It is entirely possible to lock yourself out of the modern, electronically keyed hotel room. Even with the card-key in your hand and even with a new card-key made by the concierge. Even the “Super” may not be able to get into the room.
Here is the secret
All you need to do is leave a plastic bag (with bread and apples) hanging from your door latch. If the bag slips and turns the handle slightly (as seen above), it will effectively keep everyone out of this room. The same room with all my luggage, medications and other “stuff”.
I am slowly coming to the conclusion that the Universe was created as a practical joke.
You have been warned! 😉
