Good afternoon guys. I just thought I'd give a bit of insight into how as a locksmith, it's sometimes the right to 'do the neighbourly thing'. Now, I'm pretty sure that in life we all do things for other people out of the goodness of our hearts? That's just part of our makeup as humans, or at least that's how I would like to view life/us.
So then, to the point of this post. As I was locking up my van on the driveway the other day, a neighbour across the street attracted my attention with what he was doing. I pondered for a minute whether or not there was an issue, or whether my sixth sense was twanged unnecessarily. I couldn't not go over there and ask if the guy was in trouble or not, as I just mentioned it's just a part of human nature to go to someone you think needs your help!!
As I was heading over there, I watched as the guy who'd been at the door trying to get in lifted the toddler with him, and passed her through the small passageway window of the house. I knew for sure then that my particular skill set was needed.
As I walked down the path I heard the neighbour curse as the front door lock was too high for the toddler to reach and open up the door. Anyway, I announced myself and offered to let the guy in as I'm a locksmith.
I used my tool that I put through a letterbox to open up the front door, with zero damage and it takes literally seconds (the amount of folk who ask if I'll sell them that tool is a whole other story). After gaining access, I said goodbye and came back home. It felt good to have done the neighbourly thing, and I'm pretty sure I'd sent great vibes out for me and the company!
