2. Charge Drinks at the Lobby Bar to a Random Room: Whether you're a Frank Abagnale, Jr type or you're
a sociopath down on you're luck or if you're just curious if it could work, you've at least tried to give a random room number to the bartender. It's harder to do that these days thanks to technology yet it could still work at smaller, older hotels. But if they ask for the last name on the room, you're screwed.
3. Conduct Shady Business: A lot of strange, shady business goes down in hotel lobbies from politicians taking cash bribes and businessmen
threatening er, reasoning with their partners to more sinister dealings like murder-for-hire plots. Yet the hotel lobby is the perfect sort of place for this--it's in public, but not too public, there's usually comfy seating and most importantly, a bar to wash away any nerves.
4. Scream at the Front Desk: It could have been because you're room wasn't ready. Or if could have been because they overcharged you on the check-out folio. Of you could have just been a pompous asshat, demanding an upgrade simply because you have an Amex card (bonus points if you throw a Black Amex card at the front desk agent and ask them if they even know what it is. True Story.)
5. Drop a Deuce in the Lobby Bathroom: You did it, just admit it. Especially if your room upstairs didn't have a bathroom fan.
