I've been asked to look after someone's dogs. I am here now in fact, their dogs are two Boxer cross Springers and something that looks like a womble on all fours. Yet they are all cute and pretty well behaved. Until I get the dog food out that is. So, I decided to make their dinner in the cupboard under the stairs. What the owner did not tell me is that if I closed the cupboard door I wouldn't be able to open it from the inside. I was in there for an hour or so. He's not back yet, and seeing as I tried to prise the door open with a pair of sheers that he had in there, well, the door jamb is a bit worn. Yet this method did not get me out. Whilst in there, understandably annoyed and worried I managed to route around and find *guess* -- You'll never do it. The dagger from the board game Cluedo. Honestly, you'll think I'm making this up but I'm not. The bloody dagger from bloody Cluedo. Using the sheers to prise the pannel off of the doorknob. The knob itself had already fallen off in my hand. I managed to grip the thing that was supposed to be attached to the knob on my side with the hilt of the Cluedo dagger, and pull the shaft back through the lock. I reattached the knob and managed to get out. It pissed me off and considering they're gone for a week I was also scared. I thought I'd end up having to eat the dog's food. I wish he'd told me about that. Now I have to repair the doorknob, and perhaps get my hands on paint to cover up the wear and tear o nthe door jamb. BLOODY ANNOYING. -- Anyone else had a similar experience when looking after someone else's property? I hope so, I might not feel so stupid, unlucky and irresponsible. Cheers.
