Car Keys

Several days ago as I left a meeting, I desperately gave myself a personal 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 car park, my wife 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, her theory is that the car will be stolen.

As I burst through the office doors I came to a terrifying conclusion her theory was right, the car park 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, “Darling,” I stammered. I always call her “Darling” in times like these. “I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen.”

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard her voice. “Idiot”, she barked, “I dropped you off!” Now it was my time to be silent, embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and get me.” She retorted, “I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car.” 😯

    I’ve had the same thing happen. That is the hardest call to make. I’m still reminded of it on occasion.

  4. My future wife broke her key in her car lock (someone else really broke it.) Although we had cooled things down for a little while a week earlier, she called me and I came out and “rescued” her. We both realized we belonged together, and got married a year later.
