The Waldorf-Astoria wants you!
Not really. But the iconic New York City luxury hotel is trying to expand its collection of archived items by getting guests to return items that they may have swiped (OK, the hotel refers to them as being “secretly checked out”) by visiting guests, no questions asked.
The Waldorf’s so-called "amnesty program" applies to silverware, ashtrays and sheets that were, uh, borrowed, before 1960 and will run through Sept. 15.
The Waldorf-Astoria opened at its current location in 1931 but the hotel's history dates back to the late 1800s.
Guests of the hotel are being asked to include a brief description of the item and the approximate date it was taken.
No word on what happens to the poor souls who return their items after Sept. 15.
