"Roy was a potential business partner for one of our car servicing operations. You arrived at his premise at 10am and no one answered the door. Given our friend's tendency to sleep late, you concluded that he was still pushing 'z's and did the wise ol' thing of using the key under his doormat to let yourself in and wake him up. You also used the key to open his car roller door so that you could drive the car in and assess his work as a mechanic. Inside, there was no one home.
