It’s been a few weeks since one of my friends announced with a bit more than mild rating of excitment that she’s going to move out of the student accomodation flats into one of the oldest houses in the city center of Delft*. As a person who moved to and fro more than what any normal human being should in such a short time span (and realizes what a pain that is) I offered my help. Alongside me, Boogie** was also brought into our poor student lives to help us. Meet Boogie
I introduce a 4th law of Newton*** : Once two girls execute too much force on huge masses (OH LORD SO MUCH STUFF!!!) their brains shrinks and they zone out so much that they forget the key inside a locked van O.O
At this point we had everything left inside. Her phone,bike keys and house keys. My bag containing notes for the bio final on monday, wallet and house keys. The kind of dork I am; I was freaked out about the notes and the exam. Cause hey I’m the cool girl that has her ID and phone in her pocket. Yeah smart girl realized after 2 hours that she can not sneak back home cause her house keys were not in her pockets but in her bag INSIDE the van.
So we called and called and called. We called the student center asking if they had spare keys? NO! Were they assigned to the car service? NO! Calling the car service to see if they’re kind enough to help even if the car is not assigned there? NO! Does the student center want to get assigned? NO! Police will you help us? NO! Open garage…maybe you? NO! These calls altogether took more than two hours because all of them would ask the same question about spare keys. NO WE DON’T HAVE SPARE KEYS! They were obviously the same people who will suggest you to restart your PC for solving every fucking problem.
At the depths of our despair I realized that we didn’t take the proper first step in solving every problem which is: SEARCH IT ON YOUTUBE. Guys this is brilliantHow to break into your car with a coat hanger
It took us 5 minutes to unlock the car and that moment was LEGENDARY! We felt on top of the world untill we realized the battery had died. See the parking lights were still on when we locked ourselves out of the van and Boogie just couldn’t stand the two hours of blinking red light at people. I found out today that a 55 kg 160 cm girl (that would be me) can push a van but that it won’t start the engine. Alongside that we learned that the engines in Nissan vans older than ourselves are under the driver seats but most importantly we learned how to break into cars. So beware…
*Go watch “the girl with the pearl earring”…yeah the streets and houses in the centre of Delft are still like that. The whole area around the old cathedral are streets, canals with lovely bridges,old Dutch houses, Boutique cafes and shops. It’s pretty awesome. Visiting the place is also another option besides watching a movie, Just sayin’
**Boogie is from the student union. It contains the remnants of hard student life in it and basically it’s a piece of trash on four wheels. Hence the reason why none of the passerby people bothered to take any action, you know like calling the police. Boogie is a name I gave on spot cause it made weird noises on the road.
***I’m sure Newton would not approve of this. But Newton was a royal douchebag according to lots of books…and every student who failed their mechanics course. So who cares…
