Had to wait for a locksmith? True Value Ace WalMart KMart Lowes and Home Depot as well as a few others sell replacement sets. In stock for your shopping convenience. If you don't know how to install them call a friend.
I slipped out the back bedroom door and gate and went to my neighbors. As I headed back to the house, a black small SUV drove past me going very fast.
Slip out the back then go back. Call 911 and wait at the neighbors? This sounds like an internet hoax. If it wasn't being related as the OP's coworker's wife I'd be very suspicious.
