    Question In the door

    Hello,

    I have a question.

    A man is telling you how he's been good at playing darts since he was a small kid.
    He once played with some adults when he was seven.
    When you ask him if he won, he says "Three in the mens' room door"

    Does he mean he missed and pitched his dart at the mens' room door three times,
    instead of pitching them at the board?

    Thank you,
    Tara

    Re: In the door

    Three wayward darts hit the door of the men's room (note spelling), which must have been adjacent to the board.

    He wasn't aiming for the door.

    Hello Rover,

    Thank you very much for your kind explanation.
    Now I can picture the situation.

    And thank you for correcting my spelling.
    I'm always confused with where I should put apostrophes.

    Best regards,
    Tara
