Key broken in lock, but got lucky

My DW broke her key in the house door and she called me. So I grabbed a paper clip and made a small hook with my needle nose pliers. I took the lock off the door since it is cold out and more comfortable to work. I also sprayed a little wd-40 in it. I tried for a while and the DW spelled me after a few (bleeps). After about 5 minutes she got it out.

After the furnace problem and a plumbing problem in this month I could not take any more. I am soooooooo happy.

So what's your point? We are smart enough to ask for directions, too!

I don't have a husband (insert smiley face here), so I have to do that kind of stuff myself.

I don't lock my doors, but if I do ever break my key off, I will remember that part about taking the knob indoors to work on it. I probably never would have thought about that.
