Accessing parent web list items carefully

I spent quite some time today fixing this problem of accessing a list item in parent web. What I had to do was to access a list item in a parent web, but strangely it kept returning no result, and I made sure the item did exist in the list.

Then I found out it’s due to permission issue. When accessing a parent web’s list items, you have to run your code under elevated privileges mode, otherwise if you debug it you will see that it crashes when trying to access them.
