Where Did You Find Your Keys?

My first year away from home at college, I lost my keys. I was in my room, and I knew they were in there somewhere, but I just couldn't find them.

The dorms at U.C. Santa Barbara had some ugly fine for losing your keys, like $80, so I looked a very, very long time, and eventually I found them: Hanging from the ceiling.

Wha?? I know, I know. I had been absentmindedly jamming my key in between two ceiling tiles, got them to stick, and took a nap. When I woke up, I had no recollection of the key-jamming exercise. It was such an odd place to leave them, hidden from a normal visual scan of the room.

 

 

 

I took note and made a personal rule, "Don't ever leave your keys somewhere strange". This rule has served me well. Mostly.

As a resource for people who might lose their keys and go looking for them on the internet, I'd like to create a list of places where readers have actually found their lost keys.

Thank you.

It was my bike key. Normally I keep secondary keys like this in a bowl on my dresser, but I guess I dumped it out into this bag at some point, perhaps while I was packing and didn't want a bunch of keys rattling around loose.

Real men keep their keys in their pocket. When they remove them it means they are going to bed. When pants go on in the morning, keys go back in. Anyone who differs from this plan has man problems.

It's pretty hard to get into your car without the key. It had actually fallen off my keyring while I was walking somewhere, it was a miracle we found it. (Dark parking lot!) Always keep your keys on those keyrings that you can barely pry apart in the first place.

I thought they were lost and gone forever, and got another copy made of my house key. My parents later discovered that I had had a wild party at their house while they were away, and made me give them back my house key. A few days later, I found the keys I had originally thought I'd lost, and had more parties (but we were more careful about cleaning up after ourselves that time.)

Location: I have found my door keys sticking out my door once before. Last saturday I left my car key hanging out my car from 8 hours outside my house while I played cricket. I once hid a babysitter's car keys in a plant pot, forgot about them and went to bed. She had to get a lift home and only when asked the next day did I remember hiding them. I'm not the best with keys.

Location: Sticking out of the trunk lock of my car    

...For 4 hours, on a busy street in downtown Salt Lake City, UT. Someone actually gave them to an employee at a store, and put a note on my windshield. And my car wasn't a P.O.S. car, either.

Location: In the door (duh!) and someone took them!    

I was working as a janitor at a student dorm in the summer. I left the keys in the door while I snuck into an unoccupied room to have a nap. The keys disappeared and someone gave them to the front desk. BUSTED! However, if they didn't find them it was going to cost $20,000 to re-key the whole dorm.

Went to see a movie and couldn't find my keys when I went out to the parking lot. Went back and scanned every row of the theater, checked w/ the employees to see if they were turned in. Went back outside and couldn't find my car! Called a friend to pick me up, walked around to kill time and found my car parked farther than I remembered and my keys sitting in the lock of the car door.

Location: In the Bathroom    

When you get home and you really have to pee, everything sort of becomes a blur- and if you're like me, you totally drop everything (groceries, keys, books, bags, whatever) by the bathroom door/in the bathroom to retrieve post-peeing. The keys often end up by the sink- but once you can't find those keys, you never think to check the bathroom. Weird.

I came home with the keys in my hand, went straight to the fridge, put the keys in to get a bottle and left them there. Took me quite a bit to find them the next time I was leaving the apartment. I've also left my cell phone and the remote control there so often that it's now one of the first places I look when I misplace something:)

Keys to the family cottage - must have thrown them in my pocket when leaving the cottage last time. Went on a frantic search to find them the next time we were going to the cottage which was utterly fruitless. After cleaning our house thoroughly 2 weeks later, I picked up the denim skirt to fold it and put it away and lo and behold, there were the keys.

Location: under a couch cushion    

The couch is right inside the front door and, like the person who left them in the bathroom, it was a urinary emergency. I threw them on the couch and didn't think about it until a few hours later when I went to leave again... I also found a pen, some popcorn kernels, and 12 cents.

After a bit of friendly wrasslin' with my then-girlfriend, my keys apparently slid off the comforter and snugly and invisibly wedged themselves there. Next morning, after 25 minutes of late-for-work panic, I found them after having a lightbulb moment: they weren't on/under/behind/around the bed, so the bedframe was the only remaining answer. I felt like a late-for-work Sherlock Holmes.

I rarely lose my keys because, if I'm wearing pants, my keys are in them. However, I have left them in the door a shocking number of times. I agree with Montenegro that guy's who don't have their keys on them when they have pockets are strange. It is fun to prank them by closing their door when they step out of their office, though.

