Thank You

Thank you, Eliana, for asking to play with my keys then dropping them when you got bored.

Thank you, pregnant brain, for making me forget I had given the keys to Eliana while in the UVU Event Center.

Thank you, UVU Event Center, for getting back to me so quickly after I contacted you about my lost keys. In this case bad news was better than no news.

Thank you, Eric, for not scolding me about losing the only key to our car.

Thank you, Brent Brown car dealership in Orem, for trying to rip me off 100% of the times I've been there for any reason. If you hadn't done that I wouldn't have insisted on finding a different dealership to replace my key. I knew $150 for one key was an exorbitant amount.

Thank you, Doug Smith Autoplex in American Fork, for giving me a much more reasonable price for a replacement key. Now we have two keys for half the price I would have had to pay for one.

Thank you, Eric, for knowing me well enough to understand that I prefer to fix my own mistakes and standing back to allow me to do just that.

Thank you, Mom and Dad, for lending me a car while mine was keyless.

Thank you, Grandpa, for bringing a towing dolly to get me to Doug Smith Autoplex so I didn't have to pay for a tow truck.

Finally, thank you, staff at Doug Smith Autoplex, for sticking to the price you quoted and for employing married men. There's nothing wrong with single men, it's just that married men understand that sometimes women (particularly pregnant ones) get hormone overdoses and can cry a lot when road construction blocks all the visible entrances to the dealership. They know to keep their mouths shut and look sympathetic for their own good.

While I would have preferred to never lose my keys, at least the cost was greatly reduced from what I expected and now we have two car keys.
