I do love this particular subreddit.

If I understood the objections of the guy on the outside, he says that he was practicing how to open his own door by opening this guy’s door.

The logic of this escapes me. Do I need to do more meth to understand?

Reminds me of this scene from Burglar ( a Whoopi movie that apparently no one but me liked:)

Wasn’t he just cleaning the lock? Asking for a friend…

He swore to God. That settles it.

“Dude, I swear I wasn’t doing anything.” is the least believable excuse since Shaggy’s “Wasn’t Me”.

Before my time.

I’ve seen W. Kamau Bell walking around there, though…

I know that we should avoid physically engaging miscreants, but I really really REALLY wanted to see the resident grab one of the lock picker’s rubber slippers and slap him upside the head a few times.

Just on grounds of stupidity alone

There’s parts of this country where they would have let him succeed in breaking in and then greeted him with something more than a well-justified slap or three.

Working in Singapore one year I was in my hotel room, just settling down for the day when the door started to open, stopped by the chain. I got up and walked over to watch this guy trying to get past this chain by reaching through the gap and sliding the end of the chain along. Being SG I decided not to give them a big scare, I just pushed the door closed which generated a bunch of “woha” noises from the corridor.

You are not alone.

I love that he tries to compose himself and be “real” between slaps. Then it’s right back to whining.
