I’m one of the last people out of my office at night. I shut things down & close & lock up. Now my office, like many, has electronic locks on the doors so you have to swipe a card to get in. I’ve worked in offices that had this system for years.
I know I have to have my pass on me at all times.
I closed up last night and went to drop the last few files off. I always cut through the middle of the floor, which takes me out one locked door and through another.
I’m sure you can see where this is going.
I had put my pass back in my jacket pocket (it also has my bus pass in it so I need it to get home). Then picked up the files & walked out the door leaving my pass, jacket, wallet, keys, and cell phone at my desk.
There is no one in the building who can let me back in.
I got lucky & there was someone left in the office who eventually went to head out & let me back in.
There are days I have to hang my head in shame, that was one of them.
