true story

March 30, 2012

I am really bad at locking my car doors. Like really bad and it drives Keith crazy.

Especially since I drive a car that has notoriously been on the most stolen car list for like the last 10 years running.


I come out from the grocery store and see my car. I start walking towards it loaded down with bags because I am that person who sees how many bags she can possibly fit on her arms as to avoid dragging that dang cart all the way into the parking lot.

Yeah that’s me.

Anyway, I get to my car and open the back door while struggling not to drop about 4 bags. I get the door open, silently cursing in my head about why don’t I just bring a stupid cart to my car. I get everything loaded in the backseat, walk around to the front. Get in and instantly realize….

Holy SH@T!!!! This isn’t my car!

This car (exactly like mine) was parked right next to me. I looked left and saw my car silently laughing at me.

I jumped out, ran around to the backseat trying to frantically gets my bags out of the stranger’s car while simultaneously looking over my shoulder to see if the owner was coming.

Omigsosh. Omigosh. Omigosh. Hurry up was all I could think.

I ran around the car to my car, opened my back door threw everything in (at this point not caring that I had fragile merchandise) hopped in my driver’s side and got the hell out of dodge.

I was shaking.

Of course Keith found it hysterical.

“Now if you would only lock your doors….”

Huh. Well apparently nobody locks their doors anymore.

Serious grocery store fail.

I still feel like I was on hidden camera or something.

    Too funny! But I am happy to hear I am not the only one who has done this. I also have gotten into the passenger side of the wrong car w/a total stranger sitting in the drivers seat.

    Oh my gosh! That is too funny! I’m glad the owner of the car didn’t come out of the store while you were taking your groceries out. I would have been embarrassed but probably would have laughed at myself if I did it at the same time 🙂

    It’s not only you. My grandmother has done that! And worse, she left her sunglasses in the other person’s car. Of course my grandmother is 90 years old… 🙂

    I have walked to the car I believed was mine and hit my unlock button, unloaded a full cart of groceries into trunk…only to hear the kids say…mom this isn’t our car!! I was completely embarrassed and I too was hoping the owner of that car didn’t walk up. I hurry up and load them in my truck and leave quickly. My kids still give me a hard time. Keith’s lock your car situation didn’t work for me!!

    hahaha I lock my doors, but never the hatch and I’m always secretly waiting for the moment this happens to me. Especially because I can NEVER remember where I parked.
