my key fob missing its insides and screaming.
me looking for the insides of my key fob and screaming.
went to have coffee with my friend
locked up my car
put my key in my pocket
when i returned to the car
all i had left of my electronic key
was the empty screaming shell pictured above
insides were nowhere to be found
used the key/shell in the car door
and the panic button screamed nonstop
with no electronics to turn it off
until my car started
each and every time
a bit dumbfounded
as key fob was still in one piece
in my pocket
found a tiny screw missing in back
somehow it had
opened itself up
insides popped out
closed itself back up
and was empty
like it never happened
luckily i have daughters
with my keys all over the place
and my car has stopped screaming
but my old key fob still looks upset.
