This is a blog to tell the (slightly changed and anonymised) stories that this locksmith sees. I’m wondering what the public reaction will be, and I await comments with interest.
I’ve written a few bits already, I’ll be adding them shortly. Today’s story, coming on the very verge of Christmas, is very sad, and somewhat indicative of the times. And it is one of the few jobs that I hate.
A lovely little old lady, burgled while she slept. The thief climbed in through a window that had been left ajar, and helped himself* to the presents. Obviously she was very upset, so I changed the front door lock, since a key was missing. I also taught her how to deadlock the nightlatch, and fitted alarm units to help ensure that no more sneak-thievery could occur.
*Statistically, most burglars are males and young.
