What happens when you turn right 4 times

So I have just returned from a recent work trip to Melbourne, and boy was it cold.

It speaks volumes about my sense of direction when I stay in the hotel for 3 days, 2 nights, and only on the last day do I finally figure out that the hotel and the office are in the same building.

And I was wondering why the lifts looked so similar. I had earlier concluded that it must be because the building manager was the same. Ta-da!

So every day, at the end of each day, I would exit the office building, turn right, turn right again, walk maybe 10 metres down the street, turn right and then turn right again, and get into the hotel entrance. Hmm. How come I see so many of my colleagues around the hotel, I would wonder. I thought they were just meeting clients to have coffee or meals.

At the beginning of each day, I would leave the hotel, turn left, turn left again, walk 10 metres up the street, turn left and then turn left again. And still it would not occur to me that, perhaps, I could be walking back into the same building.

It was on the last day when I was chatting with a colleague about something, looked out his office window and realised that I had exactly the same view from my hotel room. But that's not when I realised I had been in the same building for the last 3 days and 2 nights. That's when I asked him whether the tall building opposite our office was my hotel ...

Such a sweet story, it is great to be able to tell a good tale at one's own expense (as I would do, too, except I never make any mistakes....)

Now take this as an independent review: You should be writing a column somewhere. You have a great knack of delivering a punch line, or ending with a quirky twist. (but I guess being a lawyer pays a bit better, so never mind)
