    Yesterday a lady was checking into her room at an apartment for the day, and as we discussed the key to her room ...

    She shared this 'key' story:

    "My son lost the key to the truck at the beach.
    So, he had another key made.

    Dad didn't know there was a new key,
    and when he went to use the truck,
    it would not start.

    They had the truck towed to the dealer.
    First they thought it was one thing, then another.
    The truck was all torn apart.

    Then the dealer mechanic realized it was the key.

    Apparently, you have to have a computerized version of a key made for some of the newer vehicles these days. It costs between $100 - $300 depending on the car."

    Hmm ... a story of 'the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing'

    Maybe a couple of other things, too

    Someone sure spent a lot of time painting this truck!
