A Little Sketchy...

So, we just got home from a nice dinner and quickly relieved the sitter. She then came back inside to tell me that she had given BabyBoy her sunglasses to put in her car and asked him to bring the keys inside and lock the car. Apparently, he got the sunglasses in the car and locked it...with the keys still inside.
I assured her that we've all locked the keys inside the car before. Hell, some of us have locked kids inside the car in the summer heat strapped into their carseats with no way of getting out. I'm not naming names...just sayin.
But seriously...expecting a six year old to be able to follow that many commands without screwing it up? While carrying (and trying to play while walking) his Nintendo DS? Nuh uh.
Then the clincher...not only are the keys locked in the car WITH HER PURSE, but her extra set of keys is inside the purse. Natch.
Sooo, I get a coathanger and within five minutes the door is open. She thanks me profusely and then looks at me and says "That's a little sketchy". Nice. So I get the car open, no scratches, we don't have to pay a locksmith...and I'm sketchy?
Whateva.

and she doesn't find the fact that she asked your 6 year old to do her dirty work "sketchy" ?

You never know maybe she meant sketchy in the best way possible! I think it' s fabulous that you just jumped in and cracked the car open!

Ugh. I hope she was kidding. Happy Anniversary!

WTH? I baby-sat all during undergrad and there is no way I would have asked one of the kids to do that. Anyway, I break into my car all the time with a coat hanger. If you see a girl dressed in Lilly wearing huge Chanel sunglasses while breaking into her car with a coat hanger, don't think a thing about it!

I'm thinking she thought of it as a compliment...:)

Less than 5 minutes! I would have called AAA and waited for an hour. You would be my hero, so clever and never sketchy!
