Locked Out: A Thriller
Ok, I promised myself I wouldn’t get on Tumblr during finals season but this is too good and plus it’s a post not scrolling endlessly through my dash so it doesn’t count…right?
Today the nightmare of every dorm-ie happened to me.
The odyssey begins in my room. Picture yourself. You have just ran. You are sweaty, and desperately need to stop delaying your studying. You reasonably decide that changing back into sweaty clothes after a shower would be counter productive. That is your fatal flaw. Wrapped in your towel you head to the shower and pick up your caddy left there.
Fifteen minutes later. Less sweaty, more clean. You begin to head back to your dorm room to begin one of three essays.
Maybe you’ve just forgotten how to open doors. You try again. Nope, it’s definitely locked. A sort of primal shriek can be heard escaping your lips. Luckily, your friend who was just walking innocently on the other end of the hallway hears and offers you help.
The plan is simple: they run downstairs to the main office and ask for your key, pretending to be you. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately…?) security here is way too tight for that and they end up returning defeated having been cross-examined by the desk clerk.
Quickly changing into some of your friends clothes you head downstairs again with them, and this time the sight of a bedraggled Zippy with still wet hair, clutching a towel in borrowed sweatpants manages to convince the attendant that this is in fact not a heist, but a rescue mission.
Key in hand, we return triumphant to the third floor, and the Zippy is able to begin studying and instead… gets on Tumblr,
TL;DR: Don’t forget your keys when showering. And if you do, at least have clothes…
These would be funnier if they didn’t actually impact our futures…
Mission get wifi is complete!!
And this time it actually works!
What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at then?
