Christina W, do you really think that any student - by defn - who's well known for not having a lot of excess (ie, any) cash laying around - would voluntarily choose this method of wasting money - esp. when said student also loses a lot of time and effort having to get staff to re-open said door?!
So much for your human compassion and empathy....
Be grateful that you don't have the same short-memory loss.
It's most likely due to genetics or a car accident ie,
something certainly not having been under OP's control previously either.
Do unto others as you'd wish others would do unto you.

Author's Edit: My apologies for going "overboard" earlier with CAPS & white-space.

It's just too bad that OP learned only of this @ $1000 mark - not every $20 or $100 - so that she'd know that much sooner to hopefully implement an effective change to her routine.

You're right, there could be an underlying issue causing the short-term memory problems. But it's still on the OP to take responsibility and steps to work with that. Buy a lanyard, attach the key to their phone/wallet/purse, put a sticky note on their door saying "Do You Have Your Key?!"
Most people with legit memory problems find ways to at least try to work with it. After 50 lost keys? That's all on them.

Haters be hatin', it looks like, but not willing to outright refute me. THAT takes courage, y'all!
Author's Edit: MY BAD! MEA CULPA! Toned down my op, too....

Hempseed, thanks for asking! Feeling MUCH better now after venting. Lol
Tho I doubt Christina will check this page again....

People sometimes seem to forget that ol' adage: Don't judge a person until after you've walked a mile (or 3!) in his/ hers shoes."

Maybe look AT your AVATAR picture and PAY attention to what IT says? You sem a TAD worked UP over nothing much. I believe the saying is CHILL.

Mungo, you're right! MEA CULPA!

I need to amend my avatar: Too Caring STILL for SOME of This Shit

I just thought that people could be a little bit more understanding given that she has a severe short-term memory issue AND that she never knew/ quickly forgot/ easily overlooked when reading through housing contract - until said $1000 bill arrived - that each lockout costs $20.

And yes, I removed all capitalization and excess whitespace, but changed no text.


Well, you’re wrong, I did check the page again. I still stand by my original statement. Poor short term memory or not..... 50 times? In what I assume is the same year? Come on. 10. I’d maybe let them slide at 10. But 50? Nope. YDI.

Do you have one of those automatic shutting doors? We had that and the bathroom is in the hall so even if you didn't plan on leaving but just went "oh shit I gotta go pee" and forget your room automatically locks you out you're fucked.

Bleed everyone dry from the FML's you see.

It's not really bleeding somebody dry if they aren't responsible enough to remember their keys. They have to pay somebody to bail this guy out every time.

it would be bleeding them because the person that "bails" them out was already getting paid to be there because master keys and staff still there doing their job

It's hard to feel bad when you are saying you have locked yourself out of your room 50 times. Maybe you can ask next year if they have a rewards program for every time you use that service.
