How could I be so scatterbrained?

First, my fiance is out of town working right now, so I can't just get him to let me in and get the spare key to my car. I live in a condo, so the first thing I do is check to see if the strata president is home as she has access to a lock box with spare keys. Of course, she isn't home. So, I find a neighbour coming home from walking their dog, introduce myself and ask if I can borrow a phone. Luckily, she is nice and we go back to her place and lets me in.
I call my parents, who have a spare key and my Dad (who is luckily at home) drives out to my place with the spare set of keys and lets me in. We search high a low for the 2nd key to my car that my fiance has and it's nowhere to be found. I'm guessing he took it with him. Why? I have no idea as he can't drive my car when he is out of town.
So, the phone number for the auto assistance I have is through my dealership and the phone number is in the manual for the car, which is locked in my glove box. I stupidly thought that I would likely only ever use it if my car broke down .... So, I try calling the dealership as it's Friday night and they should be open late, right?? Nope. Luckily their answering machine gives the phone number to call. So I call that. They can't find me in the database at first. I'm speaking to a guy in Quebec I can barely understand through the thick accent. We finally get on the same page and they're dispatching a BCAA truck to assist.
I hope I don't have to wait too long. Thanks for letting me vent! I thought this would be a great weekend as I was finally getting around to dress shopping and am hoping to find "the dress". It can only get better, right?

Last time I did that was at 10 pm last year during the Dec "snowstorm" at lougheed walmart - with my purse, cell phone everthing in the car and the car was running and almost out of gas...so at least it wasnt winter
Glad it all worked out in the end.

My FI had already left town for the holidays, and the management company was closed for the evening. I called my manager at work just in case, and thankfully, he found the keys in the corner of the office. That was close!
