I would not take my sewing machine anywhere. When I go somewhere it is for visiting or sightseeing.

    That is what I meant. They obviously KEEP those left behind. Perhaps it is just the obvious "electronics" related type they know someone else will probably need.

    I will say that when I was packing up from home to go to my son's wedding 6 hours away I grabbed a machine but now foot controller. I had made all of the dresses and wanted a machine "just in case". My husband is the one that asked me where it was. Machine never left the car but if I had needed it, I had it. I guarantee you if I had NOT gotten that foot controller, I would have needed it!
