The art and act of finding the hole is one that has separated boys from men for centuries. Youngins and novices have incensed many an anxious woman and frustrated the softer sex, sometimes even males, by fumbling over the hole and even missing it totally occasionally.

When one is in a rush to enter the space the tiny hole always leads to, it is expected that the eagerness and excitement would translate to cecity and clumsiness. And, needless to say, one’s chances of missing the hole increase exponentially under such circumstances.

It is a well-known fact that not all rooms meet the expectations of the people who pay for them, but how would the payee know whether his investments have been worth it? How would he be able to determine whether or not the room small or too large, unless he finds the hole and enters the room?

Another factor, perhaps the most significant to determine whether one will find or miss the hole, is light or darkness. Can you find a pin in a dark room? By extension, finding the tiny hole is even more difficult when there is dearth of light.

Finding the keyhole is very difficult when you are in a rush to enter the room, or when someone is breathing down your neck or when you are drunk, or when there is no light on the corridor or hallway or outside the house; but, when you finally enter the house/room, you easily forget the struggle involved in pushing the key into the hole. Normal human behavior, methinks.
