Only under orders.

When I was in the Air Force, we were to enter a room to do periodic maintenance. Only the day lock (a five push-button job) had been changed. It was about 0230, and the lead was trying to decide if he should wake up the day shift supervisor or just put off the PMI. I informed him that I could go through the lock.

"Go ahead."

"Is that an order?"

"Yes." (grinning)

It took less than a minute.
