    Hey I think I've stayed there too. Was the shower head only 3 feet high? :p

    Curling irons for very tall women?

    Outlet for wall mounted flat screen, that was never installed?

    Nope, TV is on the left and two queen beds wouldn't fit that way.

    Wow! That's the hall door?

    That's really odd.

    Was this an old building that had been renovated? I have noticed that in buildings that go back 40 years or more, you'll often find outlets up fairly high on walls. Why? For electric clocks - the high-mounted outlet avoided the ugly-looking cord hanging down. These days we use battery-powered quartz clocks and we can hang 'em wherever we like. This has led to a lot of old clock-outlets being left without a clock, so they just sit there, hoping desperately for some appliance to come along and show them a good time. :eek:

    To deepen the mystery......
    I'm on the ground floor in a room suitable for the disabled as the rod in the closet is only 3 feet high and I can't hang my pants there.

    You might want to think about springing for a small upgrade in accommodations in the future.:cool:

    That's a truly amazing bunch of weirdness there.

    Pre-fabbed wall that was installed upside down? OK, even I don't buy that. It is a mystery.

    You answered your own question. 3 feet high for the vertically disabled, 7 feet high for the pituitary gland morphs.

    They probably ran ahead to remove all of the sharp objects before you took the room....:D

    Shhhh...we all agreed not to talk about SWAGA's being a "special needs" member. And remember, he thinks he's actually a moderator, so don't ruin it for him.

    Have you noticed sudden, unexpected roadblocks for dangerous chemical spills whenever you try to leave town? Does you best pal always show up with a six-pack and a sympathetic ear whenever you have a personal crisis?

    Are there other normal sockets in the room? I'd call room service and ask them.
