What to do when you lock yourself out
Blog Guy, you seem to be in a foul mood today. Is anything wrong?
Don’t even get me started about my morning. It was the WORST!
When I got to my office I realized I had left my key at home, and I didn’t want to go all the way back to get it.
What did you do?
The usual stuff. First I kicked the door a few times, really hard, but it wouldn’t open.
So then naturally I piled up some old newspapers soaked in gasoline and started a fire to try to burn up the door, but still nothing.
Willikers! Then what?
Then I found a huge honking concrete block and hurled it repeatedly at the door until it finally caved in and I got inside. It was a nightmare!
Well at least it’s over now.
No it isn’t. Now it turns out I’m responsible for injuring several of my staffers who were on the other side, pushing on the door to keep me out.
