Once again Sir Fido awoke me to take him out a half hour before it was time to get up. I saw the rabbit in the snow a few feet away from the door and knew he'd soon be scaring it away. A couple barks after the door was shut and I knew the rabbit would be on it's way. But the minor "there's a rabbit in the yard" barking turned to his frenzied "the paper guy is here" barking and I had to get back out before he woke the neighborhood.
So what did I do first to keep him from waking the family? Shut the door behind me. The locked door. It's before 6:00 a.m., I'm in bare feet and PJs, the door's locked, and did I mention the family's still asleep? You do know why Sir Fido wakes me instead of the others? Because they all sleep so soundly - not the attribute I was hoping for as my thumb pressed the door bell.
Luckily the wife came to the rescue because I didn't want to be late for work. Yeah, that's it, late for work.
It can't be that uncommon to mistakenly lock yourself out, but how about twice in one day? Finishing the work day yesterday, I pulled the door shut behind me and pushed the lever to check the automatic lock. One problem, I was opening the next morning and accidently left my key inside the building.
