Yesterday I dropped my car off at the shop to be fixed. Let me preface this story by admitting I was going on very little sleep. I was just about to fall asleep when my son texted me and said, "I'll meet you at the car repair shop in an hour and I'll drive you home." Okay, I get up and start preparing to get my car to the shop. I write a note to the car guys and I put it in an envelope. I take my key off my key chain and go out to my car to get somethings out of the trunk. I slam the trunk shut and............I can't find the car key anywhere. I go back in the house and look around. It's not on the kitchen counter, it's not on my computer desk. I go through my pockets several times. I begin to conclude that since it was a lone key, I might have dropped it in the trunk while I was digging around in there. I start to panic. I text my son and tell him I have a dilemma and I may be running late. I call the police and ask if they can send a man over to open my car for me. (Mind you, I'm a Police Commissioner in my town and know most of the guys pretty well.) While I'm waiting for the officer to arrive, I keep digging through my pockets, etc. As I put my key chain on the hood of the car, I realize........."Oh, wait!!! They KEY CHAIN............with the remote to the car on it!!!" I am totally embarrassed. The officer pulls up and I tell him, "Hey, guess what?" I ask him if anything I tell him is confidential and he says it depends on what it is. I sheepishly hold up my key chain with the remote on it. He laughs at me hysterically. He then gets a "real call" and takes off. So, I go to my car again, standing behind it and just as I'm about to press the remote to open the trunk, I see my key sitting in the lock to the trunk. At least the officer didn't REALLY see how stupid I was yesterday.

Yeah, I have my moments of complete stupidity. It was really kind of funny, though.

anybody that saysthey have never done something similiar to that, would probably be lying! it happens! i too have done some very stupid things like this too in the past.

i did one similiar at work a while back. as i was the last one that left at night, i was the one that locked up and set the alarm. well, as i walked up to the truck to unlock it, i didn't have my key with the remote in my pocket. the truck is locked with my shop keys in the truck, and my truck keys in the shop. and my cell phone was also locked in the truck. so i had to walk about a mile to a store that was open 24 hours to use their phone to call my wife to bring me the spare door key to my truck that was at the house. so about 45 minutes later she gets there, with just about every key that was on the keyholder at the house, because she didn't know which one fit my truck. get the right key, get the shop key, unlock the shop to get my remote that was used to start the truck. relock and reset the alarm and then i can start my truck! it had been one of those days that started at about 9am and ended about 3am the next day. i was tired and not thinking clearly either! it happens to the best of us at times!

At least you legitimately didn't have access to your truck. I had access to opening my car the whole time, I just didn't realize it. Duh!!

I've searched frantically for my keys before only to realize they were in my hand or pocket the entire time....

I locked my keys in my brand new Super Duty just a few days after I got it. It was in the Home Depot parking lot. I had to have my wife drive all the way down with the spare key, about a 20 minute drive. That was in 2000. Haven't done a stupid think since then!

I've done that before. My favorite thing like that was years ago when my mom was driving and pulling up the house and says "where's my car?!?"

"uhhhh you're driving it".

I picked up a mattress once in their loading bay at the store, just in front of their regular shipment truck...only to find that I had locked my door with the truck running...blocking their bay!
Took 40 minutes for Pop a Lock to get there and get me in
Nothing so stupid...and public since!
