Locked car and still running

So two nights ago my son somehow locked his keys in the car while it was still running.  So at 4am he knocks on our bedroom door to let us know.  Dh told me to get a wire hanger for him.  I searched every closet and couldn't find ONE, lol.  Then it occurs to me that dh saved some of his old Army uniforms and had them dry cleaned so I knew I could find one in the attic where he keeps them.  How I was able to think that clearly at 4am I don't understand, lol.
Anyway, the wire hanger trick didn't work so hammer to the back window it was.  My poor son can't catch a break.
At least it was only about $130 to fix it.  Dh took it today to get the new window installed and went and had spare keys made.  I guess when they bought it after his last wreck it didn't come with a spare and we never thought about it.

It really does but at least it didn't cost him too much.  At least he didn't have to buy another car, lol.

Wow, that does suck. Glad it didn't cost him a whole lot. I can't believe you remembered there would be wire hangers from the dry cleaner! I know we haven't any in our house for years.
