  • There is nothing wrong with locking your keys in your car. What's bad, is having a dad who's a locksmith, and locking your keys in your car - multiple times! Yep, that's me. I bet I did it 5 times before he found my insurance card, and 5 times after - the difference was after he charged me, because my insurance reimbursed me!'ll never happen again as long as have my current car - it has the push-button pad to unlock it! I still use my key, but just in case I ever do it I can call DH for the unlock code (I can't remember it for anything!). Really funny thing is, my dad, the locksmith, hides a key on his own vehicles, for just-in-case! (and no, I'm not sharing his secret, lol!)

  • For my first car I used to always do this! Thank God for my car now because it won't lock with the keys inside and the lights will stay on.

  • I haven't locked them in the car but I have dropped them in the trunk and then shut that with no way of opening the trunk from the inside. An officer ended taking out the backseat of my car so that I could get the keys back.

  • I did it in a parking lot, with my baby daughter inside! The police had to come, so embarrassing.

  • Juggalette, I've dropped them in the trunk too! With groceries in the trunk in the middle of summer!
