Today, I locked myself out of the house I was house-sitting. An hour later, and my fifth attempt at climbing the fence, I figured I'd try the door one more time. Turns out I was turning the handle the wrong way and the door wasn't locked in the first place. FML

Least you didn't wind up like me. Last time I got locked out I tried to jump through a second story window and woke up in the hospital with a concussion.

This made me laugh. I think the conspicuousness of that just may prevent someone from thinking it was a burglar. However, climbing a tree looks a bit odd. Either the neighborhood is very disconnected, or people knew someone was house-sitting, and had entertainment for an hour. TL(and random);DR

"House-sitting." It isn't his house so he probably isn't used to turning someone else's knob. I don't see why he would need the knowledge about his own door unless they have similar doorknobs.

I have a set of french doors on the side of my house but it was put in upside down, so you have to turn the handle the oppisite way. I'm so use to turning door handles the correct way that it tricks me everytime. Guess I'm not bright enough to remember..
