Friday AM. Had to be at work early. One of the girls on our side of the office was going to be out. Got there right on time. Walk through plant, which is alive and busy, and into the dark office. Turn on lights, unlock door, get paper work out of locked filing cabinet, change out backup tapes. My, oh, my! It's time our front door should be open, but corporate is still dark. Hum. Well, I'll just open up the door between them and us and turn on some lights, see if I can find out how to dis-arm the alarm so I can open the front door.
Turn key in door. Open. Two steps in I hear "beep, beep, beep, beep...." UH, OH! So no one told me the inside door was on the system!!! Run turn on lights. No cheat sheets by the alarm box. Dash into office. Call co-worker for the code. Co-worker's phone dies of battery failure right after she gives me the third of four necessary numbers in the code. Now we have upgraded to a full scale siren blaring through the office and plant! Yippee! Here comes the production manager. No, he doesn't have the code, but he has the GM on speed dial.
Code is secured, annoying alarm is turned off. Call is placed before the police are summoned.
Corporate secretary comes in. Not too happy. Heard the siren outside. She got me squared away with all the necessary info though. I'm forgiven, I think. But if I ever do it again, I may be in jeopardy!
Thankfully, the rest of the day went smooth as chicken poop!
