Default Did you forget where you parked?

Just curious if you have ever forgotten where you parked your car in a large parking lot such as a shopping mall, airport, amusement park, etc.

Or, have you ever mistaken someone else’s car for yours?

Just last night. The boyfriend and I went to the grocery store, came back out into the parking lot, turned right toward his car, wasn't his car, stood there like doofuses, finally found his car in the other direction.

I've done that before too....felt like a total idiot! It was much more amusing when I saw someone else do it last weekend. LOL

Never more then a row or so.

Years ago my aunt and cousin were at the mall though, left and got into their van. Were ready to leave when my cousin points out a cell phone in the dash that isn't theirs. They then notice that there are a lot of things that aren't theirs! Turns out Dodge Caravan keys will open and start just about any Dodge Caravan

I don't forget where I park because I specifically park in the back so I won't. It's an old habit from when I used to work at the car dealership.

Funny story, we now drive a recently an old police car. He went to the gas station one day to grab some stuff. When he got out, he got into the car. He opened up his soda, started eating his candy bar. After a bit, he tried to start it to no avail. That's when he noticed the rifle, and the laptop. And when he looked up and saw the cops standing right there, laughing their butts off at him. When he got out they said they were wondering how long it was going to take him to figure it out.

Other than at work, yes, I forget all the time. Fortunately, my daughter always remembers.

I have done both.

And one time I worked at a place where we parked in a large parking garage, and one guy stole another guy's keys and moved it to a different level. I have to admit, it was the funniest April Fools joke I have ever seen.

I almost put my toddler into the wrong car on Monday. I thought someone had stolen his car seat until my other son told me it was the wrong car.

I stopped to get coffee once on my way to work in kind of a rough neighborhood and when I was walking out through the parking lot my phone rang. So I dug my phone out and was chatting away and I was trying to unlock my car - my car unlocks by touching the handle as long as you have the key on you somewhere (pocket/bag). So I'm just standing there, holding the handle of my car and being like wtf, why is the door not unlocking, when I look inside and think 'huh, I don't have a Gatorade in my cupholder' and realize, I am hanging onto the handle of someone else's car that is identical to mine but parked three spaces away. Someone else who is walking up behind me watching me potentially try to break into his car. Luckily he had a sense of humor but I was mortified.

Yes, but only for a moment. I quickly realized where I was parked. I watch people do it a bit too frequently at Disney.

I had the same car as someone else at my last job.

I met her in person for the first time when we were walking out to our cars at the same time one day, and we actually unlocked them at pretty much the same time, to the point where she started to get into mine.

I swear, if the Minneapolis airport didn't have little tags to take that tell you what floor of the garage you're parked on, I'd lose my car every time I went out of town.

I have a pretty distinctive car, so I don't often lose my car. I do, however, forget where I park all the time at work. I know the general area, but can't remember exactly. Thank goodness it has a remote and will beep at me if I hit the unlock button while getting madder and madder. Usually the nights I work late.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Off topic - I was thinking about you today Trenell. There was an article in our paper about a bunch of kids from the local schools who go to Disney every year and take classes and then put on a show.

I did today at work. I got halfway across the parking garage to my usual spot before I remembered that I'd parked one level up.

At the doctor's office last week, I tried to get into the wrong car. I put the key in the lock and turned, and thought to myself, "why the hell is it not opening??" before realizing it was someone else's car.

Yes. Eventually I found it. At the impound lot.

I've done similar, only the person actually thought I was trying to steal his car. I now have a unique decoration hanging from my rear-view mirror, so it'll never happen again.

I try hard to remember to make a deliberate mental note of where I park at the mall. Macys, door by cosmetics, Row C, spot 15. I've still gone out the wrong door. Then there was the time I stepped out of CVS, walked toward my car, while chatting with my daughters. As I stood talking, I was pressing the unlock button on the key fob, but nothing happened. The real owner came behind us and kindly said, "I think this one is mine, is yours the one over there?" It was right across the aisle from this other car. Embarrassed, I laughed and replied: "Well, if the lock not opening wasn't a good enough hint, you'd think I might have recognized that my car is never this clean!"

If I'm parking in a big lot, I make a note either with my phone or on paper with clues to where I left my car!

If it's airport parking or a huge structure in general, I usually take a photo of the sign on my level or make a note in my Blackberry.

I try to make a mental note whenever I park. But I inevitably forget on a regular basis.
