worked as an RAC patrol for a few years 10 years ago and saw loads of things like that.Once got a phone call from my brothers girlfriend after she had finished work, about 10pm, saying all the lights on her car had stopped working.
Went round to where she worked, about 2 miles away. She was panicking. Got in turned the lights on, and they all came on. Turned out she was turning the wrong stalk and putting the rear wiper on. God knows how you can forget where the lights are when she had owned the car for 2 years and finishs work in the dark every night.
About 6 months later got a phone call off her saying the key wont turn, told her to wiggle the steering wheel as the steering lock will be on, "no it still not turning". Went down to their house, gave the wheel a wiggle and it turned straight away.
Shes definitely not the brightest
went to a vectra at tescos with the owner saying her car wont unlock would i break into it for her.
after i'd got into it the key wouldnt turn in the ignition!!
took the key off her to check it and pressed the button only to see a vectra 3 rows away indicators flashing as i locked and unlocked it
Had to break in to loads of cars but that was the only one i had to lock up again before the owner came out
