One of the worst feelings is getting home after a long day at work, arms full of grocery bags, feet aching after standing for six hours straight, only to realize that your house key is on the opposite side of the door. Unfortunately, this is the feeling of locking yourself out. It is one that I recently became all too familiar with. After moving closer to a popular public transportation center where I chose a public transit pass over a car.
Now I didn’t have to carry around a set of car keys every day to get to work. This made it hard to remember to grab the small shiny key that would let me back in my home at the end of the day. I would wake up every morning with the best of intentions, only to lock and slam the door in a hurry. When I was halfway to the subway station I would realize my mistake. Each time without fail I would call my local locksmith (speed dial #3) to let me back into my home.
After a few costly visits, the local locksmith gently suggested that maybe I should have duplicate keys made. This would help prevent me from locking myself out again. I chose to have several new keys made. This is the most cost-effective alternative. Artie’s Locksmith NYC cut me a couple of keys in just a few minutes. This was the solution to this problem.
With my new duplicate keys in hand, I gave one key to my next-door neighbor, Mrs. Kinshaw. Now I never need to worry about locking myself out, in case I once again slam the door without my key in hand.
