Friday Fun...You Can’t Go Without Me!
The other day I read Michael Jacobs’s post That Time I Threw Away My Keys, and it reminded me of a similar oops moment I had.
Years ago when we got our Prius, it was the first car we’d owned with a key fob. It took a few times to remember that we didn’t need a “key” to open the door or start the engine and that you had to press a little button to turn the car off.
One day, I was getting ready to meet a friend for lunch when Larry pulled up in the Prius and suggested that I take it.
So, I got out of our other car and hopped into the already running Prius. Off I went to meet my friend.
You know when you have one of those realizations that happens the split second you do something?!
Oh yes, I pulled into a parking spot at the restaurant, and just as soon as I pressed the POWER button to stop the car it hit me…
I don’t have the key fob!!! Larry had it with him when he handed the car off to me!
Well, the car wasn’t going anywhere, so I called Larry, had lunch and my friend drove me home. We retrieved the car later.
There are times when I do miss the good old days when all you needed was a car key.
