Let’s say you’re on the road and you’ve forgotten your cellphone charger. If you’ve got a fairly common type of phone, locate a hotel, the larger and more generic the chain the better, and ask the person at the counter if they recently found a plug of your type, which you forgot on a previous visit not long ago.

Nine times out of ten they’ll hand you a free plug.
