My mom locked me in the car when I was a toddler and had to motion for me unbuckle my car seat and there was a blizzard outside with the car off! I was freezing! BTW I was three, and it's not that hard to get out of a car seat.

And thats when you break the window with your elbow or a rock! YDI for NOT ONLY LOCKING YOUR KEYS IN THE CAR BUT YOU LOCKED YOUR KIDS IN THE CAR AND WAITED UNTIL AAA CAME THATS CHILD ABUSE you should get creative when that happens they couldve suffocated assuming YDI left the windows rolled up bcuz you obviously lost your mind

#122, stfu. You obviously don't understand what constitutes abuse. It isn't abuse to lock your kids in the car BY ACCIDENT. Yes, it was a stupid mistake, but a mistake nonetheless. EVERYONE ON EARTH makes mistakes now and then. Yeah, this was a big one, but that doesn't make it abuse. Also, don't blow this out of proprtion. It would have taken HOURS on end for those kids to suffocate. Lord, how people can make things bigger than they are...

@#122 There is no way they'd suffocate in the car, it's not airtight. If left in the sun the car could heat up, and the children might dehydrate. AAA would be there long before that's could become a problem. If it's cold out - well smashing the window would be somewhat counterproductive.

Most seats are child proofed. It's hard as hell for me to get my daughter out of her seat. But to the OP, you are an idiot. Pay more fucking attention. Never close the doors until you have your kids out.

once I drive over 5 mph my doors lock. But, after locking myself out once, I now keep a keep taped inside my gas tank that will open the door.

perhaps the OP got out of the car, closed his/her door, and went to open the back doors to get the kid when he/she realized it was locked. the cellphone could also already be in the person's pocket and therefore they didn't need to remember to get it. people judge way too quickly..

42- First of all, this contributor was stressing that having a phone was critical in such a situation; the contributor obviously knew that OP had a phone. Secondly, arrogant and noncomprehensive bitches don't belong in FML comment sections... Consider changing your screen name, to whomever the user of "TheGenius" may be. =/

Actually, this happens all the time. Some cars will lock the doors automatically under certain circumstances. The police are use to getting calls to unlock cars w/ kids inside.

Docscientist> And? Just because it was an accident doesn't make it ok. It's still irresponsible behavior. I can kill someone in a car accident but it's just an accident!!!

You can accidentally lock yourself out when going from your door to theirs or vice versa. Unless you take your kids out the driver's door with you.

In Texas it was 89 today, and if you break the drivers window or the front passenger window, it's unlikely that the kids will be "impaled". Especially since most cars come with safety glass that doesn't leave big shards, just sorta crumbles. I wouldn't hesitate a second to bust out a window.

I think there are windows now that when slightly hit will shatter but in a stack of pancakes position equalling a small possibility of harm outcome my cousin has these. OP this is why you should have a spare key in your pocket at all times.

By the way, 33, if you have shoes, keys, a shirt to wrap around your elbow, a big rock laying on the ground... Improvise. It's your kids, I'd smash off a side view mirror and throw it through the window if I had to.

windows are made really hard today, the amount of force you need to break a window with your elbow should leave the window cracked and your elbow broken...

Not the driver/passenger window. those are engineered for this purpose so that in an emergency you can break them fairly easily and without splintering glass everywhere.

118. please stop. windows are not meant to shatter in case you lock your kids in the car. well, at least not here in America. I can't speak for the rest of the world.

Auto glass is made to shatter into little tiny pieces so it wont harm people in the car as bad. so shards wouldnt hit the kids... but the little pieces might... and it is rather hard to break with your bare hands/ elbow... i kno i cant do it ( ive tried) and as for the big rock idea i dont kno about where youre from but around here most parking lots dont have those just lying around ... unless theyre in someones yard that would be a possibility i guess... so yea its not like its gonna take hours for AAA to get there and im sure the hotter it is wherever this took place the faster they would respond

I'm sorry, but what's the point of that? They're toddlers. AAA is typically a fast company, they aren't going to suffocate or dehydrate in the amount of time AAA will need to get there. Why end up spending an extra $200 and risk injuring your children when you can call someone to do their job. I'm just sayin' :)

Trust me, I work on cars for a living. It comes straight from the factory like that so if you flip your car or something, you're not trapped in your car. And realistically, if my kids weren't in immediate danger, I would wait too. I'm just saying that I'd do it if I had to.

I have broken my window out before with my elbow, it hurt like hell, but I got my keys out. And I live out in the boonies of Texas, so there are quite often rocks/pieces of broken road laying around.

186, it's "injure", not "damage". They're not some fancy object, they're human beings. Aditionally. if you had read either the previous comments, or had taken the time to learn what you were talking about, you would know you are completely wrong. Automobile glass is safety glass. It is manufactured to be less likely to cause wounds. This is not because they expect you to lock kids in a car, but rather, as a safety precaution if a wreck occurs, or someone drives into water. There are many scenarios which call for the breaking of glass. and car manufacturers take these precautions. If you're going to comment, don't be completely ignorant.
