    The tires on my car were a little old so I bought 4 new tires before I made the 2 hour drive from Scottsdale to Tucson. About 80 miles into the middle of nowhere my back tire blows out. Bad luck, but shit happens. I can change a tire. Get to Tucson, decide to get my oil changed. They say it'l be 45 min so I walk over to the store next to it. I come back an hour later and they can't find my only set of keys. I don't get angry, I said I'll be in the waiting area, let me know when you find them. Another hour goes by and they said, "sorry,we must have left them in someone else's car." I call the toyota dealership and they said sorry our parts department closes at 5. Oh and I have class tomorrow and all my stuff is locked in my car.

    They should call a locksmith, pay for it, and do the oil change for free. And give you coupons.


    Also free oral sex.



    Or at the very least, one of them should drive home to get a wire coathanger to unlock your door. Automatic locks?

    I can relate -
    I finally get enough hours to have extra spending money recently and my tire blew out a week ago... it just so happened that my cell phone had been disconnected an hour before the blowout. My custom wheels require a custom lugnut, which I don't have.... I had to be towed to discount tire (I used my phone to call 911, they connected me to AAA), etc etc etc.

    Automatic locks but a locksmith can't make a key unless he has one to copy. The key fob was with the set they lost.

    Locksmiths don't make keys, home depot makes keys.

    Tucson has plenty of 24-hour locksmiths, or at least tow-truck drivers... many towers have a second business as a locksmith. I call them "you're fucked" specialists.

    oh indeed, but his job is looking after car and keys, there would or at least should be procedures in place to how he works on a car, including what you do with the keys, admittedly it could just be a one off... but you should never miss an opportunity to reach over a counter and bitch slap a boob...

    If they thought they left them in someone else's car, they should've contacted the customers who had been there until they found your keys. The responsibility's not on you though you should've had a spare service key.

    Tommorrow go in there. They're probably not going to like doing it, but oh well. They need to be more careful.
