So a couple secrets themselves in a New York City hotel room in the afternoon for some private time. Meanwhile, downstairs, the desk clerk accidentally gives a guest checking in a keycard to their room. The new guest, fresh off a LONG flight from Las Vegas rolls his case upstairs and encounters a Do Not Disturb sign. Huh. That’s weird. Maybe housekeeping missed it. And the key works so let’s just head on in….followed by screams and profanity and shrieks of terror.
When The Front Desk Effs Up

Something similar happened to me, except I got my room numbers mixed up and tried entering the wrong room. I always thought that each keycard was individually programmed for specific room numbers. Not so, at least not in my case. I used my keycard to open up what I thought was the correct room. As I entered the room I noted luggage on the floor that didn’t look familiar. As I walked further in I looked at the bed and to my horror saw someone in there who I didn’t recognize! Fortunately the person was asleep and wasn’t engaged in any private activities. I quickly and quietly snuck out of the room. I informed the person at the front desk about what happened, but she didn’t seem very concerned about it. I’m always extra cautious now to make sure that I remember my room number!
