UK students stuck in the US after school says New Hampshire hotel destroyed passports | Category: General Source
Wow, how about this weather huh? Oh yeah those 40 or so students are late getting back by 20min. Well hotel policy and all…
> it is not unusual for hotels to hold the passports of student groups, for the purpose of keeping them safe.
> “We always know it’s a very risky situation with their passports. So, when they arrive at the hotel, the chaperones collect them and put them into a safety deposit box,” said Mike Simon, general manager at Mountain Club on Loon.
Very risky indeed.
How exactly do you mistakenly shred 41 passports? They’re not simply paper documents that could be mistaken for something else, and they are made of pretty durable material, so there’s no way so 41 of them just went through the shredder without it binding up unless this hotel has an industrial shredder.
