    Default i did the dumbest thing today...

    ...and the freakiest thing is that i swear i heard someone talking about how they did it like the day before, either that or it was a dream i had (total deja vu moment).

    i turned the ignition on in my car so the A/C would get going (it was actually HOT today, contrary to popular belief that it only rains in Seattle - it was upwards of 90 degrees), and closed the door so the air wouldn't come out and so i could put my son into his car seat.

    and the doors AUTOMATICALLY locked themselves! they NEVER do that! i've done this before (started the car and closed the door so i could do something else). so i was stuck outside my car in the muggy heat, holding my 2-year-old son, no keys, no purse or wallet, no cell phone (yup, all inside the car)... in West Seattle. and i live on the "Eastside" wayyy deep, across two bridges, so my spare key was about 2 hours round-trip away.

    *sigh* anyway... ended up calling a tow truck service. just can't believe it actually happened to me, i've never locked my keys in before (at least, not while the car was running!). i guess it was bound to happen.

    at least the car was nice and cool inside once i got it open.

    oooh, you're lucky that you hadn't put your son in the car already! I always get paranoid of locking the doors accidentally with my kids inside that I always put the keys on the roof of the car when i'm putting stuff in. I also get paranoid that I had not put my kids in the car and had just driven off. so i find myself checking the backseat every now and then to check that everyone's tucked in. can never trust mummy brain. LOL!

    Oh my gosh, what an horrible day to have that happen! Although, I don't know what's worse.. being locked out in on extremely hot day vs pouring rain. lol.

    But yeah, today was extremely hot for seattle.. too hot, that's why I had to cut my shopping trip in half. I couldn't stand it. I thought I was going to faint from the heat.

    ^ lol 90 degrees is pretty close to unbearable here, since we don't all have central AC...

    thanks everyone, i felt pretty dumb but then again it is true that it could have been worse if my son had been in the car! i'm feeling lucky.

    yea you should feel lucky.... I feel paranoid too everytime I have to go out, so I always always check I'm holding the car keys when I'm putting my son in... That's my worst fear, locking my son inside the car...

    OMG I did the same thing a few months back. I was hopping out of the car to put a letter in a mailbox at the post office and I got locked out. My doors never lock automatically either! Luckily I had my cell in my back pocket. Now I always leave my window down when I get out of the car when it's running.

    Don't feel stupid! I'm glad your son was not in the car!!
