Let’s get this straight, Murphy you are not welcome here.
You know Murphy you always turn up at the worst possible time. Take for instance last Tuesday. We were running late for school drop off and all of a sudden you need to rear your ugly head.
Rush rush rush, EVERYBODY in the car NOW!!!
WAIT- why won’t my key not turn from the lock? It’s stuck. Why???
Omg in the moment of rush I had managed to lock the door with the wrong key and get it stuck in there….. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Panic sets in, running late, the key is stuck! And stuck tight!
I proceed to take off my other keys and run around to the front door to see if I could unlock the door from the other side… der of course I couldn’t. I run around to the back door and think to myself, its stuck no one will be able to open it, let’s goooooooooooooooo!!
Shut the screen door which then wedges itself onto the stuck key… great. Two doors now unable to be opened…
I did manage to get the kids to school on time, phew. Next question, ring a lock smith? Landlord?
I decided the landlord would be cheaper…. although how embarrassing…
I fumbled my way through my explanation whilst he dismantled the lock – Yep the whole lock had to be pulled apart to retrieve the key which was bent out of shape due to trying to get it unstuck…
Needless to say, in future when rushing I will make sure that I am not distracted whilst locking up!
