Losing My Car {or mind?}

Do you ever forget where you parked your car in a crowded parking lot? Ok, sometimes it may not even be that crowded.

I have joked before about getting a huge plastic bouquet of red carnations for my antenna. Sure sign that I have packed my bags and am moving into old lady town.

I seem to lose my car a bit more these days, but really, losing it is not the worst part. The worst part is, my brain immediately goes here:

“Oh great, I wonder how quickly the GMC dealer can get a hold of one of those hybrid Denali's in white?”

Is that bad?

  1. Just do what I do - I hit the panic button on my keychain and follow the noise to my car.

  2. I lose my car all the time. So I try to park in the same general areas at every store I frequent. Even if I get a 'bad' parking place in that certain area, at least I can find my car. Every time I stray from the plan I feel like a doofus b/c I can't find it. Hubs parks where ever...what is it with guys? I always tell him when we're together that if he passes out, we're doomed forever b/c I can't find the car! LOL

  9. Just last week, as I walked around and around the parking lot pushing all the buttons on my remote thinking eventually something would lead me to my car, a man came up to me and asked if I owned the blue van over there with all the doors opening and closing and lights and horn flashing. I denied that I did. But then I had to wait until he left so I could get in that same van and drive home.

  11. Wondering about how quickly you can get a hybrid is not bad. Forgetting where you parked your present car -- not so good. Perhaps you could find a plastic boxer (dog) to put on the antenna!

  12. In Ithaca, everybody including me, has a green Subaru. I go to the grocery store and there are 7 in the lot! Ours is the only one with a piggy on the mirror though...

  14. It's only bad because you apparently think you've lost it permanently!

    This does happen to me too! But only when I have a huge shopping cart full of groceries.

  15. Yep. And I too have used the remote. You are not alone!

  17. Can I come and live in Old Lady Town with you? I think I'd like the company better than Old Man Town.

    I think.

  18. If I can't park in exactly the same spot as I always do, I hover until the owner of the car parked in MY space comes out. Or I go home. Then I never lose my car. Usually. Unless I forget which spot is mine because I shop in too many stores....

  19. I only ever go to one store (seriously. all my shopping is done on line and my husband grocery shops.) and I STILL lose my car!!!!

  20. Me, so many times: "Oh my gosh someone stole my car, CALL THE POLICE!" I shouldn't be allowed to drive. Either that, or only go places that have valet!
