It sounds like a good solution, but unfortunately it's little things like that an employer takes note of. Punctuality, organisational skills, it doesn't matter if you are actually in control of the situation at all. It all adds up. As an employer, I'd look at it as OP being poor at organisation, even the simple task of keeping track of keys. It seems unfair but the job market is so competitive these days, employers are very picky.
Those damn tricksters. Threaten to use a magnet on them if they ever hide from you again.
I'm assuming they're drunk. I look at my text history, and there's no other explanation. "Yur keys so sexy. Tubular gilded yum. Tell her Im the skeleton key that can fit right in n unlock her heart ;) ;)" Note: that was almost too painful to write, both by the grammar and punctuation, and the pure disturbing content.
As an interviewer, I hate it when people are way late and decide not to call. I might have other interviews or paperwork to do. If you call and tell me you are running late, I can tell you want the job. OP, always, always, always call if you even think you might be late.
Always keep your car keys in the same spot or else things like these happen!
Hopefully you still went to the interview, sometimes the interviewer runs late also. If not you could at least explain, who knows sometimes persistence pays off and what looked ugly can turn into a wonderful opportunity.
Always put them somewhere you know you will find them. Like the kitchen counter or something. Sorry OP, next time:)
