Senior adult moment not unfamiliar

A friend was kind to send an account of an event that happened to senior adults. Rushing out of a committee meeting at his church, he searched for his car keys. They were not in his pockets: coat or trousers. He realized he must have left them in the car, even though his wife had frequently warned him that leaving them in the ignition was making it too convenient for a thief. He knew she was right. There is always a possibility your car could be stolen. And with this in mind, he reached the parking lot and came to a terrifying conclusion.
It was so alarming to him, it felt like a kick in the stomach: The parking lot was empty! His car had been stolen! He immediately called the police, gave them his location, all the information on his car and asked them to send out a message to all police to be on the lookout for his stolen car. The most difficult thing for him to do was to call his wife and sheepishly say: "Honey, you were right. I must have left my keys in the car and it has been stolen!" There was a period of silence that, in itself, is agonizing for a husband waiting for his wife to say what he thinks he knows she will say as she scolds him. Instead, he was shocked. Her voice, with a tone of indignation, came through loud and clear: "Don't you remember? I dropped you off at the church for your committee meeting!" Now it was his time to be silent. Humiliated, he finally manages to say, "Well, please come and get me." She replied, "I will come and get you as soon as I convince this policeman standing here that I have not stolen your car!"
