Between the sheets

Having recently spent three nights in two hotels I again am wondering why hotels don't use fitted bottom sheets. Yes, it is somewhat simpler for the laundry and for the housekeeping staff — at least when they are grabbing stacks of sheets to take on their rounds. But isn't it harder to put a flat sheet on a bed than a fitted sheet?

And what about the customer? I'm sick and tired of turning down my bed only to have to retuck 3/4th s of the bottom sheet! And even then my tossing and turning ends up untucking the bottom sheet again and I find myself in the middle of the night on the bare (and usually rough) mattress.

If I could find a hotel that didn't use a flat sheet on bottom I'd use it and send nasty letters to all of the others.
