BIKES!

Today, I lost the key to my bike lock. I ended up having to cut it off, even though it was brand new. After spending 30 minutes hacking away at it, it finally came off. When I hopped onto my bike, I felt something poking my leg. My key was in my pocket the whole time. FML

YDI. Why was that not the first place you looked?

YDI. I agree with #1, that seems like a really obvious place to look before getting a saw and destroying the lock

Well sometimes (guy pants) they get covered by the fabric of the pants so you don't feel it. Since that was badly explained let me try again. Guys pants are baggy. The bagginess cause the fabric to fold on top of each other and doing so covering small objects like said key.

13--Then turn out said pockets before you spend half an hour cutting through metal.

#13, I've experienced that when wearing my Navy camouflage uniform. I always make sure to check my pockets thoroughly and make sure the fabric isn't all twisted up around the thing I'm looking for, before I assume I've lost something. It would be extremely inconvenient and embarrassing to report that I've lost a tool or helicopter part when I had it in my pocket the whole time. You'd think OP would likewise check his pockets more thoroughly before wasting a lot of time, energy, and money destroying a brand new bike lock.

Have you never had that situation where you're looking for the TV remote and it was in your hand the whole time? or when you lose your glasses and find them for propped on the top of your head?

You should keep track of things that are important like keys, although that sucks, you still deserved it for not knowing where you put it

YDI for not checking the most obvious place first.

Like everyone else is saying, check your pockets first. YDI, even though it sucks.

That's basically me and my beloved phone.

You sawed your phone in half?

How little time did you spend looking if it was literally on you the whole time. YDI

How many others have checked the same place 2-3 times, checked everywhere else and then eventually found the item in the original place checked after giving up hope? Just me?

You still got to know how to do such a thing
