You’ve lost your car keys, and are about to lose your mind.
You’ve looked everywhere—have torn your house apart—but can’t find those keys.
Your day has ground to a halt. Your life is on hold. A glazed look has come into your eye. You’re going nuts!
All because of a missing set of keys.
You begin another search. Like a wild man, you rummage through room after room. Half an hour later, they still haven’t turned up. You throw your-self on the sofa and groan: “This is ridiculous!”
Finally, you check your pocket. For the keys? No, for the bus fare you’re going to need to get to work. It’s come to that.
Talk about feeling foolish.
