Ok...

Well I went to Wal-mart for some random stuff. And I lock the door with the keys inside. And I'm like "f***ing great." At least I had a spare at the house... 10 minutes away which would be an hour to an hour and a half to walk cause the speed limit is 45-55 on the way. So I try and call from an employees phone (didn't have my phone me, I'm hitting myself cause of it.) but no answer. So I call the non-emergency line and they say all the squads are busy (like all 3 of 'em) and I'm like ok. So its a half hour wait according to the guy I was talking to. That was at 12:50. Now its 2:45 AM and I've lost hope. I find the same employee and ask if I could use it and I get an answer finally. So I get my ride to the house and get my key, get back to wally world, and get in and go home.

Now I'm lucky I had a spare.

So..... If anyone here could point me to a device which I could store a spare key around the car so this won't happen again?

Just keep a door key in your wallet! Simple as that! Otherwise they have magnetic key boxes that you can put under your car or up inside something. I used to have one on my cutlass, I put it up right between the body and my gas tank. Really hard to get to and you'd have to know exactly where it was. Don't use that spot...because now people know about it

Man, that sucks.
I like the idea of keeping a spare in the wallet.
I once had a wallet that had a place for car key and a house key.
Hmmm...keep a spare house key in the same place I keep my driver'* license, which of course, has my address on it.
Maybe not such a great idea.

I carry a spare door key for both cars in my wallet. And a hidden ignition key in each car.
