So last weekend, my husband and I found ourselves locked out of our flat. We both had our keys, but neither set worked...the lock just wouldn't turn. After a few minutes of contemplating breaking a window, we decided instead to try to wake up our neighbors. They share an entry-way with us, so they could easily let us into the building, since it was that door that wouldn't open.
We were slightly worried, because our neighbors don't really like us. They once closed their door when they realized we were standing in the entry-way, rather then having to say a quick hello. See, awkward. So...yes, waking them up (it was only 11!) by ringing their bell was certainly uncomfortable. For all of us. And then having too do it again, on Sunday, because the locksmith couldn't come fix our door until Monday, was awkward, too.
Anyway. Our door is fixed now. But we're still not for friendly with our neighbors. The end.
