I Was Distracted

Today was a great day. I had orders. I was facing. I helped customers. I cashiered for a bit. Was out the door and heading for home shortly before 5 p.m. I had plans for supper already in mind and the couch was calling my name very loudly.

I pulled into the parking space and tossed my keys onto the passenger seat before getting out to plug the car in. Closed the car door and proceeded to plug the car in. Turned around and grabbed the handle and pulled. And pulled.

I looked in and there were my car keys with my masks and water bottle.

I walked around the car. Tried the passenger door. Tried the trunk. Tried to see if I could maybe get a coat hanger in but no there was no doing that.

I rang the neighbor’s doorbell and put a call into P. Who of course was not in town but almost home. So I guilted her into coming back and letting me into my apartment. Because she has a key. I sat upstairs with my neighbor and got to chat with him for a little bit. He is very sweet.

P arrived and let me into the apartment. I grabbed my spare car key and went out to get the keys, water bottle and masks from the car. Feeling like a bit of an idiot as well. Like seriously I must have automatically locked the door.

After we got my keys I took P over to Co-op and put a bit of gas into her van for her. She did turn around and come back into town for me it was the least I could do for her. We then sat in her van and talked for about half an hour.

My couch is no longer calling my name as I am seated upon it. Supper is ready and I just finished watching ‘As We See It’ on Prime. I started yesterday and finished today. Now I will throw on The Simpsons and eat.

Have a terrific Tuesday night.

  1. Oh my. I once locked the keys in the car, with my 18-month old daughter inside! We had stopped to get gas and my husband left the car keys on the seat while he gassed up. I accidentally locked the door. My daughter was strapped in her car seat and couldn’t unlock the door. (My younger daughter would have been out of that car seat in a flash. LOL) We called CAA and told them and they were there in no time.
