When I see something really horrible in an escape room, I can’t help myself. I go on a rant. I despise lockout safes with a passion. It’s like your phone. When you put in an incorrect password too many times, it will lock you out. In this particular case, the escape room made a mistake. We needed to put in a birthday, however, we were presented with five birthdays and they forgot to tell us which birthday to use. I wasn’t even annoyed about the mistake, I was annoyed about the lockout safe. I hate them.

By the way, I don’t know if they’re actually called lockout safes. I call them that.
