Locks are destroying my life
Thursday, November 08, 2012
My gym membership is great; I get full access to the equipment and classes, full towel service, and a permanent locker, with a combo lock. And that’s where the problem lies. I have very limited exposure to these kinds of locks, in High School we were allowed to use keyed locks; so to put it mildly, I lack skill in it's use.
I don’t understand exactly what I’m doing wrong. I know the combo by heart. I carefully dial in all the numbers just as the desk girl showed me; however, it only seems to work once in every twenty (or more tries). I spent about fifteen minutes this morning fighting with my dang lock. That was fifteen minutes out of my work out that I spent standing in the locker room swearing at my locker like a crazy person!
I’m pretty sure I can substitute their combo lock with a keyed lock, however, I have to buy the keyed lock from the gym (I can’t use my own), which sucks. But if it gets me to the workout on time, and saves me the, “stay away from the crazy woman” looks, it’ll be worth the $15 bucks.
