Yesterday i went to the bank and bring my one year old grandson with me. it was already 4:00 pm so i was in a hurry . The bank will close at 5:00 pm. I lock the main door of the house , then the gate. I was very confident that i left the house secured. When i reached the bank i still saw people inside, i got my number, its no. 14. I'm glad the no. in the counter is no. 5.I didn't took long inside and after getting my money I and my baby grandson dine in fast food chain. After dining i went shop for my personal care products, hair dye, lipstick and eyebrows. Then before going home we passed by a flea market and just go for window shopping, then we went home. As soon as we arrived home i look for the key inside my bag but i couldn't find it. I was thinking of destroying the back door so we could enter. I went to my neighbor's house to borrow a knife and ask to look after my grandson. My neighbor said that her niece, a seven years old girl saw the key at the gate of my house.It was almost dark when we arrived home so i didn't noticed that the key was still there left inserted at the padlock of the gate. Oh my gosh! how stupid i am, thought i left the house secured but i left the key inserted at the padlock of the gate . Good thing that our house was located a little bit inside a small alley and no one will noticed that the key was attached in the padlock. I really thought that i brought the key because i was carrying the small wallet where the key is kept .My mind was really disoriented because of too much in a hurry, Thanks God, He didn't allow bad things happen while i was away. I praise God, He is under control.

hahahahaha! You are not alone, my friend! My wife is worse! She did not forget the keys. She did not forget to turn off the faucet. She one time forgot to put on her dentures one Sunday and we were already seated in the church.

Those things happen to everybody, a moment of distraction and you forget your keys.

Oh, how I can understand you. Such stupid things happen to me all the time. My keys and I have a difficult relationship. If you trust your neighbour, you should leave an extra key at their house.

yes sometime i leave the key to my neighbor but, sometimes also i don't want to bother them by taking care of my key, they might also go out and it's a burden for them

Good thing, the key was not seen by a thief. Anyway, that same kind of forgetfulness happened to me once, also to my husband. The key was left inserted in the main door of the house but we have a gate which is always closed and good thing our dogs kept our house secure from any intruders so no one could even come near our gate

Oh boy, I can imagine your frustration. I have lost my keys many times, mostly at home as I forget where I left them or they are hidden behind an object and I can't see them in sight. Fortunately, after I go crazy looking for them, at the end of the day they always turn up in plain view. Thank goodness you were safe and located your keys.
