When Mike replaced my van last fall, he bought me one with those fancy doors that open automatically when you push a button on the remote. At first I thought they were just for silly spoiled people, but I have really come to appreciate not having to wrench open heavy van doors.
It has also come in handy now that I have a toddler and a baby in a carrier. I can push the button and Amanda can climb up into her seat and be out of the way so I can buckle the baby in her spot. This has been the routine after our weekly chiropractic visits.
So, Amanda and I were both dumbfounded when the van door wouldn't open as we walked toward the van. I pushed the "Unlock" button several times and tried again. Then I could see through the window that a door was opening on the other side of the van.
"Oh, I'm pushing the wrong button," I think to myself. I try the other button. "Huh, still not working." Then I realize that two doors are opening and closing on another van through the windows of the van I was standing next to.
"Oh no! My van keys are opening someone else's van!"
"Oh, wait. That is my van."
Alright, who thought it would be funny to confuse the pregnant lady by parking their identically colored van next to mine?
