I lost my house keys this evening, almost certainly while trying to help catch a loose dog in the local park. The dog is unharmed and reunited with his owners, who live nearby, but there was some terrifying running into a busy road first, and a bunch of talking to people after (including a long-overdue catchup with my neighbour).

Between that and my subsequent pacing around the park failing to find my keys, I am 50% over my target step count and extremely grumpy with tiredness.

I thought I'd lost my car keys earlier. Got back to the car, unlocked it, put keys back in bag, put the chair in the boot, tossed the bag onto the passenger seat, reached into the bag for the keys, no keys.

Empty the bag, no keys.
Check around and under the seat, no keys.
Check around the car, no keys.
Check under the car, no keys.
Take the chair out of the boot, no keys.
But as I put the chair back into the boot, I catch a tiny glimpse of metallic green - the karabiner I use as a keyring. Open the passenger door and there they are down the side of the seat, resting on the seat rail. They must have flown out of the bag, bounced off the door, and wormed themselves into the one place you can't see looking from above, or in front.

Moral of the story, it's not just the last place you look, but the last place you think to look.

Glad you found them! Hunting for them like that sounds tedious-yet-terrifying.

Doubly so as I've previously lost a car key while parked in almost the same spot!

I am so sorry about your keys. I hope they come back to you.

You get major kudos for crisis-handling with serious social and physical exertion.

Still - well done. And good that someone knew who to call!

Ugh. My sympathies.

Things do sometimes turn up, but they can take their time about it, that's for sure!

Oh no! No good dead, and all that. I hope your keys turn up soon. I once spent a whole night looking for some that turned out to be inside the lining of my coat. It's the weirdest places.
