1. to disregard or overlook (something illegal, objectionable, or the like). 2. to give tacit approval to: By his silence, he seemed to condone their behavior. 3. to pardon or forgive (an offense); excuse. 4. to cause the condonation of. 5. Law. to forgive or act so as to imply forgiveness of (a violation of the marriage vow).

Don't know about anyone else, but every time I've been to a hotel, they always have brand new soap bars laid out. Who would like to go to a hotel and find they have not changed the soap? Such a joy to pick the previous occupant's pubes off before you wash. I'm definitely coming back here again.
