On the desk in my room in Hotel Grand Samarkand Superior: "The price-list for damage of property of rooms of hotel 'The Grand Samarkand Superior'".

A few examples:

blanket $100

decorative pillow $50

flower vase $40

face towel $40

mirror (big) $200

mirror (small) $50

Call me a chicken, but tonight I'm just going to destroy the small mirror and a face towel. Ninety dollars for half an hour of sheer pleasure is a bargain. Tomorrow morning I may declare war against the vase, it depends on my dreams.
