Thank God for my rescuers: When the key failed to turn

Oh my! What a moment but thank God my dear neighbour Sandra was there to the rescue. I really do not know what I would have done if she had not been around.

One of the locks on my condo's door had been problematic for quite some time now but on this fateful day it gave up the ghost and the key failed to turn.

So, with my lunch in hand, which included a drink, I knocked at Sandra's door and she answered. Sandra was so very helpful. She took my lunch from my hand and placed it on her dining room table and then she called the management office.

Jennifer from the management office came up right away and soon our Super, Nick, was on the scene. He sprayed my lock and that worked like a charm. Soon the key was turning smoothly.

I could have been in huge difficulty were it not for Sandra's assistance and then Jennifer and Nick. For me, as a vision- impaired person, I need to ensure that I make provisions for any type of eventuality that I can easily foresee. It may not always be possible but I need to keep on top of things as best as I can.

This could have happened to anyone, but when you are unable to use your sense of sight to help yourself, then here is where good neighbours and friends are so very important.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day!
