    I drove my husband's car to the grocery store, went in and did my shopping. Bag boy followed me out and loaded them into the backseat. I got in the car and put the key in.. couldn't turn the key! Took it out and tried again..no go. I noticed a pillow on the passenger seat, and wondered where he got that!

    Then I realized that I was in the wrong car, and mine was parked next to it, so I got out and waved down another bag boy. He came over and I told him to please move the groceries from this car to the one next to it. Sweet kid, he starts moving groceries.. then a man and wife come up, pushing their cart..

    I'm so embarrassed, and tell him that I had my groceries loaded in the wrong car.. The man said "I usually lock my car".. Bet he doesn't skip that little chore next time! Now hubby does the shopping....

    After I watched a kid checking out cars on his way to school (25 years ago) I ALWAYS lock the car, no matter how quickly I'll be back. That showed me that even though he had to be to school in 5 min. he had time to look for trouble.

    My grandmother did that once. She had a yellow Mustang in the '60's and she went to get into her car after work and there were THREE yellow Mustangs lined up! She had to try each one to find hers! That was back in the day when people generally didn't lock things up.

    I've done that but only with the key trying to unlock. Then look around to see if I was seen (embarrassed) before I scoot away!

    Oh yes, I've done that too--and recently. Seems every other car in the parking lot these days, is a grey Honda. And since it was DH's that I was driving, couldn't remember the licence plate. Finally figured out which one was 'mine' by hitting the lock remote and zoning in on the 'beep'.

    I came out of LQS last year and used my key fob to open door of "my" car. When I got it I noticed all these children's books on front seat. Looked around and my car was 2 over. As I am getting out, this lady walks up and I explained what happened. I don't think she really believed me until she clicked her key fob and unlocked my car as well. Found out she purchased her car in Virginia. Called Lexus and yes, it is rare but there are duplicate fobs.

    I went to get into my car and wondered what happened to my dog. Identical cars but this was much cleaner. I looked up and saw my dog in the other car (mine)and I knew he was laughing at the stupid human trick.

    I can so see that happening.

    It's scary is when the key works in another car. Back when cars had separate keys for door & ignition, my escort key worked in my folk's Mercury. I had grabbed the wrong set of keys and didn't realize it until I couldn't turn the car on.

    DH opened somebody else's RV once.

    A year or so ago I came out of a store back into the crowded parking lot, tried and tried to open the car door, it was too hard with one arm full of grocery bags. I finally noticed a suitcase in the back seat, and heard a man behind me laughing. I apologized but since both cars were almost identical, both nearly the same year and both a silver/gray Saturn, so he fully understood. .thankfully.
