lock'd out

After working 20 consecutive days, arriving home shortly before midnight on saturday and thoroughly exhausted, I honored my hard work and sacrifice by locking my fucking keys in my car.

having the day off on sunday and carpooling on monday, I made no effort to get them back.

last night, however, I spent more time than I would've liked in the cold trying to break into my car with a wire hanger. I'd done it back in summer 2001, but I guess I just can't remember exactly how to do it.

if it was a colder day I could probably get away with asking the cops since they won't let me freeze to death outside the car.

but since its over 40 and its parked at home...


fuckin' google.

yahoo's yellow pages are all kinds of suck.

first place listed don't service my town. huh?
second place listed doesn't answer the phone even though its advertised as "24 Hour"

so then I try a local number instead of a toll free. I got "integrated security solutions" which turns out to be a security for banks, they don't do locks... which is odd since they're listed under "lock smith"

the next number is a towing company. I call him and the guy immediately gives me another number saying that "he can get to you faster than I can"
I call this other number and a woman answers. I explain my situation and she says "what do you want me to do about it?" and then I realize I have the wrong number. But its the exact number the other guy gave me so I decide to just let that screwball go and try the next place.

at this point my fiance charges in with a phone book and announces she'll find a place. first place want $70 because it'll be after hours work. I say I'll think about it.

the next place advertises being the cheapest in the phone book, and only wants $40, but he isn't even sure he knows where my town is, and he's located a good 20 miles away. I give him a break and take his advice and call someone else.

mike's towing is a big business in Madison, and they said they'd do it for $55, but it would be 2 hours. having spent 3 days locked out, I figured 2 hours is no big deal. When I saw the truck pull up i put my coat on to meet the guy but he opened the car before I even got there. I was so excited!

He took my credit card number and gave me a receipt. He did an imprint of my card so he has my exact name but the name he wrote on the paper (I guess from over the phone) was Zac Zimpley.

My visions are getting worse. this morning i heard a song by the cure and i could picture the koala band in my mind.

Sometimes I worry I might be going completely crazy. Like sometimes I close my eyes when I hear country music and I picture a band of koala bears playing the song. one on banjo, one on lap steel, one on drums... even a little guy playin' tamborine on his momma's back as she plays fiddle.
