I'll be honest, if I could use valet parking everywhere, I would. I mean, I do freak out a little bit at the thought of a stranger driving my baby away, but at least it will be brought back to me. When I saw this post from Evansville Watch about a man who said his truck was stolen, I immediately thought...Man, this is such a LIBERTY thing to do!

BOL/ Stolen Vehicle In Progress- 2800 N St Joe, Rural King. Owner of the truck was inside the store and states their truck was gone when he came back out. Vehicle is a 1996 extended cab, two door GMC truck, with handicap plates and a bug shield on the front. No direction of travel. Keys were not left in the vehicle.
-Caller drove a different vehicle to the store and forgot what vehicle they arrived in. This truck was NOT stolen.

Parking is not one of my strengths. If you have ever been in the car with me driving, I know that you are laughing. Not only do I struggle to keep it between the lines, I frequently forget where I've parked. And yes, there have been times when I've driven my husband's car and felt totally lost in the parking lot. We do have similar cars, just different colors, so you can see how I could easily get confused.

Jen Crowe "One time at a gas station on a road trip I went in to get drinks and came back out, started to get in what I thought was our black SUV lol totally someone else’s vehicle, thank goodness they weren’t around it but they left it unlocked! I was halfway in their car and I hear my husband yelling at me “wrong car babe wrong car!!” I was soooo embarrassed."

SEE: Newburgh Man's Voice-to-Text Fail Leads to Hilarious Comments on Facebook

A gentleman who goes by Bob Lob Law on Facebook recently posted what was meant to be a nice public service to the other members of the private group, Life in the Burgh...Newburgh, to let them know traffic was backed up on a road in town due to a car that had found its way into a ditch. Thanks to a voice-to-text fail, he may have inadvertently changed the name of the road forever.

Items You Shouldn't Leave in Your Car

Right up front, I'm not including children and pets on this list; it's understood that they should never be left in a vehicle, ESPECIALLY in hot weather. And in fact, there's a device that comes with a phone app that notifies you of movement in your vehicle when you're not in it. Sounds pretty valuable to me. But back to the business at hand...what you shouldn't be leaving in your car. Some are super obvious, but I had to include them since it would just be silly if I didn't. On we go...
