    Default One of those days. Help needed please

    Ever had one of those days? not much seems to go right?

    Well I am having one right now and it has just ( hopefully) culminated in me locking myself out of my car at work!

    I will set the scene I have a huge bunch of keys, after getting fed up with them a few weeks back I decided to split my house key and my car key ( essentials) from the rest.

    Great until get out of my car today, catch the button, knob latch what ever you want to call it of the lock on my door with my work keys in hand.....and can you guess where my car keys are?

    yep in the ignition.

    So the locks not fully down is there anything I can do other than go get my spare key from home? somehow.

    If you have some palet strapping you might be able to get in. but not sure if the door rubber on the vec will get in the way...

    Anyone at homw, you could try that mythbusters thing where you ring them next to car, and they press the button over the phone...
