R.I.P. Joe Rein

I got locked inside (yes inside) my flat about 15 years ago - old skool lock, the key just wouldn't turn and had to get a locksmith out. £165.A new fucking lock on the front door. Like a complete prick I went to let the plumber out of the building, as he needed to go and get materials to fix a pipe in the kitchen, door never closes without pulling it, but it did yesterday. Locked myself out. Locksmith comes along after I call one, can't get in the usual way due to some double latch safety feature, and now the plumber who is now being paid by the 15 minutes or so is back and waiting to get in.
Locksmith has to drill the fucking lock through, get in, remove the whole thing and fit a new one. A nice £260 for the privilege of having a door that works just like it always had done before I decided to be helpful and show the plumber to the door of the block of flats. Without doubt the most annoying spend ever.
