How do I get myself into these things...

So, today I volunteer to go down and retrieve my boss' suitcase so he can pack his newly returned suit for his trip to Europe. I figure, how hard can it be to gain access to a trunk. Well, apparently harder than I thought. I find his car and try opening it with the fob on his keychain. After no response, I'm afraid I'm trying to get into the wrong car. I look around, nope, no other car like his around here. I then notice that the key next to the fob on the key chain is a Toyota key...nope, not the one for this car. Hrumph! So, I start trying random keys in the door. I finally find one that works and gain access to the inside of the car. I then spend the next couple of minutes wondering how on Earth Infiniti could hide the trunk release button so well. I finally locate it and pop the trunk....at least I thought I popped the trunk. I actually popped the gas door open. *sigh* Well, hitting the trunk release button does nothing. So I get back out of the car, lock it up, and then try the key AGAIN in the trunk. Nothing. I stand there...staring at the trunk with my hands on my hips and wondering how in the world do I manage to get myself into these things. I try the key one more time and Praise the Lord the trunk opens. It's now taken me about 10 min to retrieve my boss' luggage from the trunk of his car. Is that some kind of new world record?

That's the thing about cars, they are all the same, but incredibly different at the same time! Nothing like a rental car with the elusive little gas door button when you are holding up everyone at the gas station. OY!

I rent a lot of cars to travel through work and Vanessa is right: They're all the same yet totally different! I always try to push all the buttons before I head out somewhere so I know what each one does.

But 10 minutes to open a trunk is pretty impressive! ;)
