Just a thought

The next time you lock yourself out on your sundeck in the middle of the night, call the locksmith. Don't call your friend, crying and sobbing, don't pound on the glass waking up the entire building, don't sob and scream and complain about how you just want to go inside. CALL THE LOCKSMITH. YOU locked yourself out on your deck and YOU made everyone suffer for it. Some of us had to work the next day. God help you if you ever face a real problem in your life.

Did it occur to anyone who heard this commotion to try to contact the person and reassure them or help in any way? Sure, I understand that people were disturbed from their sleep, but obviously they were extremely distressed so they needed help! I've noticed a very disturbing trend lately, of people who seem only to care about themselves and who would never think to try to understand what the other person is going through. We all need help sometimes and obviously they needed it! Oh and by the way, it's not as easy as you think to just "call a locksmith" in the middle of the night! What if you don't have reception? What if, as happens ALL the time, said locksmith has an answering service and doesn't bother to return the call? The majority of them don't do 24/7. (I happen to know this due to my profession). Also, any after hours call out can be prohibitively expensive and maybe this person didn't have the money, and of course, if they were locked outside they probably didn't have their credit card handy so even if they did find a company they may not have been able to provide the necessary information for that company to agree to attend. So my point is that instead of being a self-absorbed ass, perhaps try some empathy instead.

Fuck this shit.

Obviously the complainant has never been locked out, in a panic.

Next time, help her. Maybe her apartment door was unlocked so a neighbour could have gone down to open the door from the inside. Or called the building manager for her, or tossed her a blanket till her roommate got home.
You need to chill out because one day, you're going to need help in some way too.

There were no shortage of offers to help from multiple tenants. This went on for nearly 3 hours. This unit is always loud and partying and shows no respect for the rest of the building. Landlords do nothing. I understand your point about the locksmiths but my main point in writing this is that this person could have handled being locked out in a much more considerate and mature way and still gotten themselves back inside. You can continue to insert as many variables to counterpoint my confession but you weren't there and you don't live here.

You're right, I didn't panic. Have definitely been locked out.

Does one get locked out of ones own place on the deck?

Very easily!!! It happens to me regularly (I have a system in place now) and no I'm not partying or drunk... just really really dense!
