I tested my key-bag by trying to get into my Dodge while stood next to it - I couldn't.

So it lives in the bag in the house - and naked in my pocket when I go out.  

Electric boot releases are all well and good until you disconnect the battery and shut the boot.  And the battery is in the boot . . . the Dodge does have jump start connections under the bonnet, but I dropped the rear seats, crawled through, pulled the nice big glow-in-the-dark exit handle and climbed out . . .

Handbook too- I think 7.2

 

BTW- does nobody know how to write a handbook ? They tell you guff you don't need to know - where the speedo is, how many gears it's got - but bury the stuff you do need in random sections . At the front of a handbook should be tyre pressures , wheel changing and , in the MX5 ,book - how to get into the boot if you are an idiot 

I have a big Stihl strimmer with a 200page , multilingual handbook. What is the one thing you need to do on a strimmer? Replace the nylon strimming line , correct  . So  is 'replacement ' or 'line ' even in the index? Nah and the text is in 3 separate sections , indexed under something else - I curse the bastards responsible very time the line runs out (as obviously, being an idiot ,  I can never remember)

John - You have proved that Faraday Bags do work - not scientifically but empirically!  Further to that you have proved the theory that sh*t does in fact occur in many, many ways.

Depending on the situation wielding a large percussive instrument while loudly shouting f*ck it does work.

Reminder to myself (a) Don't purchase a Faraday Bag (b) If purchased leave at home when driving.

When my 7 was recovered to M1 service area, and I had to wait over 2 hours for onward recovery, I had to provide my registration to staff at WH Smith shop to avoid such a penalty, backed up with evidence from the recovery driver. Especially as it was deposited in the coach parking only area.

Hopefully with your receipts from lock company, you'll be excused.

Makes a mockery of the signs saying "don't drive tired ... stop at services".
