I keep mine on a set of hooks near the door (the inside side of the door; would be pretty foolish to leave them outside).
All the time lol .
Well, I haven’t done that yet … maybe there’s still some hope for me!
I normally find my keys in the door the next morning after coming home for the night.
Perhaps, a bit less beer is in order. Practice a protocol religiously. Place keys, and a couple of other small items in a wooden box, with wallet next to that. Never misplace keys or wallet.
Once me has keys in me bear hands but me was looking everywhere for it.
The elderly pandemic plugger did not have this problem as he never went outside.
I would like to tell you ‘bout the key to true happiness – but I don’t know where I put that #%÷$&! thing again!
Yes I have done this one !
If you area True Plugger, you haven’t seen your key in years.
i left my keys like that overnight once
Better than finding them in a locked vehicle, hanging in the ignition. Then you have to spend hours searching for the spare set to unlock the door.
My dad before he passed told me not to worry about my memory until I walked into the bathroom and said, “Now what did I come in here for?”
I do that a lot when I get home from grocery shopping
Home from the local bar??
…or your cars ignition.
I often find things in the very first place I look, after going through the whole house and eventually coming back for a better look. :)
They are always in the last place you look.
Rule 1 after coming home – put keys and wallet in their proper locations; avoids a number of problems.
Or my cell phone or glasses…
I did that once – but in my early 20s. I was horrified, as I was living alone and always kept the apartment locked up like Fort Knox. There was a little alcohol involved, as I worked in a bar, but I wasn’t at all drunk. I decided it might have been because I worked two jobs, had worked an 8-hour shift and then a 4-hour shift. But it never happened again!
We keep our keys on the fridge in the kitchen – also wallets, etc for going out.
When we walk into the house keys are put on their hooks. Wallet, etc are put in the magnetic baskets also on the fridge. Key rings have so many keys that if they were not there there would be big empty space which would stand out and definitely be noticed.
Every night before going to bed I take inventory in the kitchen – door locked, count off – 1, 2, 3,4,5,6 – all dials on stove turned off, nothing plugged in.
What I do forget is to change from my near distance glasses to my progressive lenses or my progressive/polychromatic lenses when going out of the house. These days this is not that important as it is rare that I am driving – only time since pandemic started was 4 times we decided the weather was too cold or rainy for us to walk back or to our car mechanic when car left there for work and I had to drive another vehicle for us to come home the 3 blocks from same.
