Car Keys

They weren’t in my pockets. 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 my keys in the car’s ignition. He’s afraid that the car could be stolen. As I looked around the parking lot, I realized he 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 to my husband: “I left my keys in the car and it’s been stolen.”

There was a moment of silence. I thought the call had been disconnected, but then I heard his voice. “Are you kidding me?” he barked, “I dropped you off!”

Now it was my turn to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and get me.”

He retorted,”I will, as soon as I convince this cop that I didn’t steal your darned car!”

Welcome to the golden years…

    LOL. We have a little key garage where all of our keys live. We have house keys and a garage key on every ring. We have 3 vehicles and 3 houses. Yesterday afternoon Al went over to the Swamp to pick up the little push mower yesterday. He drove all the way over there only to discover he had every freaking key with him except the key to the shed where the little push mower lives. Bless his heart.

    The End.

    LOL this is just too funny.

    • June 20, 2015 11:37 am at 11:37 am

      It could happen and probably has. 🙂

    I am feeling slightly better knowing that I am not the only forgetful one. Sometimes hubby and I used to argue who was keeping the car key…lol!

    • June 20, 2015 11:37 am at 11:37 am

      No Nancy, I'm right there with you. 🙂

    That one is a side splitter! What a great way to start off my day. Thanks, Sandee.

    • June 20, 2015 11:40 am at 11:40 am

      Us older folks see the irony in this. Yes we do. 🙂

    With the way my memory is headed, I'm afraid I'll do something quite similar to my poor husband.

    • June 20, 2015 11:40 am at 11:40 am

      It could happen, but I hope for you it's way, way down the road. 🙂

  8. June 20, 2015 6:18 am at 6:18 am

    Sounds like something I would do. Too funny but guess it wasn't funny for the husband.
    Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a great day.

    • June 20, 2015 11:41 am at 11:41 am

      Wasn't all that funny for her either. Embarrassing. 🙂

  9. June 20, 2015 7:47 am at 7:47 am

    True story here. A woman went to the parking lot and couldn't find her car. The scenario was just a little different-the husband needed the car, had a neighbor drop him at the car and took off (forgetting to tell his wife).

    • June 20, 2015 11:41 am at 11:41 am

      Yikes, that wasn't good communication was it. 🙂

  10. June 20, 2015 7:53 am at 7:53 am

  12. June 20, 2015 8:47 am at 8:47 am

    Haha! Oh that sounds like something I would do right now!!

    • June 20, 2015 11:43 am at 11:43 am

      And you're young. 🙂

  13. June 20, 2015 8:49 am at 8:49 am

  15. June 20, 2015 9:46 am at 9:46 am

    I just love this joke but not for the husband. She must had been a blonde, a dizzy one.
    Ha,ha,ha. Have a wonderful Saturday Sandee. See ya.

    • June 20, 2015 11:44 am at 11:44 am

      Watch it with the blonde jokes now Paul. I would have been very embarrassed. 🙂

    Have a friend that called me once from a mall in Texas and toward the end of the conversation she says in something of a panic…"I can't find my cellphone!"…trying not to laugh I lamely reply "what's wrong with the strung cans we're talking on?". Moment of silence followed by me being threatened to never tell this story.. 😉

    • June 20, 2015 11:50 am at 11:50 am

      Was this friend a blonde? Bwahahahahahahahaha. That's better than my post. 🙂

  17. June 20, 2015 1:33 pm at 1:33 pm

    I love this one. Needed a giggle on this dull Saturday night!

    • June 21, 2015 9:44 am at 9:44 am

      Glad I made you giggle. 🙂

  18. June 20, 2015 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm

    LOL! I think this makes me glad that I have never had a car…I take the bus. Thanks so much for sharing, this made me laugh. 🙂

    • June 21, 2015 9:45 am at 9:45 am

      Cars are expensive too. There's that part. 🙂

  19. June 21, 2015 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm

    We've all had those moments. It's like standing in a room and trying to remember did you just come in or were you just leaving.

    • June 22, 2015 10:41 am at 10:41 am

      Hubby and I have those all the time. Way too much of the time. 🙂

  20. June 22, 2015 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm

    Ah, the memories. Or lack thereof.

    • June 22, 2015 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm

      It's the or lack thereof. Bugger. 🙂

  21. June 23, 2015 9:43 am at 9:43 am

    Good punchline, but losing track of keys happens to everybody. Our lives are so hectic nowadays that I'm grateful it doesn't happen more often at our house. My husband and oldest daughter are the worst offenders at our house for locking their keys in their cars. My husband calls me for rescue, but our daughter sneakily calls AAA.

    • June 23, 2015 10:05 am at 10:05 am

      It happens to us all the time. We just laugh at ourselves and keep looking. They turn up eventually. 🙂
