You all know mom is making pats potato's for Easter. Well she had me go to the store today to pick up a few things we needed to make them. I'm listenin' to music the whole way there ( kind of loud )and I finally get to the store and put the car in park. I go to take the key out of the ignition and the key wouldn't come out. I just shrug it off and try to restart the car and then turn the car off again in hopes I would be able to take the key out. NOPE. Instead the car doesn't start at all. I try about three times again to get the car start and or try to get the key out of the ignition. I stop and think. I start to panic because I think that I listened to the music maybe too loud and wore out the battery. Nah couldn't be because the music wasn't THAT loud. I try to take the key out again and when I fail I try to restart the car. That doesn't work either. I panic and reach for my cell. CAN'T CALL EITHER. NO TIME LEFT OF MY PHONE!!! Now I really panic. I remove the lock thingy from the key chain so I can get out and get to a pay phone. Once I get out of the car the lock button doesn't work but the unlock does. I panic more. Then think 'well if I hurry no one will come fast enough besides that they wont get far!' So I ran to a pay phone reach in my wallet and pull out 5 pennies. Crap! That was all I had for change. That's all I really had anyway. Then I nervously walk up to the service desk, put both hands on the counter, lean over and say " I'm in a horrible situation! My car wont start. I have five pennies, no cell phone and I need a phone.!" She hands me the phone and dials the number. Mom picks up and I tell her in panic mode that the car has died. She asks me a series of questions like " Is the car in park?" YES! " The keys won't come out?" NO " AND YOU LEFT THE CAR UNLOCKED WITH THE KEYS IN IT" I'M TRYING TO HURRY SO I CAN GET BACK OUT THERE. " Get back out there and I will be there in a minute."
So I go back to the car. Try one more time. This time I must've moved the steering wheel just right with my left hand and the key came out of the ignition. I sighed in relief leaned back and began laughing hysterically. Dan came to the rescue but I didn't need him to. However I'm thankful he came anyway. I tried to tell him what happened without sounding like a complete idiot, but there's no way you can say it without sounding like a complete idiot. So I walked into the store and carried on my way trying to act as if nothing happened but I felt like the whole world was laughing at me.
I tell this story myself because I know my mother and she will make it another "break time story about my dumba** daughter" thing.
