Decoding my helmet lock

Enough of a long break to my blog and yes!! I have a story of my own experience. I dint have an eye to see the stories around me as I was real busy in my wedding preparations.

I was crowned a loser this week. List of things lost-
    1.     Point and shoot camera
    2.     Bike keys and expensive papers called money.

I appointed a crew at home to find my point and shoot and the search is still on. The pointer 2 is done and dusted.

Next day, I continued my journey to office with the help of duplicate keys .As I am a sincere kid who abides government rules, I had to get my helmet lock unlocked. And the chronicle of decoding the helmet lock begins. 

The two KEY people in this play of decoding machine should be introduced and these two people are the sweetest and obedient people I have met till date.

      Murthy Sir.
      Gowda Sir.

To make the understanding easier I will use terms as M, G and L (that’s me the loser in this play) going further.

9.45 AM: “L” enters the workstation worried about unlocking her helmet lock. “G” sees “L” in worry and asks the cause of the tension around and explains that he will help in taking the bike to the key maker, unlock the helmet lock and also assures to put a new lock to the helmet.

10 AM: “L” is very happy that she found a solution and gets back to work.

10.15 AM: “G” calls and updates that to break open the helmet lock; the key maker is charging 150 Rs. This tickles the saving brains of “L” as she had already lost some expensive papers; she didn’t want to get into losing some more and instructed “G” to come back.

10.30AM: As “G” was called for some work from other colleague, he passed on the keys to “L” through someone passing by to her work station. “L” was still worried about the decoding machine.

11.00AM: A ray of hope comes to “L” as “M” enters and says that he can cut open the helmet lock and for silly things why go to a key maker?

11.15 AM: “L” is super happy as “M” comes and tells her that the helmet lock is cut open and her helmet is free.

11.15 AM to 6.30 PM-“L” is relieved and happily working.

6.30 PM: The actual play unveils as “L” reaches her bike and finds out that there is no new helmet lock in the bike. “L” calls “G” to make sure no new lock was put and gets to know about the new lock. “L” tries to find this magical lock.

6.45 PM: “L’s” brilliant brain works and thinks back the whole play. 

·        “G” tells the key maker to cut open the old lock for which he was charging 150 Rs but when the key maker heard about putting the new lock, he did not take any money to cut open the old lock.

·        Miscommunication- “L” heard only about the unlocking when “G” called her and she refused to cut the lock, “G” forgot to inform “L” about key maker’s new offer.

·        “G” leaves the helmet in the new lock and hurries to his work, passing on the keys to “L” through someone passing by “L’s” work station.

·        Once the keys were back to “L”, the obedient and heroic “M” cuts open the new lock which was put by the key maker in replacement of the old lock as he thought that existing one was an old lock.

·        Total loss to Miss saving brains “L”- old lock 150+ new lock- 150.

Laughing at my own fate I learnt that whatever has to go will go some or the other way no matter how much brilliant you are.

I was broken into more laughter when the security comes and explains about the struggle of “M” in breaking the helmet lock.

This is how my chronicle of "Decoding the helmet lock" ends.
