Ouch man, that would definitely try my patience. Bravo for not losing your cool.Crantor said:Funny story. But made me angry at the time. In our armouries I came in and needed keys to a room. The commissionaire on duty was not the regular one. So I was asked for I.D. She looked at it and it all checked out. except she didn't check to see if I was on the access list (I was). I called her on that saying that my ID alone shouldn't get me access, she should look at the frikking list. So once that was done, I need key A. So I signed for key A and went to unlock the room only to find out she had given me key B. So I go back to her and say ui was given the wrong key. No problem she says. Just sign back in key B to get key A. I told her I hadn't signed for key B and we could just swap keys. Nope. I had to sign back in key B which I hadn't signed out. Until I did, no key A would be given to me. This time I was getting somewhat annoyed. I explained that she could just give me key A because I had actually signed that one out and could just take key B back. Nope. Dosen't work that way she said. I realised that logic wasn't going to work. So I put it to her like this. Had someone signed for key A? Yes. Me. is that key in the press? Yes it was. So i said I would sign key A back in thus accounting for that key. No problem right? Good. Then i asked her if someone had signed out key B. No one had. I asked her if it was in the press. She said no. I pointed out i could just leave now without her having any record of me having key B or even giving me key B since key A was what I signed for and apparently returned. At this point the hamster started spinning the wheel in her head and suggested we just swap keys...sigh. Felt like a "who's on first" routine.
