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."
