Stranded and rescued, all before 9 a.m.

Snow is coming, and in New England you know what that means: get your ass to the grocery store a.s.a.p., and beat down all the little old ladies to stock up on milk and bread.
I decided to go early and avoid the crowd. I got front row parking! woot! As I shopped, my stress level was zero. No line at the deli. No screaming kids. I practically had the store to myself. Awesome.
I smiled and headed to the checkout and then home...
except when I got to my car, there were my keys sitting neatly on the passenger seat, next to my gloves.

crap.

Thankfully, my husband dropped everything and came with fob in hand to resuce me. (We tried that thing where you hold the fob to the phone and press it while the locked-out person hold their phone up to the car- urban myth or whatever- I felt like a fool.)

He is the best! Thanks babe!

Now that I've had a cup of coffee, and gotten my head together, I can relax with the Crazy Eights meme from Kerri

I've heard of that urban legend of holding the cell phone up to the car lock. i've always been tempted to test it.

I was always curious about that urban legend as well. I always doubted that worked. Considering the alarm \ keylock is a specific frequency and there is no way that the fequency would not get interrupted or changed through a lan line or through the cellular airwaves.

Glad that you made it home safe.
