There are stories about hotel incidents but my internet connection is turbulent and could not copy/paste some of the story.

Anyways you can google them

First story about a hotel manager who got stuck in elevator for 4 days
The hotel was empty !!! and someone noticed mail piling up in front the hotel and called the firebrigade

While trying to google a better source for the story, I found another Google result of a man who locked himself up NAKED in a hotel lobby.

What would you do if stuck in either situations.

Trapped in an elevator. Pry open the doors. Odds are you can climb up or down to the next floor. Failing that, use the emergency hatch at the top and climb up to the last floor. Of course, if you can't do either... you are pretty much hosed.

Locked naked out of my room. So not gonna happen. Momma didn't raise no fool, I don't leave the room unless decently clothed.

When I read the title, I thought the thread was about what to do when you have five or more people in one hotel room and all you have are a bag of peanuts and cans of soda.

I'm a nudist by nature but I don't wander from my hotel room without at least my packed columbia shorts on. And I'm not stupid enough to lock myself out.

LOL @ Jeanette. I thought similar. Hey I always pack for survival. The food is mine and if they want it they're gonna have to pay for it. A lot.

I was hoping for out-of-the-box thinking such as how to make a meal with what can be found in a hotel like crackers and ketchup packets.

Crackers and ketchup packets don't leave much room for creative meal creation, IMHO!

Not really, wildman
If you are in the right (or wrong) situation , you may do it

A few years ago, I was in a ship with guys from different countries. They caught and ate all kind of things including shark.

My diet was more restricted than theirs, due to my beliefs ..etc. I finally ended up eating boiled white rice mixed with a generous amount of tomato ketchup !!

Close enough to crackers and ketchup
