whose locked inside, the keys or i ?

Doesn't it drive you up the wall that right when you lock the car door and slam it behind you, its right then you realize the keys are still in the car ?

Or your occupied with chatting with someone subconciously checking that you got everything as lock and walk out the door, and as soon as you slam the front door you forget something inside ? Well an experience just like this happened yesterday, let me tell you my tale...

sometime in the early afternoon i was picked up by my friends as they honked their horn in their truck and i quickly grab my stuff and run out the door....We drive around had our fun, did our duties and jabbered about everything from the latest date to which gas was going to be the cheapest the soonest.

So we had our fun, did our stuff and i was dropped off back at home, i wave goodbye, they pull out and head back down the highway, as i have a smile on my face because of my pleasent time, i turn around and start walking towards my porch-as i walk up the steps i reach into my pocket to grab my keys and all i feel is couple of quarters and some pennies....my smile quickly diminishes and i have a worried face now. I check all my pockets knowing there is nothing there, and i was correct.

I then walk over to the landlords house to ask for the spare...forgetting as im ringing the doorbell that they are on vacation still....then i start thinking of all the places within my home that i could have left my keys at, and i can't think of any-the picture of realization is just not there !
Yet i ASSUME its probably on the kitchen table....yet ive ran into this problem before and your probably thinking just open a window and crawl thrue....do you know how small and skinny i am ? Of coarse i could do that, yet the windows were made for non burglers, meaning the only way to open my windows is from the inside and the windows are done by a twist of a crank that turns the windows open or shut....and i was not about break a window, that would have been dumb.

So i sat outside for almost 4 hours as the late afternoon turns to dusk, talking to my neighbors as they pass by and blushing at the story as i explain to every one of them over and over and over again as i tell people why im sitting on the porch or on the curb of the street.

Finally, out of the blue, the friend i was riding with passes by, sees me-does a you-ee (?) and pull s his car up to the curb beside me, as i see him i stand up and as he parks i open the passenger door to hear the common question ive been hearing all day, as the truck is obviously lifted and the edge of the seat as im standing on the curb is almost touching my nose, the domb light is on and i see something glitter under the passenger seat, out of desperation of anything else i take a look as my friend looks at me like im strange, and as my heart almost jumps out of my throat and close to fainting, what i see under the seat which is now in my hands is my HOUSE KEYS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I must have spoken almost a 100 miles an hour due to my excitement and the confusion of my friend, yet i didnt care i was relieved *Takes a big sigh*
I say goodbye to my friend walk in the door give Noah (my cat-for the new bloggers) a huge hug and got ready for the evening.

Has this happened to you recently? I don't want this to happen again anytime soon, thats for sure.

When I bought my car almost two years ago, the car dealer gave me only one set of keys. The car was a couple of years old when I bought it. The key has a chip in it, so to get another copy will cost me about $80, or so they say. So I have been very very very careful NOT to lock my keys in my car.

A few months ago, I gave the keys to my daughter, she needed something out of my car. My sons friend, who was living with us at that time, asked to borrow a couple of bucks and I told him all I had was the change in the ashtray. He sits in the drivers seat and grabs a couple of dollars worth of quarters. In the mean time, my daugther has retreived what she was looking for, and sets the keys on the dash. She informs my sons friend where the keys were and goes back into the house. He must not have heard her, gets his change and locks the door. My keys are right there on the dashboard.

Later, I needed my keys for something, I can't remember, and discovered my dilemma.

After I bought the car, I figured it must have been in a fender bender by the previous owner, due to a couple things I didn't notice when I bought it. One being, on the drivers side, the mirror is bolted on. The other being, on the drivers side back door window... it keeps popping off track. And after thinking about it, the body was too perfect to be three years old. I was grateful for the second one, because I was able to get a wire hanger in there and pop the lock. Well, I didn't do it, but the boy who locked the car did, because I was pretty upset at that time.

The saddest part is that I usually do this and it is usually left in my own purse or under my own seat still fully accessible to me never lost or locked up in the first place!

kscountrygirl yes that would definetly be a sight to a ladies feet and legs dangeling out of a Ranger, I actuall had a lady friend as well who had the local police on speed dial and new the cops by name when they came to the rescue....kind of makes you think if she was doing this on purpose.

xx_44DD_xx kind of makes you wish that all our dogs were the benji and lassies of the world were our pets that could understand us when we say something instead of giving us a blank face while wagging there tale....thank goodness for spouses to the rescue though.

I have locked my keys in the car OH SO MANY TIMES!! One time, however, I locked BOTH sets in the car while it was still running!! Luckily I had a friend (since deceased) who was a locksmith...he didn't really seem to know what he was doing, and after an hour of watching him struggle with it, I said (for the hundredth time) Ya just gotta hit that auto unlock button!

Well why didn't you say so? As if I had never said it a HUNDRED TIMES!! but I digress...

I was very thankful to him and bought him a few beers later on...but all the trouble we could have saved...I'm blonde, what can I say!!

sweetthang2877-

Oh thank goodness im not the only one whose done this, see you can label yourself blond because society has created such a format, yet in my blog ABC' gum EEEEeewww where i asked if i was the only dork on the planet, luckily i wasnt the only one, yet society has not reached the comort zone where a man can say "I'm bald, what can i say!" but when that happens, ill be in luck !

Spare keys are one thing, locking both sets is another, yet having friends such as your locksmiths are the best, my uncle was the same way, he was my hero of unlocking my doors at the strangest places.
