Scott Chaffin is having trouble with hotel doors, something that irritates me to no end.
Quick humorous anecdote, with the names concealed to protect the stupid.
I once heard a story about a person who went to a friend’s wedding and had a couple drinks at the reception. The person then retired to his room without incident. This person is blind as a bat without glasses or contact lenses. In the middle of the night, he may have gotten out of bed to use the facilities. Without bothering to put on his glasses, he then walked briskly to the bathroom in only his boxer shorts. Unfortunately, the drink may have impaired his judgement, and he mistook the bathroom door for the room door, and much to his chagrin found himself locked outside his room in only his boxer shorts at 3 am in the morning in a $200 a night hotel.
Just a story I heard.
This person wouldn’t happen to be a teacher, would he? Ex-Army? Lives in West Virginny, perhaps? ;)
John, was this hotel your “friend” was staying by any chance The Rittenhouse in Philly?

At least he could be grateful for the boxer shorts–hotel hallways can be a tad drafty.
Actually, I did the same thing at the Hotel Hudson in NYC – sans underware. The best part was when, after spending ten minutes looking for a phone, a large man in a suit came out of the elevator. Pearing around a corner I asked;
“Are you with the hotel?”
“Yes I am”
“I seem to have locked myself out of my room”
“We were hoping it was something like that… We’ve been watching you on the security cameras for some time now.”
