05 Dec Luggage Lock
We did have a stranger than usual job today. I was working in the van in my driveway when a taxi appeared out the front. It reversed into the driveway and a man got out to ask if I was the locksmith. He had just flown in to Adelaide and upon arriving in Adelaide he realised that he had locked the padlock on his suitcase with the keys inside.
He asked the taxi driver to google a local locksmith on the way from the airport to his house, and arrived in my driveway. He retrieved his bag from the boot of the taxi and asked me to simply cut the padlock from his suitcase. It was far too small to pick. I got out the trusty bolt cutters and cut it off. He produced his keys, paid the bill and got back in the taxi and continued on his way home.
