Where to put my diamond earrings? I stared intently at the safe in my hotel room. And once again I pondered what the right answer was. Do I take the few valuables I own and place them in the safe, figure out what code to use, hope I remember my code, and hope the safe actually works?

The safe is basically shouting out to everyone: HERE IS WHERE ALL OF MY VALUABLES ARE!
