After Shopping At The Local Super Market
They were not in my pockets. Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. Frantically I headed for the parking lot.
My wife Elizabeth scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition. My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them. Her theory is that the car will be stolen.
When I got to the car park, I searched for my car but came to a terrifying conclusion. Elizabeth had been right about the car being stolen.
I immediately rang the Police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left the keys in the car and that it had been stolen.
Then I made the most difficult call of all. "Elizabeth Darling" I stammered. I always call her "Darling" in times like this. "I left the keys in the car and it has been stolen".
There was a long period of silence, then I heard Elizabeth say, "Frank" she barked, "I dropped you off".
Now it was my turn to be silent. Embarrassed I said, "I am very sorry Darling, please come and get me".
Elizabeth shouted back, "I will as soon as I convince this policeman that I have not stolen your car".
