Mr K in a strange house.
On entering a strange house and before settling down, Mr K looked for the doors leading out of the house and nothing else. On being asked why, he answered with some embarrassment: “It’s a tiresome habit. I believe in justice; so it’s rather important that there should be more than one door out of the place where I’m living”.
