This one will be hard to beat. Yesterday, after parking at Target and setting my keys on top of the car while I arranged my purse, I actually forgot to take my keys with me into the store. That's right--I just left them sitting on top of my car, out in the open, for over an hour while I shopped.I didn't realize what I had done until I got back to my car and there they were, glistening in the sun.
At first I was amazed that neither my car nor anything in it was stolen, but after putting a little more thought into it I've decided that maybe I've accidentally stumbled upon an innovation in car safety. I mean, think about it: who is going to steal a car in a situation like that? Even the dumbest thief has to assume it's some kind of setup, right?
Either way, I'm pretty impressed with myself. For years I thought I was dumb every time I locked my keys inside my car, but this was even worse.
