About 10 minutes later I was "cracking" some of the locks and interchanging them around.
"Yes, during the trip I was able to use the same "pick" to open a room door and the door to the bus. Fun times, that was."
I had a friend at college who always carried a screwdriver and would unscrew tables, chairs, anything held together by screws.
I kept very quiet about my lock picking abilities when he was around in case he picked up on that idea. There was nothing worse than having to unpick a bike lock when you were cutting it fine getting to a lecture on time.
