Woman slams rude holidaymakers for 'getting up at 4am' to claim sun loungers at holiday resort

Woman slams rude holidaymakers for 'getting up at 4am' to claim sun loungers at holiday resort

All the empty sun loungers were covered with towels

A woman has hit out at 'selfish' holidaymakers who put their towels over sun loungers in hotels to 'reserve' them.

The summer season sees holidaymakers getting up at the crack of dawn and racing down to the poolside in order to secure themselves a spot there.

Viral videos have already shown the holiday chaos this summer, as guests stampede along the pool and fling their towels down to lay claim to the beds.

Territorial is putting it mildly.

Some people don't even go onto their lounger, but put the towel on and leave it there. Then they disappear, secure in the knowledge that they actually have a lounger.

Meanwhile, the loungers lie empty throughout the day all because one person decided they wanted to 'reserve' it.

But hair stylist Denise has decided that she's had enough of this.

Posting a video of a poolside to her TikTok, where it received more than 100,000 views, she wrote: "People are so rude and selfish! I think I might be starting a series on selfish people.

"My pet peeve is when people come to the pool at four in the morning and put their towels all over the chairs so nobody else can sit, but yet they're not even there.

Denise showed all the unoccupied towels laid out.

"So annoying and inconsiderate."

The problem has become so widespread that some hotels even employ staff to keep an eye on the situation by the pool.

Another viral video recently showed a member of staff with a timer clocking 'reserved' sun loungers.

If the towel is still there and the lounger is still empty half an hour later, he collects the towel and frees it up for someone else.

That seems like a pretty fair system to me! It allows people to hold their lounger while they go and get a drink or go to the loo, or even go and get changed.

However, it stops people from taking the p**s with their lounger-hogging stratagems.

It's an ongoing war this summer.

Viewers heaped praise and jokes on Denise's video, with one joking: "It’s not inconsiderate, it’s very nice of them to give me with their towels to use."

Another suggested checking if any other belongings had been left before taking the spot, saying: "Yeah unless there is accompanying property to indicate a human is present, take the spot."

And a third made another suggestion, saying: "I sit for around half hour, then ask people swimming in the pool are the towels theirs, if they aren't, I pick them up and put them aside then sit."
