Today, I finished my shopping at Costco, and realized I had forgotten where I had parked. After scouring the parking lot for 20 minutes, I called the police and filed a report for a stolen vehicle. I then remembered I had bought a new car yesterday and parked it right next to the entrance. FML

Uh, how does any part of this FML relate to tax dollars? Waste of time.. Absolutely. Waste of ice cream... Possibly. But to call the police to file a report just may be what the police are there for? Either way, panic button before actually panicking is always a plus.

62-- Police are there for EMERGENCIES and for preventing or solving ACTUAL crime, not imagined crime by persons that don't have a good excuse to be that stupid. Trust me, there's better things they could have been doing.

Do Americans have a police number that isn't for emergencies? In Australia we have a number we can call for minor things like disruptive parties etc. It's good cause then people aren't clogging up the emergency line for small things and police can then prioritize the jobs.

75: To the op, this is a serious crime, he/she thought that their car was stolen, which is obviously a serious crime, although it eventually turned out to be nothing at all because the op realized they bought a new car. It was a simple mistake.

Even if your car is stolen, unless you're watching it get stolen it is not 'an in progress emergency'. 911 is meant for protection of life, limb and property within the scope of an in progress emergency. Don't call 911 because you lost your car in a big parking lot or forgot where you parked your car when you were drunk. Look around some more and think a little.

In your lifetime, you'll have a few (hopefully). I'm on my 5th new car and when I first got it, I feared parking next to people that might scratch it. My efforts were in vain. It's got a bunch now!): damn compact parking BS!

6, I only park next too expensive vehicles, such as a Saab, Mercedes and the occasional Audi... I figure they probably don't want their car damaged either. But then again, I just got my first car May 1st. >_> still protective.

I've walked right past my car that I've had for three years. After searching for a few minutes and wandering further into the lot I used my remote. I found it in less than thirty seconds.

It's an extra fee for electric locks on some models. Mine is a 2014 spark & it doesn't have a remote. My sister has a 2013 sonic & it has manual crank windows. It all depends on the car.
