what does it say?
How was he able to drive someone else's car with his keys?
Seems simple to me apple! This switcheroo took place in the 15 min parking zone, so I'd guess both cars were left running. They were probably both gold mini-vans with at least two out of three car seats full, a dent on the left front bumper, 2 dents on the passnger side door, a little tefillas haderech in the shape of a car made out of construction paper hanging from the rearview mirror... I can see how it would easy to get confused.
Mordy - Not a van, Chevy Impala. They must still be more recently married.Frayda - "I left my car yesterday in the 15 min parking zone. I accidentally took home a similar car. It was a gray Chevy Impala." (Also has phone numbers, etc.)
My friend drove off someone else's car. It looked like the van she borrowed, it was parked at a slant in front of the store... she turned the key, but it wouldn't go. She tried again. And again. Called Chaverim. They thought it was something with the engine. Annoyed, she turned the key violently one more time, and the engine started. She drove the van back to its owner who said, "Um, where's my van?"So you *can* run off with someone else's car.
Any of you been to lakewood recently? Chevy Impala is to lakewood as navy blue pleated skirt is to Bais Yaakovs.Hell, I somtimes try to get into other peoples Impalas and I don't even own one.
Hey Jerk (btw, great name to pick) - Hehe. I actually wonder why there are so many - do people get cars from the same place, and does that place (wisely) buy lots of old cop cars in auction? Hmm...
Cheap cheap cheap but being sooo soo smart we know that we want a GOOD car that's cheap. The best bang for your buck if you may and the chevy impala has proved to have the right balance.(Not good enough for me or I'd be driving one too....) Though I never did see a new one. Do they even make them new?
Jerk - Do they even make them new?LOL. Only with blue and white trim...
Here's the deal:They have this strip of road in Lakewood that's really a fire lane, but people park along the side anyway. There is some kind of unspoken agreement there that you leave your keys in the car and when a fire truck comes along (which is rare) anyone who is around quickly moves your car to let the truck pass. At least that's the story I heard.So that solves the "How do you drive a car without keys?" problem.As for taking the wrong car, how hard could it be?! With all the dents looking identical, it aint the hardest deal. Especially when your head is still swimming with heilige Torah thoughts from the morning seder...
I hope it's not an actual fire lane...!

My husband borrowed my mother's dodge caravan to run some errands. when he got back to the parking lot, he used the key to get into an identical minivan. the clue that made his realize was the cross hanging from the rearview mirror.
Besides for the fire lane parking, the way that cars park in BMG's parking lot is by blocking other cars and then leaving their keys in the car so it can be moved by someone else, if necessary. If you don't want a dent in your car or to avoid finding pieces missing, best to find parking somewhere else.
told by a BMG bochur that it happens very often there. i have the larger JPG if anyone wanted to read it?
Where's the larger image?
