Do you think I screwed up?

About a year ago a large car dealer in town was promoting their new vehicles. They (the dealership) mailed out to everyone in Nye County a small square black remote control device. Now out of all those little remotes that were mailed out ONE would unlock a new car. Whoever, had that one would win a brand new car. Are you still with me?
Well, yours truly never went to check out hers. I had too much to do and figured that I would never win anyways. So I tossed it in a catch-all drawer never to be seen again, until 3 months ago when I decided to clean up my drawer. When I picked up the little remote it felt rather heavy for it's tiny size. So I took a knife and pryed it opened. There were two little batteries in it, like the ones used for a watch. Since my watch batteries died I decided to see if these little batteries would fit it. They fit it perfectly and my watch has run great with perfect time for 3 straight months now.

By the way no one ever won the car. So here's my question. I bet your can see it coming huh?
Do you think all the remotes had good running batteries in them? Do you think I may have had the remote control that would have opened the new car door? :bnghd:

Please be kind and tell me I probably didn't have the one and only remote that would have unlocked a brand new car.

Hmm...that's the kind of thing that makes you feel like this:
at yourself.
You never know, but let's hope that you weren't the only one that chucked their's into a junk drawer, but then again the fact that your's had batteries might make you think otherwise.

Odds are that they all had batteries. And you aren't the only one who didn't bother to try and win the car, so, I wouldn't worry. I would be happy I got free batteries for my watch.

just kidding!!!!!!!!!! i dont believe in those promotions. I dont think they ever send out a remote, key, or any other thing that will really open up the car. They know that a lot of people will never show so they can always keep the car, attract some people who will PURCHASE a car and thereby get 100% profit.
relax and i agree with the other posts enjoy your new batteries!!!!!!!!!!!
