Lost keys…Again!

I guess I shouldn’t assume that EVERYONE has lost their keys at one time or another, but knowing the number of times I have done it, I do assume almost everyone has done it at least once.

I lost my damn keys again! I shrugged thinking that since it was the weekend and I didn’t HAVE to go anywhere, it wasn’t really a big deal. For the 1000 times that I did, end up needing to get something out of my car, I just used Einstein’s set. I looked for them for about a 1/2 hour a day until Sunday came and I still hadn’t found them. At this point I had to enlist Einstein’s help. He helped me retrace my steps that I remember taking the day that I think I lost them.

We checked both of our cars even moving the seats and checking trunks. I had mowed the lawn over the weekend so MAYBE I might have put them in my pocket? ( Surprising as hell if you saw my “wad” of keys) I had done and put away all of the laundry for the week, so I rechecked all the clothes in the closet, and dresser. I checked the washing machine and dryer. I even looked in the refrigerator to see if somehow I put them in there while I was carrying groceries in. Where the hell else could they be?!??!?!?

I don’t give my keys to anyone ever! I don’t let anyone other than Einstein drive the car and he has his own. Seriously now what?!?!?!?

After two hours of seriously and directly looking for my keys, I needed to sit down. I happened to be near our front door where my “new” rollator walker was positioned, so I sat there. As I was beating myself up about how I could have lost the keys AGAIN, I remembered that I used the rollator to carry in the heavier items. I stood up, lifted the bench seat and Eureka there they were! I almost cried.

I really need to stop losing my damn keys. I bought a “tile” chip to put on my keys, but could never get my phone to connect to it, and didn’t like that the chip had to be replaced yearly. Maybe I should try using one again?

I assume at some point in your life you have lost your keys. What is the longest amount of time you’ve lost them for? Did you also have to enlist help to find them? Where did you find them?

  1. If it makes you feel any better, Grace, you’re definitely not the only one who’s lost their keys…. One time I remember vividly was actually when my husband lost his. We were moving from Florida to Virginia, and he had been packing up our SUV for the trip. Well, he got done packing and we wanted to go get some dinner, but he couldn’t find his keys anywhere. We looked everywhere we could think of, to no avail. Finally, we decided to just go get dinner and look some more after we got back. I grabbed my keys, and off we went. A few miles down the road, I saw something metallic-looking fly off the hood. Yep, you guessed it – it was his keys. We were lucky; I paid attention to where they landed, so we were able to go back and get them. I’m really glad you found yours!

  2. Keys, wallet and eyeglasses. Those are the things I am constantly misplacing and it pisses me off to no end. Cell phone cane be added to that list too, but that’s an easy one as all I have to do is call the number and follow the ring tone
