Hockey Sticked

I was hockey sticked last night. What is that? It’s a fine school dorm tradition in Canada. For doors that open in to the room you use a wire coat hanger, a hockey stick and a generous amount of duct tape to keep the door from opening. Effectively locking someone in to their own dorm room. Always too proud to give my assaulters any satisfaction I just told them to leave. I looked at escaping through my window. Unfortunately I didn’t have the right size screwdriver, and my girth wouldn’t have fit easily through a rather high opening. Then I attempted something truly novel. I used my cell phone to call my own dorm and talked someone in to removing the hockey stick from the door handle. In a few minutes I was free.

What was the world like before wireless?
