Funny: What Appears To Be Right May Not Always Be Right
Today my wife and I went to Lowes to purchase insecticides to kill a nest of black widows in our backyard. We decided to take her 2002 Blue Ford Escape and, like normal, parked the car before we went inside to purchase the goods. After paying for our products, we went outside to our SUV to load our stuff and head home. The problem was my car remote was not working. I clicked the unlock, lock and panic button and no response.
Immediately I assumed the battery had died on the remote and Caitlyn proceeded to open the back window of the SUV. Apparently it was not locked, but as soon as she opened the window the car alarm siren went off. Since my remote was not working I went to the drivers side door to unlock the car and deactivate the alarm. The problem was my key was not working. It went in but would not turn at all. Immediately I assumed the alarm triggered some kind of locking mechanism keeping my key from working. It was our car, it should work.
Then it hit me, actually it hit Caitlyn and she said it. This was not our car. She noticed the stickers on the back window were missing. This was not our car! It was the same model, color, year, and make but it wasn't our car. We knew what our car looked like and what type of car it was, but it wasn't until we noticed some of the missing details that we realized what we knew to be true was actually false. We laughed at each other, and looked around to find the actual owner.
