You probably get them from someone that you know… that wonderful forward of that funny kitten picture, or the inspirational sunset scene. Sometimes it's the girl who has been kidnapped from South Carolina, sometimes, California, but in any case she has that nappy 1970's red hair. Remember when KFC used those boneless creatures and they wanted to now use Chicken in their name and those other great things we have coined to be called DUN DUN DUNNNNN… Urban Legends?
Those people for me are my Aunt Cheryl and My Grandma Boots. I get forwards from them. And you want to know what? Since they are the only ones that forward stuff to me… I read them! Yup. Usually, there is a good laugh in there somewhere. Yesterday we got a forward and decided to see if it really worked or if it was just a big load of stinky messy crap. Here is the Forward and I did not use standard Forward Protocol and I edited out all the “>” and “|” and other crap that people leave in there to make the message harder to read.
Email Fw: was as follows:
Locked your keys in your car ???? Did you know this??
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on your (or someone else's) cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person on the phone (at your home) press the unlock button of your key (clicker), holding it near the phone on their end.
Your car doors will unlock.
Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object you could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other “remote” for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk!).
Editor's Note *It works fine! We tried it out, and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!
Mike's Note * I locked the car had my youngest daughter call me while I was far away from the car. I clicked open into the phone and I could hear the car doors unlock through her cell phone. My daughter confirmed that sure enough the doors opened.
Pass this one on to your friends
Jen and I tried it last night… IT WORKED. Well, not 100% of the time, but enough for us to believe in this Fw:. I even popped the trunk while lying in bed… you what this means… practical joke time!!!
