Breakin’ Into My Friend’s Cars

My friend searched my whole room for his keys. And as messy as it is, chances are, things can get lost in here, it’s happened before and I’m sure it can happen again. But sure enough, it wasn’t in my room. So, he decided to check his car. Worse case scenario, the keys would be in there.

And with his luck, the worse case scenario was exactly what happened. He comes back in, sort of pissed, saying his keys are in the car. When I got out there, the keys were in the car already… still in the ignition! And they were sitting there since 11:00pm and it’s now three in the morning.

His dad had the other set of keys, but his house was up the mountain and I’m down town. And there’s no way in hell he’s going to call home this late. So, our only option was to try and pop the lock. I’ve never done it before, but I’ve seen it done many times. So how hard could it be?

Let me tell you, it’s not that simple. You’re pretty much trying to pick a lock, blind folded, because you can’t see what’s going on inside the door panel. It’s just you, the door and your ghetto fabulous coat hanger. All I know is that you stick the coat hanger into the door panel and start pulling it upwards. The idea is to try and hook onto the rod that connects the door handle to the lock, and hopefully unlocking the car. I’m not trying to encourage anyone to try this but incase you find yourself in this situation, that’s what you would have to do.

My friend and I took turns trying to break into his car. After like 10 minutes, I’ve successfully manage to unlock it. I felt like a theft at the time too. I should have just got in and drove it around the block just to see what it’s like to steal a car. But in any case, if I ever need a car, I can always go over and steal my friend’s, now that I have the experience. But don’t you get any smart ideas now…
