I had a metal cash box that I lost the key to.
I didn’t remember what I had put in it, but whatever it was was pretty heavy. I took it to a locksmith, who opened it and made me new keys. He charged me $25.
Turned out the box contained ammunition for guns I no longer owned, which isn’t relevant to the story, but I know if I don't put it in you'll get all distracted and feel unsatisfied not knowing.
Anyway, the point is that last week I saw the exact same lockbox in Walmart. I realized that I could have just drilled out the old lock and bought a new box, and it would have cost me $12.99 plus tax.
PS. The first sentence of this post ends in a preposition; if you think that’s a legitimate grammar rule to care about (about which to be concerned), you are a stupid person. Just saying.
