Okay... I confess that once upon a time I locked my keys in the car... While the engine was running. Yup. Brainiac here. It was an older model Honda, and when you wanted to lock the doors, you had to hold open the inside handle to flip the lever - it was actually designed so that people didn't inadvertenly lock themselves out of the car.

Anyway, long story short: I was putting a letter in the mailbox, got out of the car (engine running), and had gotten so used to getting out, opening the handle locking the door and, etc., that I did it as I got out to put the letter in the box. Fortunately, a friend had a spare key and was able to get it to me in about 30 minutes. But yeah... soooooo dumb.

Happily married since 2008

    Oh, Becks, that reminds me of something similar I did.

    A few years ago, my car was in the shop for some reason or another and I had a rental. You know how rental go, crap cars with nothing automated. The only car that I ever got in and out of on a regular basis that wasn't automated was my co-workers, and she was anal about always locking the doors. So I got in the habit all the time of locking doors, even if it wasn't a manual car.

    Anyway, I had this rental to the train station and I always park, then walk up and put my 4 quarters in the payment slot, then go back and sit in my car until the train comes. So I did that that morning, but had locked myself out! Just like, Rebecca, my car was running as well. I had to call my mom, who catches the same train a few stops before me, to see if she could look up AAA number for me, then I had to wait HOURS for them to show up while I sat in my moms car and waited for them! She was nice enough to drive down to my train station and get on the train there, so I could wait in her warm car and not be stuck outside freezing my ass off.

    Even better was that I had locked my cell phone in my car as well, so I had to go up to a random person on the platform and tell them what I did and ask to use their phone. Lovely.

      I was driving to my new job, second week there, got a flat tire going around a curve, got out of my car to check the tire and locked my keys in the car with it running...my cell phone was also in my car so I had to wait for some good samaritan to pull over. I live in Jersey so people just drove by looking at me for a good half hour before a cop finally saw me. By that time I was crying hysterically...

        LOL Nikki, that is so something I would do

        I do so many stupid things a day I make a point to forget them after they happen otherwise I would feel really bad

          I have an '04 Civic & I ALWAYS flick the lock button while holding the handle. They have a safety on mine though that will not allow you to lock if the keys are in the ignition! Thank God!!

          I have however put my keys on the passenger seat, got out of my car & locked the door behind me. It was one of those moments where I realized what I had done just as the door was shutting...it was like the slo-mo you see on TV.... nnnnnnnooooooooo!! LOL

          This story is not about me...it's about my cousin...but it's really funny. I'm not a great story teller but I will try my best! Here goes...
          There were a few of us sitting around playing board games, but cousin was sitting next to a friend of mine - him on the couch, her on the floor. They know each other, but are not close friends. She's leaning on his leg with her arm up over it and then starts holding his hand...meanwhile, her husband is sitting across the room!!! We all started busting out laughing...it was completely innocent...just out of habit with her hubby!!! Hmmmm...maybe it's not as funny if you weren't there! But we all still laugh about it!

              Hahaha! I did something similar to a co-worker! Except I leaned in for a kiss out of habit! That was awkward....especially because I was leaving for my wedding that day!

                I've shaken bottles before with the lids off. Salad dressing, A-1, etc. Salad dressing is the WORST to clean up! I guess I just like my stuff super mixed up that I shake, take the lid off and then sometimes forget and shake it again! Idiot.

                  i don't think i've ever done this, but every few months i will put my cereal bowl back in the fridge and leave the milk sitting out on the counter.

                  one stupid thing i ALWAYS do is when i get tickets or snacks at the movie and the cashier says "enjoy the movie" i can't help but say "thanks! you too!" in return. like those poor people at the theater need a reminder that i'm going to go see a movie and they have to stand there and keep working! (i believe this also applies to ticket agents at the airport!)
