You will stand there staring at the keys in your ignition while going through your pockets in hopes that you will find your keys. It’s as though the keys in the ignition are a mirage, not real.

You will check all the door handles on your car multiple times, the trunk will also be checked several times.

Making Promises

Now you move into the stage when you make promises. You swear that if you can get to your keys you will never be mean to anyone ever again.
