One of our scholar athletes sent me an email this semester about why he had missed class. He went to leave his dorm only to find that the handle on the door was broken and he couldn't get out. Yes, folks, you heard that right. He was stymied by a doorknob.

Heh. I have had doorknob issues in the past. I sympathize with your student.

But during the course of a 50-minute class session, don't you think it would've occured to him to walk out a different door?

Dorm rooms have multiple doors?

Of course, it might have occurred to him to  phone someone up to open the door from the outside if that's what was needed.

Yes, most dorm rooms only have one door.
