Staying in a Hotel? Doing This One Simple Thing Can Keep You Safe! by Lynette Patterson
I recently returned from a trip to a conference. Boy, was it fun, even if the beginning was a little scary. Here's what happened...
I checked into my hotel room in the middle of a group of about 20 people. I went to my room, gratefully took off my shoes and sat down. That's when a stranger entered my room! The hotel had booked and given another person the same room I was in. He quickly apologized and left. The hotel called and apologized (I got a free night). There was a bug in the system when two people checked in at the same time.
I now always throw the deadbolt and the latch! Stay safe while traveling!
