So this is a bit embarrassing but last night on our way out to meet up for dinner with Ben, Kate and I locked ourselves out of the apartment. (face is red). We went down to the supers apt and after a lot is panicy loud knocking his wife (?) answered in her night gown and told us in broken english “no key”. So we went back to our door and decided to ask our neighbors for advice. Gary in 13 suggested we call Robert the landlord. We did and he said it was cool, he’d put his kids to bed and head back to the office to get a spare key. I said for him to take his time we would go to dinner and then we could meet up and get the key. As we finished dinner Robert called back and to my chagrin he didnt have a spare key and suggested I try to jimmy the door open with a credit card. I laughed and said I didn’t have any experience with that but I’d give it a try. Turns out we have an anti jimmy bar on our door so no luck. So, I called Robert back and he was going to call his locksmith to drill it out. After some back and forth it turned out Robert agreed to come out himself and help us out. I posted a boring video of the deed. It was really great of him to come help us. By the time he got there it was 1am. After the break on Rob stayed around to have a beer with us (as seem in video) and talk about the building. Turns out he’s going to co-op the building with in the year or so and all the tennants will have the chance to buy at a insider rate. The good thing is if you pass on the buy they don’t kick you out like in Savannah. He also gave us a bit of insight on the building. All and all it worked out for the best. It was great to meet the Robert and what a great guy coming out so late to help us out. We are still pretty embarrassed

    This is the stupidest video ever. I started crying out of sheer boredom.

    That was the goal! It must be oscar worthy if it was able to trigger such emotion!
