My son thought he'd be cute and lock the car doors from the inside while I was pumping gas. Which would have been OK but I had set the keys on the dash. I was hysterical, I mean, it was July, and hot as hell. By the time the cops got there and let him out I was sure he was going to die from heat exposure. (He didn't, but I know how you feel.)

They weren't locked in a bar, they were locked out of the house because the bar on the sliding glass door fell into a locking position. So having spare keys inside wouldn't really help, would it? And do you take your house key with you every time you step out on your patio? Give me a break, and next time read the post before you comment on it.

#82: you're so daft, did you not read that they had a baby monitor to watch their babies, just in case they needed help. taking care of a baby, let alone twins, is difficult and finding time to relax is hard. and just because your parents or you get tipsy after a beer or two doesn't mean they do. -_-"

There's no crime in the area where I'm from (Dennis, MA). I lived there for 15 years and only ever had one thing stolen that was left unattended on a beach. And a five lb bag of potatoes once.... whoever broke in and took those didn't take anything else. It was weird as hell. Of course, if you looked it up now you'd find out that a guy was shot a few days ago. The ONLY time I've ever heard of any sort of gun violence in the area in all my time there, and the guy was fine, and the shooter has bee

It is in a sense because of the sense of panic a new mother must have at the idea of locking in their child. It's kind of like that "Modern Family" episode. Where the gay couple locks their baby into their car. They freak out, they call themselves bad parents, the big comical one is shown in one shot with a garbage can ready to break the window, while the calm, rational one calls onstar and has the car opened. So even though there was a quick, easy, simple way to relieve the situation

Is alwaysalady's name meant to read "Always A Lady", or "Al, way salady"? I've got this vision of a salad like woman named Alison or something trying to get into a locked car with her salad fingers.
