I think I need to write a book about some of the stupidest things I’ve done… just got home from one of those ‘adventures!’ Enjoy!
I had done some shopping and came out of Walmart only to discover that I had locked my keys in my car… on the console – no clue how I did that! At first I thought maybe someone had broke into the car , stole something , and being nice took the keys out of the ignition and put it on the console, yeah, I know, that was a stupid thought!
Okay, before we go further, let me explain some things so you will understand why things happened they way they did. We recently painted my car and the door lock on the drivers side
got broke so we had to buy one from the junk yard therefore we had to have a key made just for that door. That key was in the car. I had already discovered when I took the spare set of keys out of my purse that I didn’t have a spare key for that door… my hubby had it on his key chain… I remembered saying I was going to have another key made for my spare keys which of course I hadn’t done. Also, they had to disconnect the passenger side lock so I couldn’t unlock that door therefore I couldn’t get into the car. “Priceless!”
Anyways, for the first time ever this year I had left the windows cracked (don’t know why because I’ve become paranoid someone will break into my car and steal it therefore I don’t leave the windows cracked – okay, GOD MADE ME DO IT! ☺️ ) and the passenger side window was open more than the drivers side. I put the pizza I had bought to cook later on top of the car and went around to the door but realized the window wasn’t open enough to be able to get my arm through so I started to call AAA meanwhile I got my pizza and set it in the shade of the truck next to me.
There was a gentleman in that truck next to me so I asked him if he had a wire hanger which he didn’t. Then I thought I might have one in the trunk so I opened the trunk with the spare key, nope…. I remember having one in there, musta got taken out when it got cleaned out. 🤨 Well, I knew it was possible to get into the back seat from the trunk so I asked the gentleman in the truck if he knew how to do it, he said No, cuz he wasn’t a master thief and I said Yeah, me either so that’s out, and we laughed.
I went back to the passenger door and pushed on the window and “for some reason” opened maybe another inch. I looked at it and hung up with AAA before they answered (I was on hold), I thought I could now get my arm in it. I tried but the metal was really hot so I was getting burnt. I remembered I had an eye glass cleaner towel in my purse so I got it out and the gentleman gave me a bottle of water to wet the towel down. Yes, we were still cracking up.
I wet it down, wrapped my arm with it and tried to get my arm in the window. Eventually got it partway through the window but not far enough to bend my elbow so I could unlock the door so I pulled my arm out and stood there for a moment thinking. Then I had this brilliant thought “I was using my right arm and that arm would be bigger than my other one because I’m right handed!” So I switched arms, rewet the towel and got my arm in and eventually got the arm in and the door unlocked!
Yeah! I shouted “Praise God! Halleluia!” We had church until I discovered I couldn’t get my arm out! 😶😮 Guess it musta swelled. Meanwhile the gentlemans son came to the truck, got in and was drinking something when he saw that there was on an old gray haired woman with a Amish looking straw hat on her head with her arm stuck in the window in the car next to the truck! His mouth dropped open and said “What in the world?” Hope he didn’t get his drink all over himself!
While I was standing there laughing I said to the gentleman, “Hey, the door is unlocked, would you go in the car and get the keys, open the drivers door and open the window?” So he got out of the truck, got the keys, and went around to the driver door and I explained about which key to use. Meanwhile I poured some more water over the towel and started working my arm again and suddenly my arm slid out of the window! I had church again!
After we had a good laugh and I thanked the man for his help, I picked up my pizza, which was probably already starting to cook, got in the car and headed home. I called the hubby, who was at a friends house helping his friend build his new house, I knew he would have enjoyed the story and so would his friends, I keep the hubby entertained. Hope he wasn’t on a ladder cuz, needless to say he laughed pretty good!
I wish someone had been there to video this escapade! It would have gone viral, I’m sure!!!!!! 🤣😂
Oh yeah, before all this happened I had stopped into the Eye Glass Shop and was talking to the Optician. I saw he had the blue blocker stuff on his glasses like I do so I asked him if he ever saw the purply blue color on the inside of the glasses when light hit it from behind. Of course he said no and he had never heard of anyone who had, you are not suppose to see the blue color on the inside of the glasses. I asked him if he ever saw glitter like lights along the edge of the glasses or on the top of his cheek… of course not and he had never heard of anyone who had. He told me I must be special…. he had no clue how right he was!
