Jim, Scott, and Alex are tired after traveling all day and check into a hotel.
When they get to reception, they find out they’ll have to walk 75 flights of stairs to get to their room because the elevator is out of order.
Jim suggests that they do something interesting to pass time while they walk the 75 flights.
Jim will tell jokes, Scott will sing songs, and Alex will tell sad stories. So Jim tells jokes for 25 flights, Scott sings songs for 25 flights and Alex tells sad stories for 24 flights.
When they reach the 75th floor, Alex tells his saddest story of all:
“Guys, I left our room key at reception.”
