Said to be a true account from Sarasota, Florida:
An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! GET OUT OF THE CAR!" The four men didn't wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then she realized why. It was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee, and two 12-packs of beer in the front seat.

A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a carjacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.

    True story... A buddy of mine had a blue Ford Granada with a white viynl top. I grabbed his keys and went to go listen to the tape deck while he shopped for something. I unlocked the door of a blue Granada and was just getting comfy in the seat and noticing it looked cleaner than when we had driven to the mall, when an older gentleman walks up yelling why are you in my car. Long story short. My buddy's car was one aisle over and his door & ignition key would work in the other car, but his keys would not open my buddy's car.

    And I've never stood in front of "my car" clicking the key fob to unlock it, only to realize my car was a couple aisles over.
    Nope, never have done that.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.