I will take my keys out of the ignition, take off my sunglasses, and swap them for my regular glasses (in the case in the car). Doing this will mean that I will often lay my keys down to have that hand free. This used to be a problem, until I got a car which locks only with the fob on the key. Now I can't lock myself out of the car!

I was on a patrol in the border region near Pakistan and lost my keys. I looked everywhere, but couldn't find them and went back to the states without them. Four months later, a buddy of mine in another unit passed through the same area and found them in the tall grass just outside our old campsite when he went to take a leak. He recognized my fob and mailed them back to me. Crazy.

I left my keys at the inlaws 3 hours away and had to have them overnighted. Husband didn't have the spare to start the car. 2 days after I got them in the mail, I used them to unlock the garage and put them on top of my car so they would not get lost. I forgot and thought they were locked in the garage and wasn't able to drive for 2 more days, until I found them on top of the car.

The keys had been gone for days, including the mail key, where bills were piling up. Pretty serious. It took my breath away when I found them there. Really weird.

Location: Inside a plastic easter egg.    

My wife and I had been missing one of our garage door opener remotes for nearly a year. One night, I heard the garage door opener starting and stopping suddenly. I found our 5 year old playing with the remote. It had been inside a plastic easter egg, where she (or her sister) had put it months earlier.

Location: In the storage room on top of the Christmas decorations    

I locked myself inside--my deadbolt requires key on both sides. Searched frantically, knowing the keys had to be inside because the door was locked. Gave up, got my spare set & went to work. When I got back I tore the house apart. Found them in the storage room on top of the Christmas decorations where I set them when I changed the furnace filter. I had checked on top of the furnace 1st!

Location: A shoe in the hall closet.    

I had put my keys on a little table in the front hallway and they must have fallen onto the floor which must have been littered with shoes. Then somebody tidied up. It was a few days before I went to put that particular pair of shoes on and found my keys.

Location: Under the car.    

I went to open the car and realized I had no keys, I looked through everything on my person to no luck. Then I noticed the keys had been under the driver's side door for a few hours. Luckily nobody had noticed.

Location: At the bottom of the swimming pool    

Apparently a preventative measure to keep me from killing myself or others on the road after getting hammered. Thanks man!

Location: Bottom of the river    

Was fishing one summer and it was about 100 degrees F, and I decided to dive off the front of the boat to cool off. Took my phone out of my pocket and jumped in. Swam a little then climbed back in the boat. Saw my wallet floating beside the boat and grabbed it and then checked for my keys. The next 2 hours were spent diving to the bottom till my buddy found them.

Sorry but I never lose my keys. Never have, not even once. I think it's a neurosis.

Foretunately I had only gone around the block to test a fix to the street motorcycle. All metal keys too so no melting...

Location: Disneyland    

They fell out of my pocket while riding Space Mountain. The awesome "cast members" there turned them in to lost and found, and I retrieved them at the end of the day. Whew!

Location: I quit keys    

I actually made it a point to quit all forms of keys. I don't lock my house. My car doesn't require a key to start and I have a HID card to get into my office. I'm actually very pleased with the result. I thoroughly enjoy your site and hijinks.

Location: Stuck in the rear weather stripping of a friend's car!    

I set my keys on the roof of a friend's car after work one night. She left before I did. I didn't remember putting them there. The next day as she drove up I saw them stuck in the weather stripping of her back window. They slid off of the roof and stuck there for a 60 mile round trip journey!

P.S. I live in North Carolina.

Location: Sacramento - a side street off Watt north of Fair Oaks    

While parking my car I found a key ring with dozens of keys-- like some janitor had lost it. I contacted some likely places nearby but no luck. I contact the police but then I'd have to drive downtown. No way. I accidentally left it with a girl I dated (not my problem any more). I hope they weren't Rob's keys.

Location: Embedded in an ice cube    

My husband lost his keys, which he NEVER does. About a week and a half later later, the refrigerator dispensed an ice cube with part of the keys sticking out of it. We never did figure out how it got there.

I have no idea how I left them there, but one evening I found my keys under the windchimes in the back yard.

Location: my roommate's purse    

I had a wallet with a keyring on it, so when I lost one I lost the other. Upended my whole damn dorm room, furniture lifting and all. Exhausted, I spied her purse and figured it was worth a look. I guess she grabbed a handful of stuff and tossed it in her purse without looking? Ergo: not my fault, I AM BLAMELESS IN THE KEY LOSING DEPARTMENT.
