Lincolns are some of the most beautiful cars on the road. Losing the keys to your Lincoln, however, is a very stressful event. If it’s ever happened to you before, then you know the questions that go running through your head:
How Do I Get Back Home?
To My Family?
The sense of loss that overtook me when I was in that situation was enormous. If only I had known what I know now…
Fortunately for you, I’m going to give you the advice you need to save you if you ever lose your keys.
First Things First, Collect Yourself
Every time I think that I’ve lost my keys, my heart begins to beat a little harder, my palms get clammy, my brow sweats, and a sense of panic rushes over me. I become worried, even scared, that I’m never going to find my keys, never going to get back into my car, never going to get here or there…
If I don’t collect myself, I’m liable to lose myself. I’ll begin rushing around like a fool tearing my apartment to pieces trying to find my keys. And by the time I’m done, I’m often left with only a mess and no keys.
Does this sound familiar?
We’ve all been there before.
So what happens next?
We calm down, we collect ourselves, and we trace ourselves back to where we started.
Just remember before you let that happen that panic and worry only lead to mindless destruction. Breath. Pray. Meditate. Collect yourself. Then move on.
If you’re not collected, you’re not going to get anywhere.
Trace Back Your Steps
After you’ve collected yourself, it’s time to trace back your steps. Think about where you are right now and where you a came from.
Suppose you entered the kitchen through the backdoor and then into the living room.
Once you remember this, you can go back through the living room, the kitchen, and out the backdoor. If you haven’t found your keys continue tracing your steps as far you need. Once you’ve figured out where you came from and where you ended up, you’ll have a path way in which the keys must be found.
If you didn’t go to the bathroom, then they’re probably not in there. Just continue searching along the path you walked, tracing your steps until you find your keys.
What if I Don’t Find My Keys?
If you can’t find your keys along the path you’ve traced, either you left them somewhere else, perhaps a restaurant or a local bar. You can call these venues and see if they found a spare set of keys. If this doesn’t work, it’s very possible you left your keys inside your Lincoln. This is when you may have to call in the experts.
Getting Into the Car
At this point, you’re likely going to need to call in some assistance from somewhere else. The police are oftentimes helpful, but they may have larger issues to deal with than helping you find your keys. This means you might have to wait a long time before you can get inside your car.
