Skills...

Napoleon Dynamite says girls love guys with skills. Bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills, ninja skills. With I guess my adventures this week might put me into that category. I travelled to a large town nearby to work with another branch of my office. I headed up a visit to close a business. The owner had emptied it out around midnight the night before and didn't open it that day. Our locksmith got out his handy lockpick gun and went to work. I took notes, although I already know how to use one. In about 5 minutes we were inside and he began changing the locks. The two police officers with us checked out the store to make sure it was vacant and safe, then the alarm went off. I worked with the locksmith to disable the alarm and returned the scene to peace and quiet. We tried calling the owner, but for some reason she didn't answer our calls. All in all, an interesting day.

Glad I don't do that often, but I wonder if I'll ever use my new skills.....

Maybe you could pick the lock on your car if you get locked out...that would be pretty sweet. :)

I agree that new skills are great, but I don't think I'd take Napolean Dynamite's advice on anything. :0)
