So, I just got back from Greenville, SC last night and got back to my apartment around about 2:00am. Yeah, late I know. Anyway, I walked from my car with all my travel stuff, into the building and up 3 flights of stairs to find out that my door did not work properly. I was able to unlock it, but I was unable to open it. I tried for a bit but the nob would not turn. After a couple minutes of trying I thought I would go try the back door. So I go down the stairs, outside and around the building and then up the back way. I open the screen door, and start to open the next door but of course I have chain locked this one. I thought maybe I could undo that if I used a piece of cardboard and bent it around the door so that I could push it as I pulled the door closed to get more slack on the chain, but I was unsuccessful. Then I thought maybe I could just ram the door down and hit it a few times (but not too hard, more just testing it to see). Then I decided that if I did hit it harder a few things would happen. I would wake the neighbors who would call the police and report me as breaking and entering. I would break the door and then not have any working door at all. Or I would break my shoulder and not have a working shoulder. I decided to leave that door, but thought about climbing to one of the windows and trying to jimmy rig that. Then I remembered that I live on the 3rd floor and decided that I did not want to die, or at least be injured really badly. So I called the maintenance man who did not answer and I decided to sleep in the car.
