Sometimes people say things and I don’t even have a suitable response because it is so ridiculous!!!
When we have events at our venue we give the renter a key and then they are supposed to lock up after the event and drop the key in a mail drop box on the door – super easy!!!
Wednesday, late in the afternoon, I met a lady at the venue who had the place booked for the evening.
After a jam packed day, I finally sat down to relax (read blogs!!) about 7:00 pm.
At 8:00 the lady who had rented the venue called me. She said that she had a small problem. “The key walked off.”
What?! How does that even happen???
She said that she had looked everywhere. After telling her there would be a charge if it didn’t turn up by the next day I told her that she could leave and I would head over to lock up (20 minutes each way).
Hunter rode with me to lock up. We did a quick walk-through of the place to look for the key. It was in plain site on the kitchen counter!!!
While I was happy to find the key so that I didn’t have to change the locks, I was beyond frustrated!!! I had already spent most of the day working over there and then the rest of the day playing “mom taxi” since I’m solo parenting this week!!
Oh, well – at least the key ran back home!!!
