There is a door in my building that goes down to the basement. It has a lock on it, but none of the people living here have a key to it. For some reason, someone locked it from the inside, went out the basement back door, came around and back in the front door and then broke a key off in the lock. Can anyone explain that to me?? Why would someone do that?? So, because our keys have never worked in the back basement door (even though they are supposed to) I couldn’t get to our washer and dryer in the basement. Eventually the landlord came and took care of it. It wasn’t that big of a deal, but I’m just so confused about it. There are only 4 apartments in my building, so it’s not like it could have been just anyone.
