I can also give an example of locking things inside with the key in there also.
A couple of years ago i decided to resign from the army reserves, and i had to spend 5 days at civilian service center. It turned out to be a great
experience but didn't start so well
I took the bus there, and i was told that my room will be in the fourth floor. So i get there and my roommate for the next five days was already
there, we shook hands and introduced ourselves and everything was ok. So first evening i got tired after welcome lectures, good food, and the
travelling there in the first place.
I put all my belongings to one of the closets there and locked the closet door. Key in jeans pockets, jeans in the locked closet, all i had was boxer
shorts on and a huge
above my head. So i understood i got 2 options. Just walk proudly with boxer shorts on from 4th floor to the 1st where the
staff was. Or actually those who were doing their civilian service instead of army. Or, wait for my roommate to come back from wherever and tell him
the whole thing and ask if he could go explain the situation for me
I chose the latter, and soon he came back to our room. I was like "Dude, i
locked all my stuff to the closet and all i have is boxers, could you go ask around a bit if anyone has a really strong cutting tool somewhere."
So he was happy to help and the next morning some other dude showed up and cut my lock to pieces. Well of course i said something like "Sorry to cause
you extra work" and he was like "No worries, man, it happens to a one or a few newbies everytime they come here."
In a nutshell why i was there, is that when army is done, and one wishes to resign from reserves, 5 days had to be spent at civilian service center.
Monday - friday. Many like-minded people. Very diverse. When it was meal time there were great vegetarian and vegan options too. Great speeches. 3
different types of courses to go through it, i chose environmental issues and human rights. After the daily conversations and speeches were over, some
people left to bars nearby but i decided that i can drink back home then, and take everything out of this week sober. It was a great week, i would go
second time right now if it was possible.
