Well just got home put my key in the lock turned it pushed handle down door still solid?
Went to back door key in it cant open that either! no windows open sat in garden, now started raining
locksmith cant make it till 6.45!! luckily can still connect to internet via home hub (till laptop battery runs out.)

No doubt going to be charged a fortune for someone to butcher my door, so will have to have a new one.

Got married a month ago come back from California 2 weeks ago so skint!

Anyone having a worse day!!! Oh and I need the toilet and the cat is meowing to get out of the house so he is probably going to go toilet on my new rug! great

Pee all around the edge of your garden to mark your territory! wink


Odd that none of the keys work, either the wife has binned you or you have the wrong keys......

Are you sure noone has broken in and locked themselves in your house? Shout through the letter box that you are armed and dangerous and a black belt in ju-jitsu and the intruder will definately give up.

Yeah, broke into someones house and the bloke has only gone and bust the lock so I'm stuck in here, I can see him outside dancing around holding his crotch like a 5 year old...think he needs a pee.

To top it all, there's a cat in here crapping all over the place and it won't shut up.

Is it a Yale-type lock? Is there a letter-box? Do you have access to a 2' length of cable?

This should be good. You lose man points for calling a locksmith though.

Kind of reminds me of the keys 55 miles away from the car that needs moving thread in GG a couple of months ago. hehe

Break a window. Cheaper than a locksmith ffs.

Must be something badly wrong if front and back doors both won't open. Is your house falling down?
