Drove to work with the top up.

Dropped the top for lunch. Then once parked back in the garage at work, put the top back on.

Went and worked the rest of the afternoon.

When I packed up my stuff to go home, my keys were missing. I forgot them in the ignition because I turned off the car to put the top back up. (I leave the doors unlocked)

#-o

I'm a dummy. At least nobody noticed!

I left the keys in the ignition once because they got stuck there (I drilled out my steering lock spec-miata style, thats only the second time its ever locked in.)

Ya I locked my keys in my car once. Felt like a complete moron when a guy from the lock smith company came and popped it open using a coat hanger (duh, I coulda done that). Felt even dumber when I got the bill for $40.

One time I parked my car top down and when I came back my keys were just sitting in the cupholder. I was lucky no one drove off with my car. :oops:

Ha... good one. Guess it is good that you didnt lock your doors.

I have left my keys dangling from the trunk all day before.

I locked My keys in my car twice. Once when I was soft top, and I just unzipped the window and reached in and unlocked it. Did it last week with the hard top on. luckily my gf had her keys.

I never lock my doors. Nothing of value inside the car and myquick-release steering wheel and hidden fuel-cut switch prevents someone from starting the car and driving off. If they want it, they're gonna have to tow it. Even then, I hired Optimus Prime to watch over my car 24/7.
