The parking lot is full. HOW could they think they are the only guests?

We get this a LOT. Sitting at breakfast, guests will look out the window and see 5 cars (other than ours!) and ask if they are the only guests.

 Yes, yes you are.

Like the question after I show them up the stairs to their room. They say "Is that the only way up there?" My "unless you are spider man" comment sometimes escapes...if I think they can handle humor.

The ones that get me are the ones that ask if they have to come through the house to get to their room (rooms are on the 2nd floor).  Is it that they don't want to enter the code or is it they don't want us to know when they come and go?  I haven't figured it out which it is or if there are other reasons... slipping in additional heads?  not wanting us to see just how much they plan on lugging in?

I'm going with they just don't want to disturb anyone if they come back late. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope it's not for nefarious reasons that they ask that question.

Motels - ahhh, yes the ones where you park right out side your door!!!   Different from Hotel people because most of them have a central entry which auto locks at night and you have to use your room card to get in.

I agree with Harborfields ... or they just don't want to disturb anyone when going in and out.

I love the homes that have the two staircases.
