Do you recognize that feeling that you can only spell a certain word if you typ it really fast?

    Definitely and definitive are two examples. Once I start to think how to spell it, I can't do it anymore.

    I'm like that with PIN numbers and entry codes. I just have to stop trying to get into my building using my debit card number, that's all.

    At my job I have a code number to type to get in the front door. Then a clock in number, then each lift in the building has a different numerical code and there are 3 lifts. So many times I have either tried to enter the building with my debit card number, or clock in with it, or use the lift with it. And then at the same time I have used my clock in number or the door entry number to try and take cash from an ATM.

    One night when I was very tired after work I used 2 work number sequences when trying to get cash out.

    I don't know about that. I was never really properly trained to type, but I can type in the dark. I don't fully understand that.

    That's a good one. I used to do that with a (looooooooong) password for a library website, I had to type it with rhythm, like making music. (ta-teedee-ta-daa, taa teedee-teedee).
    Gosh, I've always wondered what it's like to work for SPECTRE. I imagine how entering the wrong code will turn you into breakfast for piranhas.

    Not quite, but entering the wrong code 3 times at lifts or doors will cause them to automatically lock down. Then it's a whole nightmare to get them unlocked again. And it happens often, especially when new people start work there.

    If there is a fire all lifts shut down automatically. All fire doors close automatically but all exit doors open automatically. And there is a fire drill once a week and all of these things happen.

    There is manual way of getting people out of the lift. Someone got stuck in it while I was at work, when there wasn't a fire. But the firemen had to get him out. It's only a 4 floor building so it's not that difficult.
