Somebody call Ripley's!
I was at the Massive Home Hardware Center today, and happened to pass the key-cutting station. Thinking that I'd not yet gotten spare keys for my new residence, I stopped there and grabbed for my keys, looking wistfully around and wondering how long I was going to have to wait.
A young man 30 yards away instantly looked up, raised his hand in recognition of a customer, and hollered as he hustled over, "Can I help you, sir?"
This guy actually knew how to man the key-cutter, and asked how many I wanted, and didn't sigh when I asked for three.
I thought about it, and said, "Not to impune your skills, but let's make it four, to give me an extra, just in case."
He smiled and said "I've got a pretty good record on this thing. It's how you set the key in the machine."
No doubt, I thought, thinking back to my time as a locksmith's assistant.
He banged out four keys in about 2 minutes flat, and put them in a bag and wished me a good day.
I got home an hour later, and tried the keys.
All four keys worked in the door flawlessly.
Believe It, Or Not!
