How I spent my Friday afternoon

This is me...

Do you know what I'm doing?

Let me fill you in.  By the time I took this picture I was bored. 
I'd been sitting in my car for almost an hour.  Waiting.  Waiting for my mom to get home so she could let me in the house. 

 Yup, I locked myself out. 

I stopped home from work quick.  I was just gonna run in the house, grab my new debit card and run to the bank to take care of something on our account. For some reason I thought it was a good idea to lay my keys down on the table while I opened the mail and got what I needed.  I don't know why I thought that was a good idea...because you wanna know what I did just 40 minutes prior to arriving at home?

Sure you do, cuz it's freaking hilarious!

When I left work at 2pm, I took our outgoing mail with me.  On Fridays we have to send all our paperwork to the main office.  So we drop it in the mail box in front of another nearby business.  Well, I was able to grab the parking spot directly in front of the mailbox.  Score!
I left the car running, jumped out, dropped the mail in, got back to the vehicle.  LOCKED! What?  How the hell?  I tried every freaking door.  All locked.  Now what?

I went into the travel agency and asked to use their phone.  Who do I call?  The only other person with a key is my hubby who was at work and probably couldn't anwer the phone.  So I ended up calling the local police to unlock the door.  We've dealt with them plenty of times before at the store when customers have done the same thing.  So I thanked them for letting me use the phone and went outside to wait.  Wondering if it would be one of the officers I knew and how bad they'd make fun of me!  Wondering how long I'd be waiting there because I was supposed to be at the bank by 2:30!

Luckily he was there within 5-10 minutes.  I'd seen this officer before but he's not one of the ones I see regularly and who would have laughed their butts off at me!  He did his thing and I was out of there in no time.  Cool I'll only be 10-15 minutes later to the bank then I planned.  WRONG! 

It was almost 4pm by the time my mom saved the day.  Two hours I will never get back!  I cannot believe I locked myself out not once but TWICE in one day within 45 minutes of each other. 
What a bonehead! 

Welcome to my world.

Oh girl, what a bummer! I always keep an extra key to my house and my vehicle in my purse...because I would definitely do that!
