So yeah, after running after one of the guys in my flat for banging on my door, I got locked out. For the fourth time.

Now I'm getting a "Written Warning" from a Senior Warden xD

How many times have you been locked out?



And can anyone think of a way around paying the fine :curious:? All the security guys do is sit on there arses in that security hut, kind of annoys me. The people in the old accommodation don't have this problem.

Apparently the money from the fines doesn't actually even go to the security guards

*sigh*
Step 1: Attach key to lanyard
Step 2: Secure lanyard to beltloop on jeans
Step 3: Key is now always securely attached to you

Can't you just call one of your friends to let you in? It's not that hard.. I've managed to get myself locked out of my corridor once but 30 seconds later someone let me in. My keycard is in my wallet which I take pretty much everywhere with me.

Usually happens at night, when I'm not wearing jeans haha.

I don't understand? It's my room I get locked out of?

Indeed, it goes to Halls Office.

Not being rude, but what's the point of chasing after him. Stay in your room and ignore the guy. After some time, once he realises you aren't going to respond to the door, he'll get bored and leave it alone. This works on immature kids, I'm pretty sure it'll work on him.

Oh my bad. We have normal keys for our rooms and keycards to get into the building/our corridors. How can you forget your keycard when you can't get into your room without it? It's not that hard to condition yourself to take it every time.

It was just a bit of a joke thing, he's my mate haha.

I don't usually, but one time was at half 3 in the morning when I woke up and went to get some water, and the last time I just ran out without thinking.

You can't get round the fines but can't you put your door on the latch?

Yeah you can, can't remember exactly how to do it, but I remember doing it all the time, just don't let the door slam when you do it though, seem to remember hearing about someone getting fined cause they let the door slam too much and it broke the frame or something. Always kept my keycard in my wallet and don't think I ever locked myself and I didn't have to take the card out of the wallet either, just held it up to the sensor thingy:cool:

If it's in his cupboard how will that help him when he's locked out of the room? :P

His cupboard is a portal to Narnia. All he needs to do is enter somebody else's cupboard to retrieve the card.
