How could I be so scatterbrained?

Recommended Posts

So, I get home from work today and somehow manage to lock my keys in my car - can we say blond moment? smile105.gif My keys are sitting on the seat and my purse and wallet are out in the open on the passenger seat ....

 

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?

It seems as though my friend, Murphy, has shared his law with you as well lol Oh my, I have LOTS of days like these, and I just think "Why am I so stupid?" But when you've got a wedding on your mind, along with the 50-million other everyday things, letting things slip your mind gets much easier than before lol Just take a deep breath, go inside and have a nice cup of tea and laugh at yourself for having a "duh" moment lol Like I always say, "What else can I do but laugh at this point? I could cry I suppose, but I'd much rather laugh, and who better to laugh at than myself?"

DH did the same thing last night!! he thought it would be a quick fix by just calling triple a... not so much. apparently his membership was canceled (although his card clearly says the membership is good until 2010)!! something about being an associate member under his parents, and then once you turn a certain age they cancel it without warning. i have no idea, i don't have AAA, and never will. [hooray for geico roadside assistance and hyundai roadside assistance]

 

but anyway! it seems like easy problems can never really be "easy"!! maybe this just means you got your "DUH! moment" over with early for this year cheesy.gif

 

best of luck on the dress hunt!!

you are right- it will only get BETTER wink.gif

Update: Only had to wait an hour for the guy to come and break into my car. It took him a good 20 minutes to get in. In a way it's nice to know that it's not too easy to break into that way (there's always smashing the windows). I'm just glad to have my purse and keys back.smile123.gif

Glad it all worked out in the end.

I had a similar event aroudn the holiday time. I lost the keys to my apartment, but unfortunately, I was the key keeper of the building.

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!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
