What a day yesterday.
I got out of work early and made it home with daylight to spare. What a beautiful afternoon it was, so I decided to clean out my car. What a mess! But now the inside is clean, and the trunk is somewhat emptier. I figured I might as well get that out of the way now, since it was warm outside. Better to do it now than Christmas day…just in case it’s really cold! Dawgy is going to the folks’ house with us for Christmas dinner, and I know we’ll have a bunch of stuff to bring back, so we need all the room we can get!
After dumping out the car, I lugged a bunch of stuff up to the apartment and dropped it on the floor in front of the door. I put my key in the dead bolt, turned it and…
SNAP! Something broke and my key turned all the way in the lock!
By this time, I’m cursing at the damn lock and grabbing for my cell phone. I call the office and go sit outside to have a cigarette and wait for the maintenance man to show up.
He shows up about fifteen minutes later. And then proceeds to break into my apartment, almost killing himself in the process. (He was OLD. I thought he was going to have a damn heart attack right in my hallway!)
He fixes the lock as best as he can and promises to have the locksmith over to my apartment today to fix things.
Yee haa. This is just what I need!
