Wrong Car


Similar to Alex's post of a day or two ago! How often does this kind of thing happen?

Paul, are you thinking of this post of mine from two and a half years ago?

Time flows more quickly in Paul's World.

I had a car that exact same color but my dog was a chihuahua named Floyd.

No, Alex, I had forgotten that one entirely! I was referring to "wrong stabbing victim."

And, with a resounding TWANG Paul's world snaps back into Newtonian Space/Time.

Expat -- Weird Universe doesn't obey the laws of Newtonian Space/Time. If it did, it would be Normal Universe. Or Classical Mechanics Universe. Or something like that...

Ok.. but can we keep the "TWANG" anyhow?

Sounds more like Aderjan needs a real watchdog instead of the "lick 'em to death" fluff ball he had. 😛

More than a decade ago I was in Pittsburgh at Christmas. There was a story in the paper about a guy who went to a local mall. Came back from shopping and his car was gone. He called the police to report a stolen car. Cop shows up to take the report. Cop asks him if he's sure he didn't just forget where he parked. Guy is certain where he left his car. While he is writing up the report the cop notices the type of car the guy had several rows away. Don't recall the make and model but it was a common car. Cop points to the car and asks the guy if that could be his car. Guy walks over with the cop, says it looks like his car, but as he gets closer he notes the tag number is different. On a hunch the cop asked the guy to try the key. It works. The absent-minded owner of the car had walked over to the wrong car and driven it home. Cop runs the tag, calls the owner and asks her to drive the other driver's car back to the mall. Problem solved.

When I read this item, the first thing I thought about is that 1985 car mix-up in Milwaukee, which I originally read about in 1985, and now saw again at the link. Either that, or my deja vu is acting up again.

Jim: yup, that definitely can happen. I recall a time when my dad and us children were visiting an acquaintance, and another visitor had mislaid or damaged his car keys (or maybe locked them inside). As dad had the same make and type, he jokingly said he'd try his. Imagine everybody's surprise when the car opened without even rattling the lock.
