The Keys To Stupidity

| Working | August 19, 2015

(I work at a reception desk and am often handed lost property. An employee approaches me with a car key.)

Employee: “I’ve just emailed you a picture of a car. I found these keys in the door.”

(After sending the email to the staff, Employee and I realize the keys may not belong to a person that works in our building, as we share parking spaces with other businesses. Employee writes a note and leaves to stick it on the car. Meanwhile I take a closer look at the keys.)

Me: *to Employee when he comes back* “These keys have an address and home phone number attached to them.”

Employee: “Really?”

Me: “As well as another key that’s probably to their house. I’ve just realised that if we were less that honest people, we’d have everything we need to break into their house.”

Employee: “Oh, my god.”

Me: “We could even call ahead to make sure no one’s home.”
