I Feel Sooo Stupid!! My Worst Nightmare Came True!
Well, tonight my worst nightmare regarding the RV came true.....
Here is a background on why it happened. We have a small leak in the back toilet (or something like that), so we have the city water line off, and only use the water from our holding tanks for now until Walt gets back and fixes it. So when we need to flush the toilet or wash our hands or the dishes, we turn on the water pump so that the water is pumped to the faucet, etc. Well, we filled the water tank the night before Walt left for Sacramento. But just in case, he showed my how to refill it.
Well, I miss checked the tank reader and I thought that my water was empty!! So I grabbed the key ring that I needed to unlock the storage area, that has our water hose in it. I also grabbed my key ring that has the RV keys on it. You see, I like to lock the top lock while Walt is away for security reasons. But it can only be locked/unlocked with the key from the outside.
So I was getting ready to go outside to refill the water tank, and decided to check the gauges again. Luckily for me, I realized that I miss read them, and I didn't need to go outside after all. So I laid both sets of keys down and stayed inside.....getting the picture yet????
Well, tonight Walt called me as he does every night that he is away, and we were talking. He was asking me about the weather here, so I opened up the door to look outside, and noticed how nice it was. So I grabbed my keys and went outside to finish the conversation, sitting on my gravity new lounge chair while watching the Sunset. Walt decided it was time to go to bed, as he is getting over a cold. I decided to sit outside for a bit longer.
But once I went to go inside, I pulled out the keys from my pocket and (you guessed it by now I am sure), I had the wrong keys!!!! So I was locked out of the RV! I figured that I had two choices.
1) keep my mouth shut, wait until full dark, to hide my shame and embarrassment (after all, I was shoeless, bra less and my hair was super dirty and oily....) and carry my lounge chair into the closest bathroom/shower room, and lock myself into the large Handicap Shower Stall (since it is large enough to lay all the way back in my chair) to sleep for the night. At least I would have water to drink from the faucet if I was desperate, and a bathroom to use. However, the light would stay on all night. Then in the morning, carry the chair back and place it under our RV Fifth Wheel, so that it would be in the shade, and stay there until Walt returned, which would be somewhere between 3pm-7pm tomorrow!!
Or 2) Call Walt, get his input and look into calling a Locksmith to come out to unlock my door for me. This was my preferred choice, but I wanted it approved by Walt first. So after walking up to the RV's Clubhouse, and having a group of men and women playing cards, see me in my state of dishevelment, so that I could look up local Locksmith's in the phone book, I called and managed to get one to come out. Thank God, he was here within a half hour. And it only cost me $75!! Well, I won't be making this mistake again!! LOL Yes, I can laugh about it now.....So how was your day/night?? Hopefully better than mine was. And yes, this is a true story that happened to me tonight. Till next time....
