Spare Key

After a small mishap the other night, I'm convinced that everybody should have a spare key on the outside of their car. I went on a solo mountain bike ride. I returned to my car around 8PM, started it up, and then got out of the car.

I didn't realize it until it was too late...the windows and sunroof were closed, all the doors and the trunk were locked, and the engine was running. My phone, wallet, and everything else I own was in the car.

After finding a cell phone to borrow, I realized that I don't actually know the phone numbers of any of my friends. The police station couldn't help me. After trying a coat hanger and any other possibilities, I called a tow truck company and paid $100 to unlock my car.

On a good note, I'm pretty sure it was the only night this week that it was not pouring rain.

Life lesson: have a spare key... ideally on the outside of your vehicle somewhere.
