    New garage door opener nearly identical in size to Ford switchblade fob.
    I even put a new battery in it and it still wouldn't open the door.

    Bought my first out board boat. The kind that starts with an ignition switch. The first fishing trip I made the 40 minute drive to Summit Lake. Forgot the key, so I hot wired it and didn’t catch a thing. The Boat turn out to be a night mare to own. So it turned to be bonehead successive moments and I learned what the letters for BOAT stands for. B-ust O-ut A-nother T-housand

    She hasn't missed one either.
    Just because you're at the center of the Universe doesn't mean you're in it.

    I did that once going to Monroe from Indy. My then roommate buddy asked me why I ever took the key out of the ignition. "Do you think someone is going to start the boat and drive it off the trailer while it's in the driveway?" Ever since then, I've left the key in the ignition (although I do keep a spare set in the truck glove box).

    And as a variation on what you said, "A boat is a hole in the water that you pour money into."

    Could have been worse. You could have set the guns on the roof while loading the car then lost them somewhere along the way.

    I can easily see me doing that.
    Medium speed. Moderate drag.

Closest dealer who would facilitate the deal was in Hanson, KY. No problem, quick 40 minute jaunt down the road.

    I get up, double check both pistols are in the case (I gave him choice) and then showered and dressed. I drive down and as I am pulling into the FFL's drive, I realize I left the guns at home...40 minutes north. As I am realizing that the buyer texts me he is 5 minutes away.

    I filled him in and, while I am sure he was irritated, he was nice about it. Turns out he works like 10 minutes from there so we set a meet for later next week after work. I will kick in some ammo to smooth things over but how the heck do you forget the single purpose of the trip?
    I would have understood. I would have laughed my butt off, but I would have understood. Hopefully laughing with you, not at you. Ok, maybe a little bit at you.

    I have no problem with honest mistakes when doing deals. Misrepresentation, or bull**** excuses don't sit well with me, though.

    I pull stunts like this all the time with my lunches and coffee.

    The only way to not forget is to literally put my keys in the fridge with my lunch. I still manage to get distracted and leave them on a counter from time to time.
