A few minutes ago I heard a cry for help coming from my neighbors back porch. I have a townouse so her unit adjoins mine. She locked herself out of her back door while having a smoke. our porches are on the second story. I climbed off my porch, shimmied up the drin pipe leading to her house, and carried he on my back down a vertical drainpipe 2 stories on with her on my back. When I got her to the ground I asked her how she was going to get in her house. She replied "the front door isn't locked". Apparently she didn't understand the concept of me just walking in her front door and opening her porch door to let her in.

I don't expect everyone to be a rocket scientist, but really? She seemed fairly smart (before tonight) Smile

Not really that smart. She still smokes. Smile

You did that with your neck in the shape it is?

Good story.

My neck is okay. I was just concerned because I broke it in 2009 and it started cracking a few days ago. The doctor at the ER said my neck is fine despite the sound it makes.

It could have been worse tonight. My neighbor is kind cute and she was wearing a pair of short shorts. I wasn't really complaining all that much...lol.

Listen, Frank, this ain't like the real world.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Should'a called a locksmith, watched him walk thru the front door and charge her $120. That would have wised her up fast.

Hehe... My first thought was to call the fire department, but it just seemed easier the way I did it and it only took about 5 minutes. Who knows, maybe I'll need a favor in return someday. She's not that big. She probably weighs 80 pounds soaking wet.

I had almost the opposite event happen to me. The upstairs neighbor had locked her front door with her 2 year old kid inside. She was frantic. Her back door was open, she just couldn't get to it. I was in better shape then and could get up on her balcony from the railing of my own. Climbed up, went in her back door and got her front door open.

I actually don't think of her as a friend. I bought this place 5 years ago and said hello to her maybe 2 or 3 times in passing.

When a kid is involved, people freak out. If a kid was trapped on that porch instead of her, I probably would have had my behind on that porch in 30 seconds instead of a few minutes.

Never regret regardless of the outcome as long as you are being true to your nature it is all good.


The real question is: What was she smoking??

A few times, when I helped an emotionally-needy underdog who then became clingy.

"Ever regretted helping someone in need?"

Only briefly the two times I got punched, but I got over it.
