my dad used to leave the keys in the ignition
he never lost them that way. seriously. from about 1950 to 1978, when some arse nicked his Cortina and trashed it on the moors. That was night they showed " vanishing point " on the telly. He put the keys in his pocket after that. Still didn't lock the car. I am the exact opposite.
I helped a lady in distress in a supermarket car park who had locked her keys in her Fiat 126. After assuring her I was not a car thief, I popped out the small file blade on my mini swiss army penknife and popped it in the lock, gave it a gentle twist and .....bazinga. no damage at all. I advised her to by a Krooklok.
