I’ve discovered why I’ve taken so long to remember the direction in which I need to turn the key to unlock my dorm-room door:
Both my door and the bathroom (hallway bathroom; I didn’t even have to deal with this as a freshman) use the same key.
But you turn clockwise for the bathroom and counterclockwise for the room. Identical key, identical doorknob, different operation = slow learning.
