Tired of taking public transportation, Mary bought an old used car. One day on her way back to the parking lot at the end of the busy workday, she was surprised to see a man and a woman trying to unlock her car with a coathanger.
“Can I help you?” Mary asked the woman, who was standing back watching.
The woman eyed the man shiftily and said, “We can’t get in.”
“Here, let me try.” Mary took the coathanger from the man, thinking this might be a chance to have a little fun. She fiddled with the coathanger, moving it this way and that, but she couldn’t quite reach the knob inside to open the door. “Nope,” she said after a while. “I can’t get it.
“Oh wait,” Mary went on. “I think I have a key.”
Mary pulled out her car key and opened the door. The man and the woman ran away. Mary laughed all the way home.
