I would assume that if that is what the OP was expecting she would have said that.

^That is what I was thinking Farnpony.
I am glad that someone helped you though!

Thankfully, my cousin has had to deal with said situations, and the window was cracked, so we were cool and dad did not have to come to the rescue.

Pretty sure I know where I stand with who now. Awesome.
That's bad! Do you lock your keys in your car regularly? I won't lie, the way the text was typed out, made me giggle. I have to admit, I would never just let my child outside with no way to get help or get home. Glad you made it ok.

No way to get help?

The OP had a cell phone and was using it.

How is that no way to get help?

Great to hear someone helped you.

Wouldn't do that if I was a mother either.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

For starters, how about we settle down.

Second, its a general statement, so as I posted in my first post-I would never let any of my children outside EVEN if they had a way of getting help.

Child no. The OP is an adult.

I have boarders who lock things in their vehicles on a regular basis. If we can't 'break in', we call the locksmith. The only time a parent was called was when an inhaler was involved.

AH! I did not realize that! That would make a difference. Regardless, that's still family, she's still her child. I know I would be heading out to bring over a spare set. Different values on family.

I am not so sure it means different values on family.

My mother does not have a spare set of keys to any of my vehicles. I do not think that means we lack family values. It means I am an adult.

My parents locked my sister and I out once. We had a habit of forgetting our house keys and my parents were really tired of us waking them up at 2am. So one night they taped a note to the door that said "Sorry, maybe next time you'll remember your keys, back shed is open!". Luckily my brother had gotten off work very late and let us in, we NEVER forgot our keys again.

At some point parents have to draw the line, as I tell my kids continually, I am your Mother, not your maid and I am NOT at your beck and call.

My mom did come unlock my house the day I locked myself out and my baby IN! Boy did I get an earful about that though. I made the neighbor a spare key that day.
