Some Locksmith Stories
Have you read the book 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James. It was suppose to be kind of erotic novel and people really seemed to love it. They love it so much that they imitate the scenes in the book.
I grew up in the generation where people were imitating stuff they saw on television and getting hurt from it. Is it better or worse that people are imitating things they read. It is nice to hear that my generation is reading again but then they can’t tell the difference between reality and fantasy.
Anyways I found myself responding to a phone call. This 19 year old girl had managed to handcuff herself naked to her bed. Her boyfriend was handcuffed across the room equally as naked. I am not expert on these kind of things but I would like to think they would at least have to be next to each other.
She was close enough to her phone and was able to find my number from her smart phone on Google from my website.
They ended up in the same situation again a week later. They ended up being what I call a repeat offender. It was nice to know I was on their speed dial for emergency locksmith.
One time I received a call from them that I need to hurry and get them out of the handcuffs. Apparently her parents were on the way home. I’ve been young and stupid before so I got over their fast and picked open the front door and then got them out of their handcuffs in record time.
After that I got a copy of the book. The story was really too simple of a read to have any significant effect.
Some customer stories
I happened to have had a stressful day and on top of that, I locked myself out of the house. Rushing to get everything that I needed to get done for the day, I left my only set of house keys sitting on the table by the door. I could literally see them from the door window. Frustrated, I called a locksmith in Brooklyn, NY where I lived. It took the locksmith 45 minutes to get out to my house. Once he got there they asked a bunch of questions in order to unlock the door. My luck turned into something better once I saw that this locksmith in Brooklyn, NY was skilled and knew exactly what he was doing. After fifteen minutes of him fidgeting with my door handle he got the door unlocked. He was kind is his manner and asked if I would like to have a spare key made so that this doesn’t happen again. I agreed and he when to his van and cut me an identical key for my front and back door. I was pleased as I watched him drive away.
