I got out of the car, and went to the spot of where the geocache was supposed to be, then I went back to the car. As soon as I got there, I couldn’t get in. Then I realized I left my keys in the ignition, and worse, I locked them in the car. I felt devastated that I did such a dumb thing (at least the engine wasn’t on).
My car is a green 99 Cougar the Gym Rat gave me that kind of works as a sports car. I waited and waited for almost an hour mumbling to myself that Mom would be worried that she thought I would go somewhere else without telling her. And the worst thing was that I didn’t have my cell phone with me. I didn’t think to bring it because I thought dropping off the geocache would only take a second.
As far as I could see, I only had two choices to make, throw a rock at the glass to unlock the car, or walk home to get a spare key. I couldn’t throw the rock, because I kept thinking it would cost a lot of money to replace a new window, and I couldn’t walk home, because I was afraid someone would come and steal my car especially since the keys were locked inside.
I kept on praying hard to get help. Just then, a man came over and asked me if I needed help. I said yes, and I asked if I could use his phone. I tried to call Mom’s cell on his, but it only said her voice message, so I tried the house phone and Princess answered and when I told her about it, she suggested to me that I should just walk home. I told her I couldn’t because it’d be a bad idea to leave the car with the keys locked in it. But I had to trust Princess, and I hoped she was right. So I gave the phone back to the man, and then I started to mostly run home.

As soon as I got there, I got the spare key out of my pocket and unlocked the car. Then I had to figure out how to get the bike in the car. I put the back seats down and the bike fit perfectly. Then I drove home.
I learned a lesson that I have to make sure I get my keys out of the ignition before getting out of my car, make sure my phone is with me, and if all else fails, trust Princess...she's usually right!
