new car key may screw me up
I have my keys all organized and working well.
I keep them all (at least the ones that I want to carry every day bcs I may need them at the drop of a hat) on a big ring. No "fob" or bauble.
The ring is big enough that the stack of keys will stack very flat--they don't splay out in all directions. And I can fold the ring over the heads of the keys.
It fits very tidily in my pocket, and even in my teeny little purse.
But we just got a new car--we took over my ILs mini-van.
and the key is one of those honking big black plastic electronic doo-dad auto-lock things.
I almost had palpitations when DH tried to give me my key to the car last night. I *CANNOT* function w/ that huge key! It can't go on my keychain. it's just too HUGE, and it'll fit funny on the ring, to boot.
He's going to check and see if we can get a *copy* of the key without the electronics; him saying that calmed me down a little bit. There's no alarm; all the key does is lock and unlock the doors, and I don't need that. I haven't had it for years, and I'll gladly give up the convenience to be able to keep my keys in the same organizational style that works so well.
What has changed in your world that threw your "systems" into a tailspin?
