Institutional lifestyle: vacant lockers

Self-tutoring about probability games: the tutor mentions vacant lockers.

Especially since COVID, some institutions have banks of lockers assigned to no-one. At the same time, one can’t put a lock on one, either; the lockers are vacant, by decree.

In such a case, you might have fifty lockers along the wall, all closed. A playful person can’t help but wonder: what if you put something in one of those lockers? How likely would it still be there a day later, or at day end, for instance?

Hardly anyone looks in any of those lockers, it seems. One is tempted to believe that they’d probably get away with leaving something in one, especially if the item isn’t very valuable. One would likely experiment with a low-risk item, to start.

A big attraction of institutions is the spare capacity they have.
