I once toured SafeSite in Rochester NY.  Made a big deal about changing
the daily to get in.  Noticed he punched in, lets say 123,  went back with
my management 3 weeks later for  *their* demo.  Same number.  Closer
look at keypad showed the numbers worn off just the 3 used.

Definitely!!!  I wish I would have thought of that with my first vendor.  I got
burned by that one myself...
