They simply let the door shut with the keys inside. All I had to do was open the door normally so she and her kids could go inside again.

When I was still 280 lbs. and competed in strongman, I pushed a good handful of cars out of the road or out of ditches. Other than that, I was just the guy everyone I fucking knew called on every time they needed to move furniture. It sucked.
>>
>>61997812
Yeah that was early this year ( around January) and was not training at that moment, setting the sneaker stuff aside I also had to stop for traffic because the street where he was is usually very traffic heavy, but yeah now I can do it in less time since I resumed training
>>
>>61996406
Can you explain the situation a little bit more?

I don’t get it. Reading OP it sounds like they are locked out of their apartment on their balcony. You scale up to their balcony but then how do you open the door? If the door’s not locked can’t they just open it?
>>
Had to row hundreds of pounds of molten glass to prevent a furnace back-clog at my job, used long metal spikes with hooks on the end to do it. Room was easily 100+ degrees.

Truly felt I had made it when one of my older boomer coworkers looked at me and said "I'm too old for this kinda shit, you young bucks got all the muscles you get all the heavy shit"
>>
>>61998136
Basically the left their apartment and forget their keys inside then close the door. Many doors don't have a knob to open it without the keys so I had to climb through the window and open the door from the inside.
>>
>>61998199
Sounds actually hardcore and fulfilling in the end.

>>61998278
Wait OP so the keys were in the balcony door or something? Could you explain in a little more simpler terms? I still don’t get it
>>
>>61996065
this one time the landlord had some guys come to take away their old bath tub, it was heavy and pretty big, one of those old metal + enamel tubs, they fucked up by not having a ramp and only bringing 2 people, so the land lord asked if i could help, and i took one end by myself and and the other 2 guys took the other end. they were amazed, they even asked me to come with them to drop it off, but it was too far away(an hour's drive).

and thats how I saved the day.
>>
>>61998278
Because you did it the hardcore way, I'll give you a protip:

Learn to shim locks with a butter knife or bread knife. The classic way to do it is with a credit card but a bread knife is swanky mode.

I'm a Texan living at sea level and the mountains weren't too bad since I use a training mask, but that tippy top of the mountain was a bit too much for me.
Also skiing is easier. Skiing is highly recommended if you never been on a skateboard or something similar.

Imagine risking your life because some boomer forgot his key and was too cheap to get a locksmith and thinking what you did mattered
>>
Father got hit with some strange Covid like illness two years ago (but hey, TV says it only started after the bat soup so that must be true) and as he was fainting he insisted on going to toilet as he was pissing himself right in front of us. Halfway to toilet he finally caved in and if it wasn't for me around he would've hit his head on either the floor or any of the furniture. Manhandling a fat 70yo to a stool and then holding him on top of it was the workout of my life and if I wasn't working out for a few years beforehand I would've crumbled.

The door has a plate in front of the lock to prevent that, I've tried it before. It would need to be picked.

My brother tried to kill my mother and grandmother with a pair of cloth-cutting scissors. I went up behind him and grabbed his right wrist with my right arm over his should (he had his arms up, raving, but he was like 20-ish feet from them, moving closer), I put my right leg in front of and then behind his left leg to hook it, and my left arm around his neck. I kept twisting his wrist violently and raking his head and body back to front while keeping him unsteady with my leg in order to make him throw the damn thing or else I'd just choke him out. He eventually lost his grip, and then I hip threw him over me to which he landed flat on his back. He was all pissed off, but I took the scissors and went to go stand in the hallway, out of sight. Cops were called, they came and tasered him.

BECAUSE THEY'RE VICIOUS FUCKING CUNTS. For my entire life was I abused by those two, and by others they enabled. I acted like a boy and they threw me in therapy for it, and got me all sorts of little shits that would follow me around, pestering me. You name it, they made me get it. In and out of home therapy, TTS's, and all sorts of shit I can't remember. All the female staff persons but like one fucking openly emotionally abused me for the littlest things because my whore of a grandmother told them I hated women, and the one that didn't was afraid of me because I'm fairly big. I was a fucking kid. I didn't think about hating women until after that brother who tried to kill them told me about the sneaky shit they were doing, and then I actually started hating women.

>tl;dr
>be a rowdy boy because no father figure
>dumb cunts: this must mean he hates women

It was just one of those situations where I didn't have plausible deniability. I swear to you, had I thought I could've just walked away, well, I wouldn't tell this story. There isn't a Trolley Problem for me. I've made up my mind on that shit.

I have a friend who is an incredible comics autist and had a custom bookshelf made in the size aspect for french graphic novels. I will pause for you to roll your eyes now.
The time came for him to move from his walk-up apartment and the bookshelf was too big to take out the front door. It was built inside. I say built, not assembled - this wasn't some IKEA shit that could be disassembled, but about 180lb of hardwood in a floor-to-ceiling height bookshelf that was properly nailed together.
We decided to tip it over the balcony and one of us would catch it. My friend is a lanklet hungry skeleton and my wife is 4'11 and 90 lb dripping wet. So even though I am a manlet, I was designated the catcher.
With some extreme difficulty, the two of them finally were able to tip the bookshelf over the balcony railing, which acted as a high fulcrum. When the back end came down, I was able to catch it in an OHP lockout position, although I did not have the leverage to do anything past that point. There I was, holding the bookshelf end-up like a fucking caber leaning against the balcony railing, in full OHP lockout, while shouting at lanklet friend and wife to get their asses downstairs and find a way to help me safely unload this thing or I was going to let it drop and shatter right there. It took the two of them almost a full minute to get down, and then what felt like an eternity to figure out how to brace against it to provide a human sledge for this thing to slide down safely.
It was in that moment that I was euphoric in my own fitness enlightenment, because if I hadn't been able to hold that thing in OHP lockout for so long, I'd either be dead or that fine custom piece of hardwood furniture would be splinters.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

one time this lady accidentally went into drive instead of reverse, and her car got stuck in some parking lot curb
I saw like two dudes trying to help lift the car off the curb since the two wheels were stuck in a position where the wheels were not touching the ground
basically we all started lifting from the bottom of the car and she put it on drive (without the pedal) and got her car stuck out, we all fistbumped after the deed was done and went back to our lives

car was pretty heavy too, felt good helping someone
