Life Lesson: Two way mirror test

9 Jan

If you’re in a dressing/ changing room and you look in the mirror and realize to yourself that someone may be on the other side of that mirror and that is not  ok with you than check this test out:


Department stores sometimes hire people to watch shoppers change in dressing rooms behind two way mirrors to guard against theft.

This test can let you know quickly and easily.

You’re welcome.

Also apologies if I posted about this once before but it’s good to know so it’s good to have a refresher course.

Apparently that term does not work for hotels. I was staying in a hotel during a trip to San Diego during the 2008 San Diego Comic Con. I was poorish and this hotel was way cheap so I booked it online. Little did I know there was a gang of truckers and scary bike dudes having a “one year ago we killed a young woman here and we need to do it again” meeting next door. So I took precautions and took every item not bolted to the floor shoved it in front of the door every night and slept with a butter knife under my pillow. I was ready to take them all down. Luckily they sensed my strength and left me be.

It was a lovely stay at the local Break n' Entering Inn.
