FNG at His First Event.

A long-time project manager here at work had a new guy at his event...
They arrived in town, went to the site, checked out the equipment to be installed the next day then knocked off for the remainder of the afternoon in order to get checked in to the hotel and get dinner before their first set-up day.

The PM got the FNG checked in to the hotel, told him where the local restaurants and bars were, and made arrangements to meet in the lobby in the morning to head to the site.

At 7:30 the next morning, everyone was standing around, waiting for the FNG...
7:45- No FNG...
At 8:00 the PM called the FNG's cell phone... the FNG answered breathlessly.
"I can't get out of my room!"
"You can't get out of your room? Why not?" the PM asked.
"There are only 3 doors in here... One is a closet, one is a bathroom, and the other has a sign on it that says 'Do Not Disturb'."

Obviously, the FNG is management material...
