The Clown Car is supposed to be "locked-out-proof." When either the passenger or drivers door is locked, and then closed, all the doors are supposed to unlock. Not so yesterday. All the doors did NOT unlock. In fact, when the door slammed all the doors locked WITH MY PURSE, KEYS AND CELL PHONE INSIDE.
Phil was very nice to leave his meeting, drive home, get the spare key, and drive to Springville and save me. He did not even once say the word, "stupid," or "What were you thinking," and didn't even sigh.
The Clown Car, on the other hand refused to lock again without my jumping through hoops. And I heard that muffled laughter again, I'm sure of it.
PS The Reams grocery store in Springville has some interesting stuff. You can really see a lot in 45 minutes. For instance, they have a whole "Preparedness" section with nifty things like tiny portable stoves, a toilet kit you made out of a bucket--I'm not kidding--MRE's, only not the Army issued ones--"Add 2 cups hot water, close pack, wait 7 to 8 minutes and eat right out of the pack. Serves two." Yes, I was there so long I read even the back of packages. I opened the stove package and set it up. The toilet I left alone.
If you are ever bored go to the Springville Reams and get prepared for times of emergency. And if you drive a Clown Car you may need all those supplies. Of course everything will be locked inside and you will be standing outside, probably in a blizzard. But still.
