If you plan on getting underneath the car to look at something why would you want to leave your keys in your pocket? He probably did not leave his car on either. Getting his car stolen was probably the last thing on his mind while he was helping somebody out I'm not saying he should not have taken his keys… I'm just saying he probably didn't think of it
#69 Well then she didn't go very far because with this system the car will only open/start when the key is around the vehicle. She probably would have stopped a few meters away. My guess is the woman was hot, and his brain was only half thinking because of all the blood flooding down to his man parts, so he just forgot to take his keys! (joke inside, I know sometimes people have a hard time making the distinction!)
It all depends where OP was when it happened! When my family goes to the local landfill we don't turn off the vehicle just in case the battery quits or something. If OP was in a shady part of town or on one of those long desert highways where there's no help for miles, I can't blame them for leaving the vehicle on…
26, You must not understand what you are saying. I think you mean "you should have done this, but FYL". People don't deserve to have their cars stolen for not taking their keys with them...Only a complete fuckwit would say something that stupid. It's unfortunate, and you did have the power to stop it, you do NOT deserve it.
126- Yes, I meant exactly what I commented. So calling me a "fuckwit" was unnecessary . With the way people steal cars and everything else these days, basic common sense would be to secure your belongings first. Most thieves rely on the most simplest mistakes or lapse in judgement by victims to carry out their plans such as this example of him leaving his keys in his car.
While it's marginally safer for men to approach strange women, your best bet would have been to pull over, and without getting out of the car, ask them if you need to call someone for them. If you do get out of the car, turn it off, lock it, and pocket your keys. It may sound like paranoia or untrusting, but anyone who is 'scamming' will immediately know you're not an easy target.
On the upside, if she's like many people, she'll have registration and insurance papers in the glovebox, and then she'll be easy to track down/arrest. If she's smart, she won't, but they can still probably run her license plate too. Unless THAT car is stolen. Then he's fucked.
