A year ago, I bought this really nice professional filing cabinet with 5 drawers at the swap for an unbelievable $20.00. I have all my important papers filed in it. It didn’t have a key, but that wasn’t a problem because it didn’t have a key to lock it. Right?! Well, it finally locked itself this time I used it and I can’t open it anymore. I don’t know how or why it happened. I’ve finally come to the realization that I’ll just have to tear the lock up in order to open it. What a shame, because it doesn’t have a scratch and looks so nice.

I suppose I can accept disfiguring the filing cabinet that’s in mint condition, but what about the over 1,000 vintage safe I purchased a while ago? I paid a tow truck to tow it to my house. I paid a lock smith to figure out the combination. I paid these guys to bring it into the den. I put all my worldly possessions, such as my favorite gumball machine, my George Bush doll that doesn’t talk anymore (thank GAWD!), a couple of my rubber ducks, my Retirement Fund jar with quarters to the rim, my Smash-Me Bernie Madoff Doll, and something else which I can’t remember.

Hah! I lost the little piece of paper where I wrote the combination!

I think the time has come for this diabetic bitch to go on a shopping spree for oodles and oodles of all her favorite chocolate candy then rent a motel and O.D. on chocolate.

Hadn't seen your reply, but apparently we are thinking alike. A locksmith might even be able to put a new lock with key on it!

I'll have to put one on hold for the time being. Although, the locksmith that figured out the combination the first time, charged me a very reasonable amount, I'll just have to wait a few weeks.

The filing cabinet is the one that must be broken in since I have my passport and credit card in it.

I know it would cost money, but no chance at all to call a locksmith?

For the safe, I'll definitely have to get one - again! :o(

You are making this harder than it is.
have a party! get a good pair of stethoscope and let everyone take a stab at picking the lock. The winner who opens the safe, gets a special prize.

Then afterwards IF no one can do it, call a locksmith.

Re: You are making this harder than it is.
I'm still thinking, but I probably end up breaking the little lock on my filing cabinet. As for the over 1,000 pound safe, I'll just have to wait a while, since they charge quite a bundle!

The party sounds good to me!

I've missed you so much, and I'm so happy you're here again.

Make posts so I can read them!
Smooch!

My month it going off the deep end too. I know I am still upright at 560 blood sugar. So lets go for a 1000 with a nice soothing coma at the end.

Hugs my darling friend!

Nope it actually hangs around 108 these days, but a the sugar trip over the edges still sounds better than reality.

Oh god, that's a pretty farcical dilemma! Let me know how it goes and good luck.

It sure is! One because of my fault, and the other because of some mysterious happening, like my Shadow People! :o)

I'll make a post when I get both filing cabinet and safe open.

Some file cabinets have a release on the front bottom ( underneath ), so you need to tilt it back. Can't hurt to check, just be careful of your fingers.

Are you really a diabetic?

I read this too late to try it!! grrr

The key part has already been pulled out. I show a pic of the before and after filing cabinet.

Yes, I'm a diabetic.
