    I only exit thru dead bolted doors so I have to have my keys. A few times I walked out to the car with people when they were leaving and they came out after me and thought they were doing me a favor by locking the knob lock, and thus locking me out. I have a key hid to get into my shed which has a house key well hiden in it so my friends can't lock me out when I am not paying attention

    But he's OUR dick.

    ....wait, that came out wrong. Anyways....

    I love AAA. They jumpstarted my car two days in a row and towed it 15 miles home back in August. Barely costed me more than $45 for the tow.

    Now the battery and the cab ride, that was another story.....

    In other news, I no longer have that car, AND I'm $1,500 richer because of it. Now it can be someone else's problem child.

    I've never loved Benjamin Franklin more. Such a glorious, beautiful man. I want to rub my nipples with your likeness, Benjamin.




    Ahem. What were we talking about now? @G30SF/F-250, how dare you.

    Separate trips just for gas? Just fill up while you are allready out. Problem solved. And as others have stated, all you lost was a few bucks. Nobody got hurt or killed or anything like that. No biggie.

    In hindsight, I should have just come back inside and stayed warm for the night. Sigh. At least I'd still have my Safeway points.

    I keep a key hidden, for the house. Also a house key on my set of car keys. Which are always on me. Used to carry a house key in my wallet. You may want to adjust your security system a bit.

    I had to pay for an unlock once, never again. I got keys for the house and car hidden everywhere! I also like installing the combo lock doorknobs. You can get fancy with little motors in them that will open with your cell phone or simple with just a manual number punch and then you turn the knob.

    Can't lock myself out. My door has only a deadbolt.

    $268? Lord that’s expensive. But if you need it, it’s worth it I suppose. The one time it happened to me I was charged $95.

    That is one of those expensive lessons where you won't ever let that happen again.

    I leave extra keys in a location where I can tell someone to bring them to me. Even that is a pain for the person who has to take time to retrieve them for me.

    A little armchair quarterbacking 20/20 hindsight....

    For $268 buy a cordless drill and some bits and drill the hell out of the locks until they cry uncle.

    Or break a window like you mentioned.

    If only my drill wasn't INSIDE the house at the time, lol.

    And I made a mistake....it was actually $265. Not that I feel any better about that....

    On an off-note, I got an emailed receipt from the guys who did it.

    And that's great. Very nice.

    Except for one thing......I never gave them my email address.

    Apparently, this is a big problem with Squareup, which is the program/app/system/whatever that they used. Now my email is stored with these people, and I don't even know how they got it.

    What a great night....

    Ok I have to ask, why in the world go out late at night for gas? Just curious.

    Why not? I had more than enough time when I went to leave. It was only about 7:30.

    Stupid should be an expensive lesson, you're smarter now.

    Also, who goes out after they are in fir the night to get gas?

    And how do you lock a deadbolt door behind you without the key?

    Well, it's easy to do when the DOORKNOB has a lock.....

    And why the **** does it matter what time I go out to get gas? Nobody here has answered me that yet. I worked graveyard for 6 straight years....I bought gas at 2 and 3 in the morning....you people are *****ing at me about a 7:30 PM gas run? Get over it.
