It's time for another....

Good Idea:
Using your I.D. badge to get through the turnstiles at work.

Bad Idea:
Trying to use your I.D. badge to get through the turnstiles at work after you've accidentally put it in the dryer, somehow deactivating it.

I love feeling like an idiot at work. I might have forgotten to mention the dryer thing to the security guards when I had to go get a new one. It just magically stopped working today! :)

I had to get two replacement badges in one month. I used the "my kids just love playing with them" excuse. Somehow I think they've heard that one before. The reality was that after getting the first replacement, I found the original. Because the original one was deactivated upon issuance of the second badge, I decided to dispose of the original with a pair of scissors. The next day when I tried to swipe in at the door I discovered that I had hacked the new card into bits, not the old.

I would have used the incident of my ID badge not working to see that as a sign that I didn't need to go to work.
