Your Purse opens the DOOR?!

To get into the building at my work you have to swipe your ID tag in front of this SECURITY box and it beeps to let you know it has unlocked the doors and you can go in.


Most everyone wears their ID badge around their neck because it SUPPOSE to be required to have it dangling somewhere so people can identify that, in fact, YOU DO work there and are suppose to be roaming around the work place.

Ya know, sort of a SECURITY safety issue or something. :)

I don't wear my ID badge.  I carry it in the front of my purse so it is ready to whip out at a moments notice...I won't bore you with the details of why I don't have to wear my ID badge while practically everyone else 
does...let's just say, I'm SPECIAL. :)

So, because I'm lazy a genius, when I walk up to the Security Scanner Box to swipe my card in front of it, instead of taking it OUT of my purse, I just lift my purse up and wave it in front of the Security Scanner Box and it beeps and lets me in.

Well...the other day I was rushing towards my work building and as I approached the front door of the building, a girl from another department, we will call her LUCY,  got there about the same time as me...

I was slightly ahead of her so I just look over my shoulder and said, "Don't worry about getting your badge out, I'll get it".  So I lift my purse up and it beeps and lets us in.

The sweet, sweet, girl says, with a shocked expression on her face, "Your purse opens the door?!"

The first thing that pops into my head is, HERE's YOUR SIGN, as I start laughing and reach inside the front pocket of my purse and whip out my ID Badge.

"Oh, she says, I get it."

I probably would have said the same thing. Sigh.

LOL! That is too funny. I would probably have given you a sideways glance, said "what the heck" and then puzzled over it all morning until I had it figured out.

Susan said...

Funny! Isn't funny how lazy we can be?? Perfect solutions!

You guys give yourselves to LITTLE credit...honestly, if you use that card everyday...well...it's just funny either way! loL!

You'd be saying that to me a lot should be ever spend any time together. Wouldn't that be so darn fun?

Sher said...

Sounds like you have some real genius's working with you.

Jacky said...

That would have confused me! =) It would probably take me awhile to figure out that you had a card in your purse. =D

I'm totally jealous that you have a special card that lets you into work. I just have a plain old key.

Hey! That's how the oyster cards work for the uderground tubes in London! We just smacked our wallets down on the reader and it would let us through the gate.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Okay, now that I have laughed my guts out- why are you so special that you don't HAVE to wear your badge? I have to wear one to work too and I am a little curious how to go about getting that special privilege since my pic is NASTY!

J'Ollie Primitives said...

(heads off to eBay to search Magic Door-Opening Purse)....I want one!

Well security in a purse is better than a guy with one in his wallet sliding his butt up against the reader.

What color was her hair?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hee hee. Need more cowbell.

Okay, wait. Did I say that right?

Or was that MY sign?

My purse opens a lot of doors, btw. Especially now that it's candy apple red.

Hey where do you work?

Loralee and the gang... said...

Now you Gotta tell the story of why YOU don't have to wear your ID badge and everyone else does - or I will lay awake nights until you do! (It's got to be a good story, if it happened to you...)
:~D

hahahaha!!!! I didn't know that I had a twin!

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

You should have told her Why Yes it sure does!
She probably would have believed you :)

this is where I should pretend that I've never walked up to my front door and pressed the unlock button on my car key fob...

and I'm NOT blonde, I'd look awful as a blonde.

I think I would have just smiled and said "yep, you should see about getting one yourself" and gotten a REALLY long and funny post out of it!

I keep my card in my purse too and just lift my purse to unlock the door. The one male teacher at school keeps his card in his wallet and just kind of backs up to the swipe thingie. Maybe your co-worker would think his BUTT opens the door!!!
