I almost forgot. As mentioned earlier, I'm installing new exterior doors on the house. As I was purchasing these lock sets, I discussed my keying options with the nice man at the hardware counter. Upon directing the nice man to key both new sets alike, I think noticed something amazing. All at the same instant, I realized that I purchased the same type of locks that are on my parent's house, that i carry a key to their house, that the nice man could key my new locks to this key on my key chain, and that the net result to me would be one less key to carry around.
Thats right. I now have the same key to my house as my parents. All so I can drop .02oz of weight from my daily carry around responsibilities.
That folks, is sad.
