Okay so a drama-filled weekend and I'm looking for a technical option at the end of this thread. The young twat at the storage place (who replaced the mature woman we've been dealing with for 3 years) has a history. Doesn't answer the phone, doesn't return phone calls, then charges late fees because the payment was late (why we were calling in the 1st place). I've grown to hate this twat. Young, attractive, and you can tell she's been getting by her whole life on her looks. I think the Area Manager is banging her. He's a douche. I have a 6th sense about these things. These are "not much" people anyways, I mean how much effort is it to run a storage locker place anyways? A very low minimal level of performance and I think that's the problem. That hot snatch was hired because performance standards were low, and the douche of an Area Manager was dipping his wick in it, because the cow he is married to is,... well, she's a cow. Who else would marry a douche? So there's my bias, right off the bat. I've hated this twat for months now. Every time we get dinged for a $15.00 late fee, the imagined hypothetical situation in my mind to explain this twat's role in my life has become increasingly detailed, and I've grown to BELIEVE in these details. The hot twat, and her boss, the douche married to a cow. That's who these people are in my mind. (Yours too, btw. Note how vivid my descriptions are.) So I show up last week to check on some things. It's been more than 2 months since I've been there. I drive by it almost every day and wonder what's going on, etc... We pay $200 a month to store thousands & thousands of dollars worth of antique furniture, family heirlooms, etc... all manner of valuable things. The container is large, 10 x 15, and it's full from floor to ceiling. Walk up to the door & key doesn't work. Check, yes it's the right number. Key still won't work. "Key... won't <jiggle> work. Key <dammit> won't <jiggle> damn <stupid> jiggle <key> won't <goddam it> key won't WHAT the FUCK is wrong with this key?" Look down. Metal shavings on the ground. Inspect. Looks like someone has drilled-out the lock. Huh. Have we been robbed? Check shavings. Not bright; they are oxidized. And I can tell by their pattern that they've been rained on (it rained last week). The shavings have been carried by the rain into an outline surrounding a small pile of dirt. (Yes, I'm an advanced level Ranger with +18 Perception and a + 5 bonus for tracking.) Conclusion: They drilled the lock before the rain last week. And didn't call. No letter, no nothing. The obvious answer is that they broke in, stole stuff, changed the lock and then didn't tell us hoping uh, I dunno. Maybe that it would be a year before we came around to find out the lock had been drilled out, and changed? Anyways, I confronted the twat, she enunciated some words that I completely ignored (she'd lied to me before and I have a tendency to not listen to liars), I said some angry words and then set about trying to get both her and the douche fired. The Regional Manager says the Area Manager saw the videotape and they drilled that lock out 20 minutes before I showed up on accident (they have a story). They are overnighting the video DVD to him. It should be there tomorrow (Monday) morning. What's Going to Happen: The Regional Manager is going to tell me that he also viewed the video tape and that they in fact DID only drill that lock out 20 minutes before I showed up (astronomically strange coincidence), and that this whole thing is just "one of those things" that sometimes happens, and I have nothing to worry about. Here's his definition of "nothing to worry about": 1) 3 days to do a full inventory of everything that is in that container. Drag it all out, open all the boxes, etc... 2) Since we are doing that, we may as well move to another container as we really don't need the 10 x 15 anymore. Another 3 days. 3) For the rest of our life, anytime we can't find something or wonder where "that thing" went, we'll always wonder if it was stolen from the storage container. There are a LOT of antiques, etc... you don't pay $200 a month to store CRAP. Which is one reason why I suspect the employees were overwhelmed with curiosity about what was in there and drilled-out the locks. So then MY RESPONSE will be, "Sure, just overnight me a copy of the DVD also, so I can see the employees drilling out my lock 20 minutes before I show up for the 1st time in over 2 months." WHAT IF: 1) The Regional Manager refuses to send a copy of the video to me? 2) The Regional Manager sends me a copy of the video? I want to focus on the 2nd option. I want to know how possible it is for someone to doctor time/date stamped video, and if it's possible for someone else to tell if it's been altered. Is it like photoshop? Harder? Easier? If I get this videotape and it appears legit, that it was a very short time between the time the lock was drilled-out and I showed up (20 minutes, or whatever), is there someone here that can tell if it's legit, or forged?
