The feeling of having left your door unlocked/a window open

Woke up after a barbecue a couple of weekends ago to find I’d left my keys (including house and car) in the shed padlock overnight. So lucky

Never used to bother me in the slightest, but my current flat doesn’t have a Yale lock/you have to manually lock it, and often have that sinking feeling when I’m out now.

Aha, it me.
