stadams1024 tells us more.
I am the OP. Let me explain the situation more in depth since I only had 300 characters to do so before. My husband had lost his car keys, so I gave him my set and I took the spare lock key and the spare ignition key. I needed to get some groceries and he was at work, so I just went. Before I got out of the car to go inside, I put the keys in my sweatshirt pocket and got out. I got my groceries and came back out to the car, and yes it was in the same spot. I reached in my pocket to pull out my keys and only the lock key was there. I unlocked the car and immediately searched both the front seats, under the seats, in the cracks between the seats and even the back seat. I looked under the car and in the ignition too. I retraced my steps in the store three times and then checked my car again. I asked the service desk if anyone turned in a loose key, but no one had. I called my husband but he couldn't leave to pick me up, so I walked 4 miles home. The walk itself wouldn't have been so horrible had I not broken my foot a few months ago; it still bothers me, and there weren't any sidewalks half the way, so I kept twisting my ankle in holes in the ground. After my husband came home from work, he took me back to the store with his keys and I drove home. It wasn't until a week or so later that I actually found the key in the passenger seat, close to where the back of the cushion and the seat of the cushion met. There is no way I could have missed it when I searched for it and I had driven it a handful of times between the incident and when I found it. It literally appeared out of thin air and it still baffles me.

In my opinion that is a win win situation, good workout and you also found your keys.
That really ******* sucks. But please next time don't leave your keys in plain sight. You will end up with your car stolen. (i know from experience)
Could have been worse, I dropped my keys in the golf course somewhere, and I had to walk the entire 7000 yard course again to find them, and yes the keys were in my bag, but I didn't realize there was a hole in it.
This is why keyless ignitions are great. If the key is anywhere in the car, it starts. Not that this helps you in any way.
No keyless ignitions are not always great.. My mom has one and one time she went to the store and got to messing with all her grocery lists and coupons and her car is so quiet she forgot is was on and she got out and left the car running and unlocked the whole time she was in the store.. Someone could have easily hopped in and drove off.. So I will stick w the regular old fashioned keys
64: I think she was implying that since her mom left the "key" (the remote signals to the computer system that the rightful owner is in the vehicle) in the car, anyone could've gotten in and driven off. Though its "keyless" you still have to have the remote inside the vehicle to start the engine fully.
