I was called upon to assist my neighbour a few weeks ago. I hold a spare key for their house so that if they’re away form home and their house alarms sounds, I can enter and deal with it. Well one weekend, the chap rang in a froth, asking me to hand over the key to a friend who needed to get in to retrieve the neighbour’s spare car keys as he’d lost his whilst out shopping at a major venue. The key didn’t actually work, so eventually chappie came home in a taxi expecting to have to break in to his own house. I spotted to other opportunities – both involved dragging a table over and propping a rickety ladder up to reach an open ensuite window – the other allowed him to prop the ladder more safely against the very substantial outdoor lighting support – what you call a beacon of hope!
