Thankful Thursday: Locked Out Again!

Manny, chillin' in the recycle bin
Tuesday night, I stood next to The Hubby in the kitchen, gave him a peck on the cheek, and advised him that I was going outside to check on The 'O' Cats.

It's now pretty dark outside at 9:00 pm.  Sweetie and Paddy O'Malley ran up to join me, and got some pets and lovin' and some kibble.  I freshened their water bowl, bid them goodnight, and walked back to the front door.

The door was locked.

I rang the doorbell.
I knocked on the door.
I rang the doorbell some more.
I knocked louder.

No movement from inside the house.


I could see Manny sitting in the recycle bin, and he watched me casually.  

He wouldn't open the door for me.

I rang the doorbell more...ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong...
I knocked on the wall...bam bam bam bam bam
I yelled!

Finally, The Hubby looked through the glass on the front door, saw me, and unlocked it.

"What the hey!?!" I said.  He grumbled something about thinking I was upstairs.  

*head shake*  WHAT?

Manny didn't move a whisker, so I snapped photos of him.  Chili Bruce was looking out another window the whole time, watching for critters that use our driveway as a path.  Angel, upstairs, was contentedly sprawled on her chair.

This time, I was sorta mad.  I had TOLD HIM.  He apologized.  I wasn't much mollified.

Today, I am thankful that I got back inside, and that it wasn't freezing cold like the last time (see blog post at the top.)  

From now on, I carry my keys with me, no matter where I roam!

  1. Dang! Taking your keys is a pretty good idea since everyone ignores your plight! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. We've all done this one and it's awful. What's really bad is when no one else is home and you have to wait and wait. Done that one too. I'm thankful you got back in so easily.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  3. Wow! Yep, definitely carry the keys from now on!

  4. Glad you didn't have to wait too long to go back! Carrying key with you is definitely a great idea. Too bad Manny wouldn't open door for you. Though, if he did, you have a different problem :-D

  5. Oh no! I'm glad to see that Manny sprang into action to help. Haha! Lesson learned!

  6. guyz.....good job !!!! mom blamed dad again... like her shulda ;) on ta trix "B" !!!!!! ☺☺☺♥♥♥♥

  7. MOL ! Keys sounds like a great idea ! Purrs

  8. I learned to carry my keys with me at all times back when my niece was little and she locked me out when I went out to the mail box. :)

  9. They sure don't help! And having been in your shoes with the Admiral calmly assessing me from within while I was without in my nightgown in the broad day light...I can feel how you felt!

  10. Aww, you need to grow some claws so you can "remind" hubby that he should pay attention to bells and pounding! Or maybe somekitty would lend you a helpful paw!

  11. It's the best thing to do. I take my keys when I go out too. Taking the cats for a walk in the Lane, I've been locked out and a note on the kitchen island which I can barely see from the sliding glass door. I don't get upset when something more interesting than waiting for me to get inside happens.

  12. Yikes! I'm glad that you got back inside before it got too dark. ♥

  13. I've locked me out several times but (thankfully) no one was it. Sadly I nearly broke a window getting in but it all worked out MOL!!!!

  14. OMC How Pawful fur you. You could also carry a fone with ya' so you could call and yell at all of 'em fur lockin' ya' outside. Bless your heart. Big hugs

    Luv ya'
