You're relaxing in your hotel room, when all of a sudden the fire alarm rings. You stare at the doorway in shock -- smoke is coming out from below!
You open the door and rush into the smoke-filled hallway. Of course, the elevators aren't working! You reach a door marked "Fire Exit -- Emergency Only". Sobbing with relief, you open the door.....
... Only to realize that the door leads... to an ice machine! And a Coke vending machine! And the exact same hallway you were in before!!
We were doubled over with laughter when we saw this at our hotel in Las Vegas. We figured they had done some renovations and had forgotten to take off the Fire Exit signs.
It took us a while to realize that the door actually did serve a purpose. It is right beside the elevators, and in a fire, steel doors actually come down (see the metal track on the ceiling and walls?), shutting the elevator area off from the rest of the hallway. So if you happen to be waiting for an elevator when someone pulls the fire alarm, you'd be trapped -- unless you use that door to get back to the hallway. So it's not so funny after all. But we still had a good laugh.
