    Well ,i got the phone call this morning ,"sorry to trouble you at work " but ive lost the Moho keys ,i had them in my bag and can find them.
    So all day today i kept texting the moho to make sure that it was still there ,tonight i got home ,checked the car first ,turning it upside down as you do ,then off to the secure parking to check the moho to see if i could find her keys ,not a sniff
    I drove home and the crap going through my head ,"what if her keys got nicked at the newark show by thieves targetting our moho" "how much is this goin to cost ?,eddie van bitz alarm fobs ,new keys aww bu***r what if i need to change the locks?
    back at the house ,i enquired as to what handbag she was using ,was it the one with the open top ? no it was the drawstring one ,as i looked at it ,i asked i take it that you checked the zipped up part (being a bloke we dont know what to call that part) ,it was the look on her face that said it ,one of those expressions of realisation ,the keys were still in the ***king bag :rolleyes::mad::D

    I can't comment too much on this because a couple of weeks ago I lost her car keys whilst walking the dogs on a Sunday morning, I had driven out into the countryside to give them a good run, then had to get the father in law to drive over to meet me with the spare key :whistle:.

    for the first few days i kept the alarm fob with the keys, then had one of those Doh moments and realised it was better kept apart from the keys..:) , i don't always use the non start facility.

    LOL! Love it, although couldn't be better than when we went on a trip to the Algarve in my car, which is keyless, so the key fob only has to be in the proximity of the car. I am very nervous about losing keys, so I gave the spare fob to my wife.

    On one of our stops, I happen to notice that wife no longer has her handbag, so I say "where's your handbag?", "In the car" she replies, "is the spare key in your handbag?" I enquire. "Yes, why?" she replies, My response isn't very repeatable, but needless to say I hurried out to the car and retrieved said handbag, since the car was essentially unlocked, and indeed drive-able, since there was a bloody key in the car GRRR!

    Got to love modern technology! :D

    As a woman ... I must advise you that it is part of our attraction that we HAVE to lose our keys at LEAST once a day....

    Any woman that doesn't ... then beware as she may not be what she appears to be.

    I had one of those key systems on my car but had the opposite problem. I ask Jean that she carries the spare key with her since the following incident:-

    We had decided to have a day out at a public garden somewhere near Oxford (about 2.5 hours drive). It was a pleasant day and we had packed a picnic for lunch. I had started the car and just as we were about to move off I decided I wanted to take a particular CD from the house to play en route so I jumped out of the car, unlocked the front door and rummaged about to find the CD. I hopped back in the car, the engine was running, off we went and had a pleasant drive to find these gardens. On arrival we reached the car park and I pressed the START/STOP button on the dashboard. Nothing happened, the engine didn't stop! I tried a few times then thought it must be unable to detect the key fob. Reached for the fob and it was't there! Then it dawned on me. When I went back to the house I'd used my keys to open the front door and while rummaging for the CD must have put them down on the desk and not picked them up. As the car had already been unlocked and the engine running I hadn't missed them. Not only could I not stop the engine, I couldn't lock the car. After trying to think of options there was nothing for it but to drive all the way home again and we had our picnic in the back garden. Some day out that was!
    Like I say, ever since that day Jean carries her keys as well (with a spare fob for mine). After all when would the manufacturers expect a driver to unlock a car, start the engine then take the keys and leave them elsewhere? :doh:

    Went to lunch with a few friends in one of their brand new Holden Commadore, this model did not have the quarter lights. Had a nice lunch couple of beers. Went back to the car only to find he'd locked the keys inside.
    He went to a nearby dry cleaners and begged a wire coathanger, when unravelled we were trying to get it in the window to lift the handle inside.
    Along came this Maori kid, on the at the time new in line skates "What yu doin' mate?"
    We explained keys in locked car tec etc
    "Give me 10 bucks and I'll open it for yu"
    Mate coughed up $10

    The little bugger kept flicking the door handle and thumping under it with his fist, the door lock button rose a fraction each time he thumped the door, until the door opened
    "Where did you learn that Cuz?"
    As he rode away he shouted over his shoulder "where d'yu think I got me skates from?"

    Speak for yourself..
    I ALWAYS LOSE KEYS, it comes with the old age forgetfulness and general stupidity actually because the wife has put them away safely.

    In Annecy we parked up the motorbike, put helmets under the seat and slammed it shut, only then remembering that I had placed the keys in the helmet. No way to open the seat.

    After a few minutes another bike turned up and I asked if I could borrow his tool kit. He was quite happy until he saw I was "breaking into" the secure seat. I explained what had happened and he kept a very close eye on me until, after getting the seat open, I held up my keys for him to see.

    Smiles and thanks all round, followed by a round of beers and a bo11**ing from the wife.
