ABC Wednesday - Unlocked



U is for Unlocked.............



an unlocked combination lock



My son came home from the hardware store with a deal too good to refuse.

It was such a good quality lock, solidly made, hardened steel, the list goes on....

There was only one problem - no combination to get it opened - hence the great deal.

No problem, says my husband, we can just keep trying different combos till we get it.

I wanted no part of it - no time for that nonsense!

Bless my daughter's heart, while watching TV, she was fiddling with it, starting with the higher numbers rather than the lower ones - and surprise - she got it!

Persistence pays off as they like to remind me!

  2. Ok until she forgets it again _ I used to have several credit cards but don't use most of them now as I can't remember the pin numbers.

  3. What a stroke of luck! I wonder what the odds are of happening upon the right combination?

  4. Wow! With all the different combos, it's a miracle she got it so fast! Hope you wrote it down fast, too. :D

  7. My hubby said 'piece of cake'. He works in a hardware store and even the £30 ($60) combination locks can't keep him out. His boss was gobsmacked to say the least!

    He says it was because he kept forgetting the combo for his bicycle lock as a kid so he learnt how to fiddle them!
