My parents locked my sister and I out once. We had a habit of forgetting our house keys and my parents were really tired of us waking them up at 2am. So one night they taped a note to the door that said "Sorry, maybe next time you'll remember your keys, back shed is open!". Luckily my brother had gotten off work very late and let us in, we NEVER forgot our keys again.
At some point parents have to draw the line, as I tell my kids continually, I am your Mother, not your maid and I am NOT at your beck and call.
My mom did come unlock my house the day I locked myself out and my baby IN! Boy did I get an earful about that though. I made the neighbor a spare key that day.
