We were embarking on an exciting storyline over several escape experiences. The primary grid had been hacked, and we were going to go up against the evil mastermind in three locations to uncover and reverse his master hacking plan. The set-like quality of the rooms was neat, and the puzzles’ originality was also impressive. However, we often found ourselves frustrated because some of the puzzles were a bit of a leap in logic and didn’t quite make sense.

While we were paying for an experience, and there are certain expectations with that, we also want to be respectful of the establishment. Being as experienced as we are, we find that sometimes escape room locations that are created and run by the owners get a bit nervous about having us experience their rooms. This is entirely understandable – the experiences are often the brainchild of fellow passionate enthusiasts, and it’s like putting your baby up for inspection. In these situations, we are kind and respectful when the owners want to speak with us about our thoughts on their rooms. We see ourselves as guests in someone else’s “house” and share what we enjoy about the rooms.

Translating this into everyday interactions, being kind and respectful to others is essential. This holds that even if the product and/or experience we have purchased does not meet expectations, we can still communicate this in a kind and respectful way. The same goes with our colleagues at work and our loved ones at home – when we have asked them to do something, and it doesn’t come out quite as we expected it, we still need to remain kind and respectful when discussing their efforts.
