We were in Maine over the weekend. Stayed at a little B&B we like, met some friends for food and drinks, went to a minor league baseball game, had some more drinks, then they went home and we had yet more drinks...you know, as we tend to do.
Went to bed, got up hungover, of course, started getting ready to check out and drive home. And we discovered a jacket in the room that does not belong to either of us. Don't know where it came from, but SPOUSE figured we accidentally grabbed it out of the car belonging to our friends when they dropped us off at the inn after our day-long hooch-fest. Easy enough to do, right? So, as we checked out, we brought the jacket to the front desk and said "this belongs to our friend - we'll call her and tell her it's here, she'll come pick it up."
Okay, so we get home and there's a message on the answering machine from the inn. They found a set of house keys in our room after we left - they thought the keys were ours and were hoping we'd get the message before we were too far away to double back.
Thing is...they were NOT our keys.
Hmmm....a strange jacket and set of keys in our room...that somehow APPEARED at some point between our check-in and going out, and getting up in the morning.
It may be an innocent thing - nothing was stolen and thieves tend NOT to leave jackets and keys behind when they do their pilfering. Could be some of the inn's room keys work in several rooms and someone got confused (very old building, lots of twisty hallways and nonsensical layout), went into our room thinking it was theirs, realized it wasn't, panicked and left quickly, leaving their jacket and keys behind.
But the idea that it wasn't innocent keeps nagging at me.
I mean...a voyeur in the closet? Hope they enjoyed the show.
