Random......Wal-Mart Employee Fail.

I went to Wal-Mart to have my oil changed. After the service was completed I paid and went outside to get my keys from the attendant when he realized he had left my keys in the ignition and locked me out of the vehicle.

Instead of becoming upset I saw the humour in the mistake and laughed it off.

A locksmith was called and arrived quickly.

I was calm and collective while the locksmith gained entry into my vehicle but became uneasy when his tool became stuck and he had to remove the entire inside door panel from my door in order to free his tool.

I should have asked for a free oil change but I enjoy an interesting experience every once in while.

Well at least you don't have to start your car with pliers like last time Wal-Mart made a mistake.

Lol, I remember this happening years ago at the East side Wal-Mart in Regina.

I can not remember at all what Wal-Mart did to my ignition system to require me to use pliers to start my Chevette but I do remember having to use the pliers until I junked the car.

Thanks for the comment. Please let me know why this happened because I can not remember.

You had lost your keys and they put the ignition to the locked position, so they had to remove it.
