    Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel; and lost my keys.
    I searched the hotel room; they were not in my pockets.
    A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.
    Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car.
    Frantically, I headed for the parking lot.
    My wife has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition.
    My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them.
    Her theory is that the car will be stolen.

    I couldn't find my car in the parking lot.
    I came to a terrifying conclusion.
    Her theory was right.
    I immediately called the police.
    I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car,
    and that it had been stolen.

    Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered;
    I always call her "honey" in times like these.
    "I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen."

    There was a period of silence.
    I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard her voice.
    "Idiot", she barked, "I dropped you off!"

    Now it was my time to be silent.
    Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me."
    She retorted, "I will, just as soon as I convince this policeman I didn’t steal your car."

    Yep it's the golden years.

    Well, only because I don't live in the house but in the 3 story condo building It sends a "signal" to my brain to use a key to the building. LOL

    I have been a butt before though and tried to open other people's garage doors as I am going by ( I'm bad ). It has never worked for me but I have heard of it being done. I'm bad.

    they were pips. they had 911 on speed dial. we had the cops show up twice looking for an emergency.

    that was about when we figured that it was getting close to the time they had some sort of care.

    I guess that when you are distracted you do silly things. I do too, but I haven't done that yet ( Actually, that's mainly because I don't have a car so no car remote for me to mix my keys with! LOL)

    It can be donw with Xfinity now. There's an App for that.

    As to the Car, we have a Prius, and you have the keys in your posession, it lets you in. No ignition either, just carry the keys, and you start and go.

    Does make it a problem when we valet however if I forget to leave them the Key.

    LOL. My car's remote hasn't worked since I got the car...so I don't even use it on the car, let alone anything else. If it were functional though, I could see myself doing it.

    between the remotes for the
    Truck/Suv
    Garage doors
    Security system
    House doors ..
    it does get confusing indeed ..
    I have to carefully FEEL the configuration of the buttons ..
    to note which is which ..
    (and now .. there's also the ability to lock/unlock with one's smartphone too .. )

    Usually when my hands are full and I am tired. You know they have keyless remotes for doors now. I think it's a cool idea.
