I Work at Fort Knox

The other day I found out just how secure my office really is.  You see we are on the second floor of a building with an open lobby.  There is a long winding staircase and our lobby overlooks the vestibule below. It is quite pretty.  However, we cannot just have anyone off the street roaming free in our office as we have important things that are for OUR EYES ONLY.  It is true.  As a result, every door that enters into the actual offices require a pin number on a keypad.   It can get rather annoying when you have to leave one hall to the next (for example there are five doors off the lobby itself and each one has a keypad).  Luckily the receptionist can buzz you in the door that leads to the restroom to make it easier for her when clients are there. She can also buzz you into the door where the conference rooms are. As for the rest of the doors, you are on your own.

Which brings us to the latest events.  A well known client, maybe even an important client, came into the office.  He needed to go through one of the doors that the receptionist could not buzz him through to get to see Partner.  The receptionist told him to hang on so she could come over and let him through. The client, however, had other ideas and said,

"No, that's okay, I've got it."

and proceeded to take out a credit card and swipe it down the side of the door which sprang open instantaneously and effortlessly.

Are you kidding me?

The man used a CREDIT CARD to open our secured, keypad doors.

I nearly peed myself laughing so hard.

The receptionist replicated his display with success, immediately freaked out and went to find someone to 'TAKE CARE OF THIS."

I continued to laugh.

Then I took my iPod docking station home.

Good girl - the heck with all the papers and ect that no one should see, grab what's important to save-the IPod dock, can't be without that!
(you did lock the candy drawer- right??)
Stay Safe !!!

Mom - I did not lock the candy drawer, but I really dont think I will miss anything in there. The Ipod speakers? Those I would miss!

Man...how did that guy even know that would work?

Now I can break into the mail room and get all the stamps I want!

*~Dani~* said...

saratogajean - that is what struck me as hilarious - how the heck would he even think that would work? And why did it? I think the only room locked to me, however, contains firm brochures. Who wants to steal those?

Jennifer said...

This is the funniest thing I have ever heard. How did that fancy client know what to do??

*~Dani~* said...

Jennifer - no clue, but I am thinking he needs to teach me some tricks!

Marla @ Stolen Bon Bons said...

Hi Dani, can you please stop by my blog ASAP!

Bryan said...

I think he has done this a time or two. Do you think maybe that is why he is a client?

Matt said...

I could break in to there.

Guaranteed.

*~Dani~* said...

Bryan - well since we don't do criminal law, no. However, he is quite clever. Did you teach him a thing or two or pass out one of your special training books?

Matt - I am sure you can. And probably even more cleverly. If that is a word.
