OBSERVATION: Locksmiths overcharge.
Could not let this one go by. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that locksmiths are overcharging locked out people. We are talking about folks paying $500 to more than $1000 to get into their houses. I cannot imagine what these people are thinking. I have been locked out lots of times. Never cost me a dime to get in. I am thinking of going into a new business. If any of you get locked out, send me a mere $150, and I'll messenger you a brick to throw through your back window -- and Mapquest directions to your local hardware store. The first 100 customers will get a gift certificate to cover the cost of the new glass, but you have to install it yourself.
