First they tried slipping it open with a tool but that didn't work, so, after realizing all the windows on my first floor are locked, they got out a ladder and she climbed up to check out the second floor windows. All locked. After some discussion, they decided the cheapest option would be to break out the big guns and cut off the knob. An ax, crowbar, and electric saw later, we had a knobless door.

trip to Lowe's?
|This has been in my purse ever since. Not sure why.|
|Moooom. Get IN here!|
The she neighbor volunteered the he neighbor to help me replace the knob but, being the stubborn homeowner that I am, I did it myself. I'm a handy lady, folks.
The creepiest part of this whole thing is that we had a ladder, heavy tools, electric saw, and three people essentially trying to break into my house and not one neighbor came out to make sure everything was okay. I didn't even notice any curtains rustle. Real great Community Watch, guys.
At least I know I have some nice, helpful neighbors...and some creepy ones.
Oh, I also built myself a bookshelf...
and began painting the wall in my upstairs hallway in stripes.

Have you ever met a neighbor in an unconventional way?
I like to make my clumsiness known at first impression. It's just easier that way.
