However, it works REALLY well. So well, in fact, that I got locked out of the house! I could not get the gate open, and neither could our neighbor, Vera. She tried, I tried, and it eventually came down to me jumping the fence and opening the ”garage”. What makes this story even more humorous is that my host sister was home the whole time- sunbathing in the garden.
Hehe. At least I know it works!
