Crockpot on High with a tea towel under it?

My mother left a crockpot with a tea towel under it on the counter today before she went to work. It was on high. It was pretty hot. Am I overreacting in thinking that this is unsafe?

The crockpot has no timer, if that makes a difference at all. I'm assuming that she was going to turn it off when she got home at 4:30pm (she leaves at 8am). I don't want to bring it up with her if I'm being silly about this. Anecdotes are welcome as well.
Thanks in advance!
