Britni Akers and Destiny Turner have been locked out of their shared apartment twice in less than one month since entering Penn State Altoona on Sept. 5, 2018. The incident occurred again but this time in a whole new way.
Turner laughed and said, “This time it was left in her bedroom.”
Brittany Akers, a freshman at Penn State Altoona, has locked herself out the house twice in a week. The first lockout occurred when the two roomies wanted to get dinner at a local restaurant in Altoona (Red Lobster). It was not until Brittany arrived to her house and got into the main door that she noticed that she did not have her key to her bedroom door. Although she did not go into shock, Destiny could tell that Brittany was about to have a BF (B***h Fit), she said.
Before she could react. Brittany thought about her last place she had had her keys which was at Red Lobster. Brittany called the restaurant and asked if there were any keys left behind. The host who answered the phone said, “yes, but we will be closing soon.”
Brittany grabbed her phone and requested an Uber to the restaurant. Once she arrived, she was relieved that she made it just before closing time and she knew for sure that she did not have to sleep on a hard couch instead of her fully padded bed. Plus, she knew she was in the clear and would not have to pay a lockout charge to PennView for her lost keys.
One would think that Brittany had learned her lesson about keeping her keys close to her but this freshman is apparently is going to learn things the hard way. On Sept 8, 2018, Brittany had a couple of friends over for dinner and wanted everyone to be in one location. Brittany decided to close off all the rooms in the house that no one was in. The doors that were shut included her roommate’s room, Brittany’s own room and both of the bathrooms. Not knowing that her bedroom door has been twisted so that it would lock, she closed her door.
By the end of the night when everyone was packing up to leave, Brittany tried to enter her room. But her room door was locked and her key was locked inside of the room.
“I can’t believe I did this again,” she said as everyone around her started to laugh.
Thinking, Brittany said, “You know what – we have a long porch and I think I can climb through my window.”
Brittany and two other people rushed to the back of Penn View and saw that a climb would be her only option to get back into her room for the night. Brittany took the screen out and entered through the window feet-first. Next, she slid her head through. Once her whole body was through the window, she plopped onto the bed. She retrieved her keys.
Brittany has decided to keep her keys around her neck.
