Locked Keys In Car (Urban Legend)
Inspired by David Marshall over at http://opionator.wordpress.com/ I’ve come to the conclusion to drop the Urban Legends of Dumb Workers into a post or two… So prepare for the first Urban Legend…
But first let me explain what these Urban Legends of Dumb Workers are all about. They are the stories you hear every so often that happened to someone than later another person had the exact same experience, and your all like “Oh My God! What a coincidence!!” until you hear it for a third, and fourth and the legend continues as you find yourself travelling from jobsite to jobsite. Unsure how to react the next time you hear it, I try to fight the urge to simply finish the line for them, and explain that “It happened to nine other people I’ve met, I just wonder did you all goto the same place?”
Okay so the Urban Legend…
A couple dropped their car off to a dealership for it’s regulated car service and went out shopping (insert three urban myths here during shopping experience) and afterwards returned to the dealership to be heeded by the receptionist that their car keys were locked in the car.
Upon entering the workshop to see how the mechanic was going. He was working on unlocking the passenger side door and after some serious cussing and smashing his tools on the ground, the wife of the party decided to see if the keys were in the ignition or on the seat and instinctively pulled the lever up. To her surprise the door was unlocked.
“This door is unlocked” She noted to the mechanic, to which he replied “I know that, I’ve already done that side.”
Needless to say, they no longer go to that dealership to have their car serviced.
