The 300 Dollar Mistake

by James & Miel on November 28, 2007 · 0 comments

So, in addition to being snowed under with work at the University, I came home Monday afternoon to find that I had forgotten my keys. Since my wife Miel usually has a spare set of keys, I can normally wait until she gets home – but in this case, she’s in Afghanistan, so I’d be waiting a long time for her to get home. Instead, I called a locksmith.

It cost $300 to have my door lock drilled and a new lock put in. Being a student, it totally blew out my budget for this month.

All I can say is – geeze.

I won’t be forgetting my keys anytime again soon.
