In our last blog, we provided our readers with a few things that they could do while waiting for a locksmith to arrive. That’s not to say we won’t be there in a flash, however! At Pro-Lock and Safe, we take a lot of pride in a speedy arrival time. We know that locking your keys in your car isn’t exactly high on the list of pleasant experiences. That’s why we make your situation our top priority to ensure that you can get back into your car and get back to your day.

But what are you supposed to do when you’re waiting for us to arrive? We already suggested that you could take the time to respond to an email you’ve been putting off, do a bit of cardio now so you don’t have to do it later, or simply sit quietly and enjoy a moment of reflection that you might not otherwise have time for during the day. In today’s post, we’d like to highlight a few other things we think would make for a great way to use your time in the few minutes between when you call us and when we arrive. What will make the list? Keep reading to find out!

Play a Game of Dots

“Inspired by minimalist art, Dots was created with the notion that beauty and fun are not mutually exclusive,” they note on the Dots website. They go on to mention that it’s a “minimalist game that was designed to be a soothing experience.” In other words, it’s the perfect way to pass the time and get calmed down at the same time. Realizing that you’re locked out can often result in a spike in your adrenalin and make it feel like you can’t calm down, so having a game that provides you with a soothing experience could make a big difference.

Already mastered Dots? Try your hand at Two Dots or Dots & Co if you’d like a different take on the same type of gameplay you got from your first experience. Whichever game you decide to try, they’re available for pretty much every smart device and they make for a great way to pass the time wherever you are.

Check Social Media

Another great way to spend a couple of minutes is to simply scroll through your favorite social media feed. Open up Instagram and take a look at what your friends are posting. Check Twitter and treat yourself to a couple of jokes. Catch up with what’s going on on Facebook. Whichever social media app is your go-to, having a few minutes to check in and see what others have been up to is always fun.

Or, of course, you could make a post yourself. Let others know about your bad luck and enjoy the solidarity you get from others liking your post.

Plan Your Next Meal

How often have you found that you get home at the end of a long day at the office only to realize that you have absolutely no idea what you’re going to eat for dinner that night? You could head over to Anna and Mike’s Ristorante and grab some Italian food or a slice of pizza (try their Ranchero Pizza if you haven’t yet!). Or you could cruise over to Rudy’s Family Restaurant in Harrington for one of their Jumbo Burgers.

You could also take this time to start a grocery list and try your hand at making something you’ve never tried before. How about a nice beef burgundy stew? Or maybe you could make something like andouille etouffee and grab a nice crusty bread at the store to go with it. It’s starting to cool down a bit here lately and you’ll want something delicious and hearty that will stick to your bones, you know!
