What is the funniest thing ever to happen to you?Once I was visiting SF with my friend. We booked an Airbnb room in a neighborhood that didn’t look too safe. After the first day exploring the city, we came back to the street where we were staying, opened the gates that led to the apartment, opened the door, and only then we realized that it wasn't our place at all. Knowing how big of a deal trespassing is in the USA, we were very concerned. Funny thing is that the gates downstairs got locked so we were trapped in there. Soon an old lady showed up from the bedroom, started to yell something in Spanish to us but finally let us out. We couldn’t stop laughing but it surely was a terrifying experience.
