I have been learning about the little things that make living in this place interesting, if not embarrassing. 🙂
As I was unpacking our things from the big shipping boxes – I would cut them down to stack nicely in a pile outside our door in the hall so the maintenance guys could pick them up in the morning.
Normally when you leave the door unlocked to go out – you can get back in. Not so with our apartment door ! It was 10:00 pm and I was locked out ! (Luckily I wasn’t in my pajamas. 🙂
I went down to the front desk, hoping someone would still be there. There was. Learned we have 24 hour staff available with a night security guy.
Lesson #1 The only way you can open the door is with the key – whether you leave it locked or unlocked. (double security)
They give us this nice little key chain bracelet – and now I hang it on the door handle so every time I go out I just slip it on my hand.
Oh, that black thing on the key chain – It is a sensor.
If you enter the building at the main entrance after 8:00 pm when the doors are locked, you can still get in by touching the sensor to the box next to the door, and that opens the door.
Stay tuned for Lesson #2 🙂
