I had a very embarassing episode at my hotel this morning. Woke up at 6:00 a.m., old time, still somewhat groggy but had to get up to make a long trip. I got up wearing only my underwear, and went into the hallway to take out the room service trays, when next thing I know, the room door closes behind me. I am locked out of my room wearing only my underwear! (my key cards were inside the room). After standing there stunned at my stupidity for a second, I walked up and down the hallway of my floor looking for an emergency phone of some kind. No such animal. Finally decided to bite the bullet and took the elevator down to the lobby. As soon as security saw me walking around in my underwear they were on me in two seconds. I told the head security guy I locked myself out of my room which is why I was in front of him in my underwear. He laughed and went to retrieve his keys but took his time doing so. All the while I am standing there in my underwear with people in the lobby gawking at me, including some children. This was not a good scene. As we rode the elevator back up to my room, the security dude told me this happens ALL THE TIME. I asked why there is no emergency phone to call security on the floor of my room, and he said he didn`t know.
Moral of story is to make sure you are fully awake before you leave your room.
