    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.
    I guess she meant every family has different values as to sense of community. Some of families are way more communal, (adult) children help their parents and parents help their (adult) children pretty freely and unlimitedly. Some of families are more individual and every member has been raised to stand absolutely on their own feet.

    Ok. Even if she couldn't help the OP she didn't have to text her saying that. She could have texted or called and said "I can't help you. I'm sorry" or something. I'm 26 years old and if I called my mom right now and told her that I was broke down on the side of the highway she would NEVER say "Sux 4 U".

    In fact I don't think my mom (who had me when she was 17) would EVER use teen jargen even if it is just a text.

    I know mine wouldn't. Oh heck, mine wouldn't even be able TO text, we're still working on how if you have your phone turned off, it doesn't ring when someone calls! If I asked her to "text" me, she'd probably mail me a written letter.

    LOL! Delfina, that describes me to a T! Family is always telling me to turn my phone on. I don't because it is for emergencies only. Different generation I suppose, not tied to the whole technology yet. Heard too many innane conversations in the grocery store to want to turn it on! LOL!

    And , yes I still write notes and letters to friends and family. Believe it or not, they enjoy receiving them. Takes time, forethought and effort. Yup , I'm hopeless!

    Thanks for the laugh! At least I can see myself in your post!

    My mom is always using text speak, and I'd royally love to slap her for it sometimes.

    It's the first time I locked myself out of my car. I'm usually very very good about getting everything I need from the car before it's locked - but the two days I worked before that just absolutely slaughtered any ability I had to think. As soon as I went to close the door, I tried so hard to catch it, but I just wasn't fast enough!

    And yes, this is the same pain in the ass cousin. She finally came into use XDD

    Oh well.. it'll sux 4 mom when she has her own horses to train and work 8) Considering she doesn't know how. This can work two ways.

    And considering I run errands and crap for her, yeah Alwaysbehind, the woman could help me out when I'm being a doofus once in awhile. She's bound to do it eventually, I'll have fun the day that happens for sure.

    Sorry, but I thought that was funny. Sounds like something my Mum would do, my Dad would probably do the same. Glad you got it all sorted out though.

    My mom bought me a magnetic little box so you can hide a spare key under your car...maybe you should get one of those if you lock your keys in your car a lot (I do lol ^_^)
