Car Keys

Recommended Posts

Naomi

Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel; I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down.

I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets.

A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.

Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car.

Frantically, I headed for the parking lot.

My husband has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition.

My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them.

His theory is that the car will be stolen.

As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion.

His theory was right.

The parking lot was empty.

I immediately called the police. I gave them my location,

confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.

Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered; ( I always call him "honey" in times like these.) "I left my keys in the car and it's been stolen."

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard his voice.

"Are you kidding' me", he barked, "I dropped you off"!!!

Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me."

He retorted, "I will, as soon as I convince this cop I didn't steal your car."

Naomi,

Don't feel alone. I once called the cops because I thought my car had been stolen from a Walmart parking lot.

I found it 10 minutes before they showed up. I had forgotten which door I had used to enter the store, and thus which area of the parking lot I had parked in..... stars

I am relative certain the cops were happy that it really wasn't stolen ... much less paperwork for them bwink

One thing about it, as long as we are on this old ball of mud things like that will happen to us

LOL. The cop that showed up got a big laugh out of the entire situation. Said he had done something pretty similar.

I posted this because I just had to laugh at myself. If we can't do that, well, as far as I'm concerned we really have a problem with taking ourselves way too seriously.

Surely you didn't experience this without turning it in to Reader's Digest, Naomi. I realize they may not take this kind of input any longer, it's been so long since we've subscribed, but it's worth a shot.

God cares! peace

BTW, I laughed so hard it would have been worth the subscription price.

I can't help telling you my faux pas at a shopping center parking lot.

I took my sister to the airport in Syracuse and decided to find a shopping center while I was in the area. It was a great center and I did notice signs at the door when we entered to notice the color of the entrance. Well we had about an hour to shop before closing.

I headed out the door to my car and realized I hadn't looked for the right color exit. The door was locked and it was starting to rain and I had to walk all the way around those huge buildings to the complete other side of the mall.

I didn't get too wet but I learned a lesson that evening.
