“None of Us would be this Stupid?”

 “None of Us would be this Stupid?”

 

 

Several days ago, as I left a meeting at a hotel, I desperately gave myself a personal "TSA 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 parking lot. 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 door, I came to a terrifying conclusion: her 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 her "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 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."
Yep, it's the golden years.

Haha. I was wondering where that was going.

Good morning Joe. At least I can say I have never done that! Enjoy your day!

This is very funny!  Where I left the car is now one of those things that I have to consciously think of in the parking lot at the grocery store.  At an airport I take a picture of the parking space number - I am sure this could be me on any given day!

Good morning Joe,

Hope she does not also bring the iron skillet!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Oh Joe, this is hitting to close to home for some of us! LOL  Like Lise Howe I will take a picture of my spot if I'm parking in an unfamiliar place.

I pray that that doesn't become me in my later years. Wait a minute, I am in my later years.
