Alpo Posted December 30, 2022 Share Posted December 30, 2022 Dick Francis book. There's a party, and everybody's cars are parked up on this flat spot at the top of a slope. There's a horse van. And it rolled down the slope. 10 dead people. The guy that owned the van insisted that he has left it in gear and is left the brake on. The woman that owned the place where the party was asked the wife of the owner of the van if her husband had locked the door. And she got all upset and said "you don't lock the doors at a friend's house!" In case you're interested, a little kid was messing around and climbed up in the van and was pushing levers and managed to knock it in neutral and take the brake off, and that's what caused it. Oh well. But I read that statement - you don't lock the doors at a friend's house. I do. Doesn't matter where I'm at. I get out of the truck and I lock the doors. So you've gone over to your buddy's house. Would you leave your car unlocked while you were inside the house seeing your friend? Maybe I'm just paranoid.
