Chuckle of the Day – The Stolen Car

by Sherry Riter in Chuckle


Several days ago as I left a meeting at our church, I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down.

I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets. A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.

Suddenly I realized, I must have left them in the car. Frantically I headed for the parking lot. My wife, Diane, has 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.

As I burst through the doors of the church, I came to a terrifying conclusion. Her theory was right. The parking lot was empty.

I immediately call the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.

Then I made the most difficult call of all, “Honey,” I stammered. I always call her “honey” in times like these. “I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen.”

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard Diane’s voice, “Ken,” she barked, “I dropped you off!”

Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and get me.”

Diane retorted, “I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car!”

LMBO! lately, that sounds like something I would do! Day before yesterday, I had a house to clean, so I got up, got dressed and starting checking to make sure I had everything I was going to need. I always carry my vacuum cleaner and my cleaning caddy in my car, so I don't have to load and unload all the time. I looked in my car and NO VACUUM! I thought I probably took it into the house. I went and searched my house, my store room, our shed and NO VACUUM! I thought I was going crazy. I was then running late, so decided to leave and use the client's vacuum. I reached for my keys and NO KEYS! Getting frantic I started searching the house. After no luck finding them,I decided to PRAY and ask God to show me where they were. I looked beside the front door and there my keys were hanging on our key hanger where my hubby had told me to place them before going on our cruise! Walking out to my car Partially relieved, I then remembered I had left my vacuum over at the client's house whom I was fixing to go clean, to be repaired BEFORE going on my cruise! NO ONE can convince me that GOD doesn't answer prayers! LOL! The whole time I was frantically searching, I honestly was scared that I was starting to go crazy. If I had prayed FIRST, I would have been ok.

Anyway, I can certainly relate to that Guy! LOL!

Love PJ
