I lost my house key, TWICE. This happened while my mother was hospitalised. Just to recap, I have lost my phone TWICE during my high school years. It traumatised me so much that whenever I couldn’t find my phone I’d panic a lil. So dramatic haha.
Why losing my house key is so terrifying you ask? Because I don’t have any spare keys. Plus even if I do, it’ll be in the house where I can’t even enter in the first place. The first time it happened is on a Sunday afternoon. I had just finished running errands from morning and the last task I have to do is go to the Carwash. Feeling excited to go home after waiting for 40 minutes for my car’s turn, to only realise that I don’t have my house key. I searched like hell and I just couldn’t remember where I’d lost it. So I go back to the Carwash, and there it was, lying on the floor right at the spot where I parked before. Phewww, luck was on my side this time.
The second time happened on the next day, on Monday, around 6pm after work. I reached home to find that I had lost my fucking keys, AGAIN. This time the panic is real yo. I think I searched like hell around and in my car, trying to trace back my steps, calling my colleague to see if I had left my keys at the office, brainstorming how the fuck am I supposed to solve this shit. To add more of the panic, I also bought an online movie ticket of Infinity War at 9:15pm, on the same night. Can you imagine having to rush for a solution before the movie starts??! I drive for 25 mins to a locksmith in Tesco, asked if he can make a key by looking at the picture I took of the padlock and grill gate. Nope, cannot, it’s impossible.
I was so desperate that I asked him whether he got any cutting tools that I can borrow. The locksmith does have an outdoor staff for this kind of case but they aren’t available at night time plus the cost is exorbitant. Around MYR90 on normal working hours, even more after. I AIN’T GONNA PAY FOR THAT! I already have a lot on my plate. He suggested the fire station.
Fuck fuckety fuck. I’d never imagine myself doing that as I always despise those who called the firefighter for such petty things, for example, my case. God, now I am one of those. Alright so remember the Infinity War ticket? Am I gonna ditch the movie and waste MYR16 for this? HELL NO! Guess what, knowing that my only solution is the firefighter, I decided to go watch the movie first. It was full house and full of kids, also full of stupid people who doesn’t silent their phone AND text during the movie. Add that to my pile of regrets. Am I the only one who didn’t cry watching Infinity War? I find it weird because I am a fan of the previous movies and I watched almost everything. ‘Nutsack chin’got me though 🤣
Movie ended around 11:40pm. I am so nervous having to go the the fire station and brace the embarrassment of it. Turns out the fire station had a counter with firemen doing their shift. I disturbed a guy watching videos with my shit. I apologised a lot for troubling them for such petty things, but they didn’t make any expression or complain. Phewww. They followed my car all the way to my house (luckily they used a van and not the big ass vehicle) and managed to break both the padlock and grill gate. I gave MYR20 for them both for duit ngeteh and was happily accepted.
But….once they were done and wanted to leave, one of them drove to a dead end (which I mentioned, the road on the left of my house is a dead end, you can’t go there) but he did and while attempting to make a U-turn, the van got stuck. The tyres were stuck in the dirt and trust me when I say they did at least 5 attempts to reverse the van but failed. Can you imagine how funny the situation is 😂 Finally they called for backup from the fire station to come and help them. I bid adieu and slept.
I never found my house key again nor do I want it to be found.
D.R.I.P house key. (Don’t Rest In Peace)
