Who's Locked Keys in their car?

2 years ago on the way down to Ozzfest in West Palm Beach, about 3 and a half hours away, me and my sis stopped at a rest stop to pee about 2 hours into it. We went to get something out of the trunk and the key broke off inside the trunk latch. We could still get into the car, but not start it. We called my mom who was about 3 hours away, and she brought us a key. That sucked cus we missed 2 of the 5 bands we wanted to see there.

One time my other sisters boyfriend was at our house and he locked his keys in his POS hyundai. So, he bent the door so that he could fit a coat hanger through the door/frame gap and opened it that way. He bent it back afterwards but it was still a funny thing to see.

I've never had a real problem since I'm pretty good with breaking into things. But on one occasion I did have to call the police to bust my car open.

Who's Locked Keys in their car?

I was working at a grocery store over Christmas one year. I started up my 1985 Honda Accord with power locks and proceeded to step out of the car into a snow storm to get the 6 inches of snow off of the windows. As the door closed, nothing led me to believe that the door had locked. After getting the snow off of the car I tried to open the driver's side door. LOCKED!!! I went inside the store and called my step-father to bring my extra set of keys and I asked him to hurry because my car was running. The 15 minute drive took him an hour and a half because he got stuck in the snow on the way over in his RWD Chevy Caprice. I got into the car and turned off the engine for about 5 minutes while I cleaned the 6 inches of snow off again, started it up again, and drove the 15 minute drive home in 45 minutes in the snow storm.

The only other time I locked the keys in my car was when I had my 1976 Cutlass Supreme, but the lock mechinanism was missing anyway so I reached my finger in, felt around, and pulled the switch over to unlock the door, just like I did every day.

Consider yourself lucky. Snow rocked when I was a kid, except when it caused the power to go out, but once I reached 16, that changed. Driving in snow is hell, mainly because other people don't know how to drive, but sliding around is not fun.

I still remember the time when we had a freak snowstorm happen while I was in highschool in MD, most of the drivers had never seen snow before. When we got out there was already a good 3 inches on the ground and it was coming down. The outlet road from our high school had a very large hill right at the exit. 3 or 4 people tried to stop on the hill only to come sliding and run into the car behind them. You'd think theyd learn, but no.

OT: Actually you wouldn't want that. My dad was in Atlanta several years ago when they had a big snow/ice storm. He said that it was absolute hell. Power lines went down, people were wrecked all over the place and people went into panic mode. He said that even the convenice stores were running out of groceries and stuff. He just laughed though and went about his business. IIRC the city was basically shut down for a week b/c of the 4 inches of snow and ice

Back on topic: I have thankfully avoided locking keys in my car. my dad however managed to lock they keys into his expedition once. We were at an air show about 30 minutes from our house. Thankfully my sister didn't want to come so she brought keys down for us. We were there for an hour and a hlaf though b/c she had to fight through traffic. The only people who found the entire thing funny was the MPs. One guy said that he had the know how but he wasn't allowed to b/c he was on duty.

Well, I know if it did as bad as it does north. I would be like the retarded kid off his medication.
(not much of a stretch i know)

You would literally see me running out into the snow. Making snow angels. and hysterically playing in the snow

Snow... geez, I would love to get just four inches. Two winters ago the news station said during one hour we were hit with nine inches. Indianapolis is right where the High and Low pressures meet all of the time. We have the most strange weather here all of the time. Right now, August, it is supposed to be in the 90's and 100's the whole month. Last week our average high was less than 70 DEG F!!
