FYI: I'm a genius!

So there may have been a time or two in the past where I've locked my keys in my car. Maybe there was even a time where I locked the keys in the car while it was still running.
I plead insanity.

Today, walking out to my car, I go to grab my keys. My bag is a bottomless pit so I keep my keys in the outer pocket.
You guess it, they weren't there.

I move my search to the inside of my purse. It took a little shaking around and rearranging of the contents to discover they were not there either.

I didn't even have to look in my car to figure out that I had locked my keys in my car.

...but I have learned my lesson.
This is where the genius comes in.
I keep a copy of my car key hidden at work! (Yeah, don't try to find it, cos you won't.) Yay for my smartness, I was able to use my spare to retrieve my main set from the passenger seat. I even remembered to put the spare back before I left! Go me!

So I want to take this opportunity to suggest you all leave a spare key for your car at places you frequently drive. Then you too can be a genius!

I'm awful about this, too. I blame AU because the dorms there have front desks with people who will give you a spare key when you lock yourself out on the way to the shower or a fire drill or whatever. I have had to impose on the niceness of soooooooo many car shops attached to gas stations to pry open my car for me and I've had to hoist myself through the windows of my apartments so many times in the past six or seven years (thank goodness for first floor row housing) I'm thinking of starting an Olympic event.

That is much too funny. Glad I'm not alone! :)
