Scene: Front door of my office, Monday 06:35
I arrive to find two colleagues standing in the freezing weather, frustrated. Our door has a cipher lock on it: a rectangular box sits atop of the steel doorknob, wherein 5 numbered buttons are lined up vertically. Punch in the correct code, turn the knob, you're in.
Remember this weekend's weather. Typically, the metal buttons freeze, requiring a pair of pliers from my tool box to grip and push in, pull out. I stand there with my briefcase and coffee, and tell the two I will get my pliers.
Guy1: It's not the buttons, it's the knob that's frozen. What should we do?I was trying to decided whether to tell this doofus to sit in his warm car instead of obviously freezing. Instead I stood little more than 3' from the door, stared at the knob for a half of a second, and landed a front kick square on the knob.
Me: Try it now.
Guy2: Hey it works, and he didn't even spill his coffee!
Guy1: Can you teach me that?
Yeah... I work with some brilliant guys. Sphere: Related Content
