  1. I always tip the attendant anyway by leaving money in the shower room before I leave, so not so much of an issue, although if I catch this move it would make me less inclined to tip for obvious reasons.

  2. Thanks for linking to Matthew’s original article instead of Ben’s/Lucky’s write up on the same topic (with a pretty “subtle” hat tip)

  3. @Paul – Agreed. Lucky has had several articles lately with little/no credit to the original report. It’s disappointing to say the least and has really turned me off of OMAAT.
