The Librarian

*#$%$@#%^

I'm stuck at home this morning whether I want to be or not (the preference is "not" ... I've got a lot to do at work today) ... my wretched key will only go halfway into my front door lock. Ditto for the spare key. So I can't lock my apartment and have to wait until the manager's office opens at 9:00 a.m. before any action can be taken. ***grumblegrumblegrumblegrumble***

UPDATE: There ARE the rare days that one lives right ... husbandly half of management appeared at my door a couple of minutes after 8:00 a.m.; he'd gone to the office early and listened to the phone messages. :-) Took a LOT of lubricant to get the lock functioning ... he says the tumblers are starting to go out of alignment and, at the first sign of future trouble, I'm to let him know so he can get a locksmith in to work on it. At the moment though, 'tis smooth as silk.
