Yesterday didn't start well. PERIOD. First, I was going to go to my credit union to have them print me out a new debit card. I had them cancel my old one, since I'd used it at Target during the security breach time. It had been 10 days and I had NOT received it yet and by yesterday I was fed up waiting and waiting for it to arrive in the mail (I STILL have NOT received it...)
So, I grabbed my keys, locked the house, locked the front gate, and hit the car button to unlock it...NOTHING. NO response...hmmmm...I tried it 3x before I realized that I had grabbed hubby's set of car keys (no house keys on them). And, I was locked out of the yard.
Fortunately, the workers arrived across the street. They are tearing up the beautiful tiles and putting in wood laminate flooring, so I figured they might have a screwdriver and I could unscrew the screws on the front gate latch. Nope. The latch covered the screws...no way. So, back I went to ask one of them and bring a crowbar to pry off the latch, which he graciously did. I was able to get into the house, grab my keys, and get to the bank to have them print me out a new debit card. And, I had an extra gate latch, which I was able to install myself :-)
