So I'm leaving a Target store and get in my car to start it. Simultaneously I notice someone has left a leaflet on my windshield. With the car started I get out to remove the leaflet when my car door closes behind me partially. You know how the door closes but not all the way? Well bummer, it's locked and I can't get it open, and the engine is running. There is enough of a gap where if I pryed something in there I could reach the lock release for the door. What would be perfect is a wire clothes hanger. I ask a couple of people if they happen to have one in their car, but no luck. I go back inside Target and ask for a wire clothes hanger. "Sorry, all we have now is plastic hangers." ARGH. I tell a worker my situation and she offers me a long plastic tag holder about 1 inch by 3 feet long. Hmm, this might work, but after 20 minutes of it slipping off the lock release I need another idea. Finally I call a locksmith and cry over the money I will lose over my stupid mishap. At this point I'm so desperate I'm even looking on the ground for something that might help. Then what do I see on the ground, but a 5 inch twistie, like the ones in Transformer packages. I get into MacGyver mode and fasten the twistie in a loop over the price-tag holder and cut edges in the holder to secure the twistie better while it's inside the car. Well after a few minutes of careful looping and pulling, I manage to unlock the door! I leave before the locksmith can get there with money saved and a big sigh of relief. Thank you twistie!
