Hotel safety

You know how, when you get to your room in a hotel, you check where the fire exit is . . . or you do, anyway, if you're careful? I've found that hotels have really piled on the safety warnings these days. I was in Denver yesterday on business, and my hotel had not only the usual safety warnings but even this special announcement, placed near the TV for some reason.

I never realized that cell phones could activate an alarm system. Seems like a little problem in a hotel.

And I was imagining what's implicit in the final "warning" -- "We've received complaints . . . from management; it affects productivity in their offices."
