On Tuesday, Pitt issued everyone new student ids. After a long day of class, I walked back to my apartment and got into the building, no problem. When I got up to the fifth floor, my id won't let me into the apartment!
Luckily, my roommates were there to let me in. I went to the housing office on Wednesday and they "reactivated" my id, but it still didn't work! I went again this morning and my id still wouldn't open the door. This time my roommates weren't there to let me in.
I left Heather and Evelyn messages and proceeded to wait in the hallway for thirty minutes. Heather called me back when she got out class. Here's what she said: "That's so frustrating that you're id still is working! I don't what the problem could be. I mean, maybe your id got printed wrong and you just have to scan it the other way. But I'm sure you tried that already."
Nope, I had not thought of that. I had been scanning my id this way:
But I just needed to turn it around and scan it this way instead.
That was just a little embarrassing.
