Engine Running, Locked Out

So I am all ready to go to church this morning. Except for socks. So as I got to the garage to grab my socks from the dryer I start the SS so it can be warmed up by the time I’m ready. Once I get ready I find that the doors locked with the engine running. No problem. I have extras. The problem is I don’t know where they are at.

The last time I used them was a few months ago. I checked my secret stash for the keys and they are not there. I called Rob to see if he can come over with a Slim Jim to unlock the door but he is on his way to his parents Restaurant. I ask him if he could get away to come help me out. Meantime I am checking everywhere for the keys. No where to be found.

I start thinking that they may be in the Vette but the Vettes alarm is armed and the keys are in the SS. I don’t want to risk setting off the alarm with no keys so since the windows are cracked I used a broom stick to pop the glove box ever so gently and sure enough my spare SS keys are in there. I then unlock the doors from the inside with my hands, setting off the alarm, grab my SS keys, unlock it, search for the Vette keys and disarm it. Mission Completed and got to church about 20 minutes late.

    Actually I do, but when I pulled the factory radio out it was going to be a little costly to get Onstar to work with the aftermarket stereo so I opted out to save some money.

    Sorry Man . You knwo I would of loved to slip a metal bar thru the window .. I would of hurt me to do that , but I would of tried. I was running late and Im sorry I could not turn around .. I knew / felt that you would get it opened . I had a feeling if I took off back home to get it , that you would call me to tell me ” forget it , I got it ” . And I was right . !!

    too bad about the On Star that would of been cool to Mpeg the whole thing and film your locks opening infront of your eyes while on the Phone !!

    Next time man .
