gg locking out of apartment complex

Last night I drove to the Kirkland apartment at 1am, ready to catch 5 hours of sleep before heading to the airport.

As I settled in, I realized that I needed my cell phone charger, so I walked down a flight of stairs and walked out of the apartment complex into the garage. I picked up the charger, and then turned with horror to realize that I left the keys in the apartment.

The apartment itself I left unlocked, but my car was in visitor parking, and I needed a key to get into the complex itself. A key that was sitting on the kitchen counter. I called upon my ingenuity. I rattled the doors. I called the apartment manager -- no response. I walked around and tried all the entrances into the complex.

Finally I managed to squeeze through the leftmost hole in the gate through which cars enter (to the left of the yellow-and-black stripes):

I demand to see a reenactment of this. :) How could any human fit through that gap.

I expect a video :)

I can't even see how that's remotely humanly possible!

The notch in the bar that runs along the wall might just be enough to put one's head (probably one of a human's least compressible parts as viewed from the side) through.

Niniane, do you really exist? Or are you just a virtual entity created by Google engineers? Please tell the truth and please provide ample evidence.

Ano #3 is just a little bit awestruck. To fit through that gap seems almost a Ć¼berhuman. Every day we are given the opportunity to enjoy beautiful poems and remarkable, razor sharp observations about 'la condition humaine'. This all presented with a charming smile, it is almost to much to bear. We are very priviliged.

I see that some of you are trying to give me a big head, so that I will become unable to fit through the garage gate in the future. A devious plan indeed!
