Edgykay, told us about her ‘adventure’ of being locked out of her house.
I’ve done things like that before. When my oldest daughter was a baby asleep in her car seat, I got out of the car and closed my door, intending to go around the car and get her out. Her door was locked, all the other doors were locked, and I was in panic mode! There were people around and I was lucky enough to have one of them call the police for me. They came and opened the car.
The worst time I remember wasn’t being locked out of my house, but being locked IN. I needed to take a shower, my oldest son was about a year and a half at the time. Luckily I took him in with me (yes, yes, I have no problems with communal showers with my little ones). Well after we get out of the shower, I wrap him up, I reach for the door handle…. the door won’t open. The handle was very old and broken. I tried everything I could think of and couldn’t get the door open. Quick recap, I’m naked (with a towel), a little one who’s getting cold, a door that won’t open, and no one else is at home. Not only not at home but the neighborhood I lived in was a very quiet one, people were gone during the day. I had no idea what to do, so, hoping someone was around I opened the window and started yelling that if anyone was around I needed help. I wasn’t going to wait 8+ hours for my husband to come home. I yelled for about an hour, and finally someone came to where my window was, (one of my neighbors), he asked if I wanted him to come in and take the door off the hinges…. ummmm nooooo, I asked him to call my husband at work, who came home and took the door off the hinges.
Later when "George" (my neighbor), found out the whole story, he thought it was vastly amusing and told everyone that he shouldn’t have listened to me and come in to take the door off… funny man! (Thanks for the memories Kay) BIG HUGS, Steph
