Room 317 wants what?!

You probably thought only rock stars, athletes and other VIPs made outrageous requests when checking into a hotel. Nope, hoteliers have heard it all, even from regular folks like you. Skyscanner, a travel search engine, surveyed 400 hotel workers worldwide about the most unusual demands they've heard and the most unusual complaints they received. (Among the complaints: The sheets were too white.) You can read that full list at www.skyscanner.net. Meantime, here's the top 10 list of demands:

1. One glass of water on the hour every hour (all night long)

2. 15 cucumbers a day

3. Toilet to be filled with mineral water

4. Bath of honey

5. Sound of goat bells to aid sleep

6. Only the right legs of a chicken

7. A dead mouse

8. Bath of chocolate milk

9. 16 pillows (for one guest)

10. Crocodile soup
