Everyone Has Done This One...

Tech Gets Better

Picture yourself in a Walmart store, you spend an hour walking around the store, up and down isles, getting the things you need, and then cash out. You feel really good, the sales were excellent and they even had your size in the shoes and clothes you just bought. God bless Walmart.

After safely gliding through the door security, you head across the parking lot, trying to figure out where you parked. Silently you find yourself cursing for being so foolish as to forget where your car is parked. You reach into your right hand pocket of your jeans to fetch out the keys, knowing that with one click on the remote the car will give off a beep and let you know where it is.

o keys to be found! "I never put them in any other pocket other than my right front jean pocket, never," you say out loud now that you are talking to yourself.

Others are staying clear of you, suspecting some shictzo freek on drugs is in their midst - you are being avoided but you don't care; "Where are the damn keys," you cry out aloud. More people move away.

After searching all the pockets three times over, you finally admit that you have locked the keys in the car. The embarrassing thing about this is that when your wife did the very same thing last week you laughed so loud she didn't speak to you until this morning.

What to do?

A tow truck guy will soak you a fortune to use that crime tool they slip down inside the window to crack the lock. You have no cash on you either. And to boot, it is now starting a downpouring of rain, heavy damn rain.

"Hey, wait a minute," you yell out loud while the old lady across the lot flicks on her emergency key locks and stays inside her vehicle ranting away on her cell phone to someone, probably the 911 lady.

Anyway, you remember what the computer geek was saying at the last meeting of the Sarnia Computer User's Group. "Yes, I do remember," you now whisper to yourself as you smile.

Why is this guy smiling now?

Simple: He remembers exactly what the computer guy said:

"If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on your cell phone and ask them to get your car key with your remote device. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the other person at home press the unlock button on your remote while holding it near their phone. Your car will unlock. Distance is no object here. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the "remote" for your car, you will be able to unlock the doors (or the trunk) this way!"
(Kay Gutmann, Orange County IBM PC, User's Group member)

"Hey, I can't do that," the guy says as he begins his long walk home to sneak in the back door and get the spare keys. It seems that the only one home is his wife, the one who he had laughed when she did the same thing last week.

Author's Note: I do not know if this works, however it comes from a reputable source. Well, there is only one way to find out, isn't there! If it does work, boy what a great trick.

The moral of this story is that you must never laugh at your wife for loosing keys, as payback is hell.
