Yeah, that was me this morning.

I had been off for two weeks. No thought of work or anything really related to it.

Digression....the last day of work before the Christmas break, a company came out and rekeyed my office. They handed me a ring with five new keys on it as I was preparing to leave the building.

Back to this morning. Something hit me about 6:30 a.m. that I had not seen my keys. I searched the car, two purses, all my pant pockets, and jacket pockets. I searched all the little tote bags I carry around, and again I searched the car, two purses, all my....

Finally, I went on in. We called Lock Doc and waited a couple of hours. Two nice guys--one of which had rekeyed my office--came out. They opened my door, and there on my desk --- four new keys. Then it hit me!

That day two weeks ago as I was leaving I quickly took one of the keys and put it on my keyring! I had it all the time!

Eeeewwwww! Yes, you have permission to laugh. Everyone else did.

I did, too.

P.S. Those nice guys did not charge me!


  1. It is funny....but we have all done things like that! :-)

  2. Hi! diana, so happy:) to know that I am not the only one that does things like this all the time! Cute Post, and I love Lucy! I will have to do a post on Lucy and Ethel! and what these 2 characters mean to me! Ha-Ha! Have a great Tuesday!

  3. Well, friend, Ethel, here has done more than her fair share of things like this. One time my hubby and I were all dressed up. We ate at a nice place...I had the keys to the car in my hand...he said..throw me the keys...I did (literally) and watched in fascinated horror as they slipped through the only 4" grate in the whole parking lot and down into the sewer. Hugs-Diana

  4. That sounds like something I would totally do...

  5. I returned to work after two week of vacation, also.
    I did have my key but had trouble remembering my password. Oh well, it all worked out.

  6. Oh man! What a way to start the new year at work... :)

  7. Makes me feel better to know there are others... ;)

  8. I LOVE LUCY! :> )

    Good morning, Diana~

    You are so not alone in this department. We have all done something like that one time or another.

    When we were growing up, my sister accidentally threw out her keys at a Burger King one night. They had to come and remove the ignition switch so she could get home. LOL! Laughing about is the best medicine!



  9. Oh, isn't that SO ANNOYING!!! Hope you have a good day today. :-)

  10. So glad the keys were found...even if it meant calling in the LockDoc! :)

    Hope the rest of your week goes smoothly!

  11. So nice you could have a sense of humor about such a frustrating incident!! Glad you 'found' your key! Happy New Year!! God bless you this week as you ease back into work! :)

  12. So, they were REALLY Nice guys!
    Oh, I can certainly relate! The problem is that you forgot how "efficient" you were by promptly putting one key on your ring. It sure happens to me from time to time. LOL

  13. Hi sweet friend, I have to laugh too because although I haven't done that exact thing I always do dumb stuff. It's because you have so much important stuff clogging your brain that you/we just forget the non-essentials.
    Happy New Years to you, God's blessings to you and yours.
    Hugs, Noreen

  14. I have had days like that that is a cute story.

  15. I LOVE the 'I Love Lucy' pic! Went perfectly with this post!! Glad to know you are a 'bag lady' as well....I ALWAYS carry my purse, a book and usually a tote bag of some sort. I have been know to put my purse AND book inside the tote...just to cut down on the cluttered look of a 'Bag Lady'.....

  16. LOL sounds like something I would do...I Love Lucy...

  17. I just saw a segment on Marylou Henner who is one of only 6 people that remember every day of their lives. Wonder which would be better??
