    "Prison" is a response I've used to good effect.

    Walked into study hall in 8th grade late, monitor demanded where I had come from.

    "The Sky" I said.

    Things That Amuse You

    It was amusing how goddamned easy it was, and literally my only frame of reference was ďIíve seen this in movies.Ē I make more of a ruckus trying to line up my key in the slot. Iím from Ohio, so I do know my way around an entryway, but still.

    Iím getting one of those smart locks so the deadbolt is more consistently engaged. You should have to break something or make some noise or at least hack my fucking WiFi to get into my house when itís locked.
    focus.

    Back in college, my roommate bought a cheap lock picking set off the internet. Pretty much any normal lock tool 20-30 seconds. We even got his old car started. The older and more worn the lock, the quicker it was to get it open. Of the normal door locks, sticky deadbolts were the toughest.

    Good plan, but now donít forget to stash a spare key somewhere outside. Saves my ass every other month or so.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    Still had the milk delivery door for actual deliveries when I was a kid. Eggs too. I used to climb through it all the time..... don't ever remember the house door being locked back then.

    Yesterday I couldn't open the deadbolt WITH a key. Finally had to beat on the lever with a hammer, file the strike plate. I never use button locks on exterior doors. Too easy to break in, too easy to lock yourself out. My wife likes the button lock on our bedroom door though, so she can lock me out when she's mad at me.

    We don't lock our doors unless we're out of town, except for the garage doors. Nothing worth stealing in the house--just computers, stereo, TV's, checks, guitars, amps, just crap like that. But my skis are in the garage.

    I think he is implying that he also reversed the lock on the interior door so he truly locks the garage to secure what is valuable

    I really can't believe that. I also want to know how the guy in the other thread got his new bike stolen from his garage.

    In related news, my neighbor called me the other day. He had nagging thought that he forgot to close his garage door before he went out of town and wanted me to confirm that he didn't have a senior moment.

    But worth it when it turns out to be true that your front door is wide open...

    Peppa Pig. British animated kids show.

    My youngest watches it constantly - he asked me yesterday if I would replace batteries in the "torch".

    We went to the zoo recently and I caught myself saying zebra like "zeh-bruh" instead of "zee-bruh".

    Might becoming annoying someday. But I hope not. Better than Paw Patrol.

    I saw some peppa pig. Enjoyed it fine. My favorite was always Oswald (voiced by Fred Savage).... just the most mellow friendly positive show:

    I just hung a new door with a nice touch pad lock. No more keys needed.
