Having lived through a burglary, and as most apartment locks seem to be purchased from the dollar store, I am in the habit of changing locks when I move.  This means Joey, a very skinny locksmith with an indiscernible accent, has been following me around Brooklyn.

1st time with locksmith: He gives me a lecture about how to use the front door.

2nd time with locksmith: He asks me to review him on Yelp.

3rd time with locksmith: He asks me out for ice cream.

I’m, like, a native!
