Fire Alarm
I had this worst experience when i was in hotel. While cooking the fire alarm started ringing. I was in panic what to do. But later realised and cleared the air around the fire alarm with blanket.
So whenever the alarm rings then its time to clear the smoke around the alarm.

Shower curtains should be tucked-in
In most of the hotels or houses does not have indian style bathrooms for taking bath. Instead they have bath-tub with shower curtain.

The purpose of the shower curtain is not to separate the bath-tub from the other part of the toilet, but most importantly to keep the floor of the toilet dry.

The shower curtain should be drawn and the bottom end should be "inside" the bath-tub. I had seen many newcomers putting the shower curtain outside the bath-tub and wetting the whole floor. (and the house-maid at hotel was very angry...)

So remember to tuck-in the shower curtain inside the bath-tub when you are taking the bath.

Problem with I94- Some one have assign my I94 number
I have valid L1 visa and have different kind of issue happen for my I94.
I landed USA on Jan-28th and done immigration and customs. So, after 2 day, ie., on Jan-30 I went to SSN office to apply my ssn number. There the SSN administrative officer told me that my I94 have some problem. Ie., some one is using my I94 L1 number. They return in a paper like “Your I-94 Class L1 is assigned to someone else in the USCIS save data base; therefore you must Obtain a new I-94”, so they denied my SSN number. So, I feel panic and went to Nearest Immigration center in the international airport to get new I94. But the immigration officer also told me that he can’t help me until the data will reflect in the system, so it will take 2 weeks to get the I94 status.

Now, i feel really tensed, since I didn’t do any mistake on that then how do I’ll solve this problem. Can any please advice me that how I’ll resolve this issue.
