No, I wasn't trapped in the whole wide Butuan City, but only in Almont Inland Hotel where we were hosted for a 5-day training on Basic Employment Services. It was the first morning in Butuan and after we returned back to our room for freshening up, I went to the bath, and after I attempted to go out that I realized I was trapped. The doorknob wouldn't turn and even if I have tried every turning, it wouldn't budge a thing.
Good thing that my roommates were still in the room and heard my effort of trying to get the knob to turn that they called for the maintenance of the hotel. I can see from the inside that the hinges are also firmly locked that I could not remove them easily, and the best way they could open me free is to destroy the lock of the knob from the outside.
It was a 20 minute hysteria for me, not because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get out because I believe my friends could get me out of there before the training started, but I was scared because there seemed to be no air getting inside the room, and I was profusely sweating inside. The panic wasn't really obvious in my face because I can communicate with them by just speaking loudly and I knew they were doing everything to set me free from the bath.
ebay loans just so they could improve the facilities in the hotel.
I got out okey, they couldn't remove the lock pick from the outside so when that doorknob was removed, I asked for the screwdriver myself, because I an see from inside the bath how to get that pick to turn. So I guess I can say, I set myself free.
And we were able to proceed to the training on time. Whew! Funny hysteria!
