Saw this and wanted to share:

Several days ago as I left a meeting at our church, I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down. I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets or purse. 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, David, 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 doors of the church, 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 has been stolen.”

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard David’s voice. “Betty” he barked, “I dropped you off!” Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and get me.” David retorted, “I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car?”

  • This was a hoot! I can totally relate. Once I thought my car had been stolen from the Walmart parking lot and called my son in a panic. I had just finished my Thanksgiving dinner shopping and was freaking because I had the turkey in my shopping cart and couldn't find my car. I was sure that it had been stolen. My son talked me through it until I finally spied my car. He was was exactly where I left it! Thanks for putting a smile on my face DiCan!

  • I love all the stories, it lets us know that we are not alone and we can laugh together. Laughter truly is the best medicine! I have not lost my car (yet), but I have tried to put on a pair of reading glasses over the ones that are still on my face!

  • Double vision? :) :)

  • But of course! :-)

  • Yesterday I wore my reading glasses all day, wondering why things were so fuzzy...thought I had my bifocals on. :)

  • I once managed to lock myself out of my flat....had to shoulder charge the door open, caused a bit of damage but nothing I cant fix with a couple of new screws!....havent told my landlady about it yet! dont think I will either...very naughty. Oh and twice now I`ve taken my glasses off, put them down, forgotten they were there and promptly sat on them!! Two trips to the opticians later........Good we can laugh together :-D

  • When it requires a trip to the proctologist you'll be careful where you sit.

  • Welcome to my world. This week I "lost" my keys twice and my wallet once.. I cannot blame PD, I've been doing it all my life. I need one of those cords wit which little kids mittens are attached to their kid. Picture me with wallets, keys and assorted other belongings hanging out of my sleeves!! My message is : find the humor in life. It makes life worth fighting for.
