Their garage was still loaded with boxes of stuff so my sister parked her car in the driveway, ran in to get something and left her keys in the car. Her husband remembered something he needed and went into the house too. Literally one minute later someone stole her car.

They easily tracked it down like a lost iPhone. Helicopters and everything. The guy didn't go down easy though, he started jumping curbs and basically thrashing the poor thing. Really did a number on it. Of course the thief was a useless multiple-felon piece of shit well known to the Las Vegas police, and they brought her car back to her and said "Welp, got your car back."

Hope your insurance don't crap all over you guys on that.....leaving key in car....and all....much less obviously being observed rather closely.....

My insurance won't even be involved. Her insurance? They are covering the damages, but my sister says she'll probably just sell it after it's fixed and get a new one. That's how she is. And she can definitely afford it.

Isn't the fob just a backup, with a paired smartphone being the primary "key" to activate the vehicle?

I thought this was interesting. If you go here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...scenarios.html

You will find that the CDC's latest "best estimate" of your survival rate if you contract COVID to be:

Age Survival Rate

0-19 99.997%

20-49 99.98%

50-69 99.5%

70+ 94.6%

Why is the economy shut down again?

If masks work, why do people who test positive have to quarantine? Couldn't they just wear a mask and go about their business?

I think that's right, but she said she had left the "key" in the car.

The cool thing about fobs is they never have to leave your pocket (or purse). Makes car theft a lot more difficult.

Get your fob wet and see how that works out.

I forgot you don't leave the house any more and have never been caught in the rain.

Edit: For the sake of accuracy I should have stated that, " It doesn't ever rain where you live"
