missing keys yesterday, missing keys today

i couldn't find the keys to unlock the back gates yesterday. turns out someone left it in their pocket. but i had to search their room and the bathroom to find the shorts they had it in. today we couldn't open the sliding gate to the sliding glass doors. but this was just a small padlock so i wondered if i could use a paper clip. i couldn't find one, but saw an old rusting pair of metal folding scissors with pointed blades. inserting and twisting the left blade didn't work, and i briefly wondered if we have a bolt cutter. good thing the right blade unlocked it! as i opened the gate, screen, then glass, i saw the key in the space between the gate and screen. i'm glad the keychain is much, much bigger than the key, so i noticed it immediately. now i know where else to check if the key is missing again. what do you do when you can't find the keys? have you ever found a missing item in an unlikely place?

We've lost keys a couple of times. The last was a few months ago. We couldn't find the key for the main gate so we just decided to change the lock, buy a new one. So we bought a new padlock only to find a week after that the keys were in the couch sofa compressed in the crevices.
In our home, my hubby misplace his bike's key mostly. One day he was furious and he could not find the key anywhere at house. Finally he took the spare key and on reaching the parking place some one given his key as he left the key in bike itself.

Missing keys can be a pain, especially when you find yourself not able to get in or out of places you are trying to get into. My husband cut up his hand good one time because he had locked the keys in the house, and tried climbing thru an open window and ended up shattering the glass in the window in the process.
