Many years ago I was screwing around and dropped a screw... I kneeled down to pick it up but to my surprise I couldn't find it right away... lets say within 10 seconds. The floor was clean, no much other things around, flat floor and heared it drop. To this day it keeps me busy where that screw did go. Because it was an one of a kind kindda special screw I needed to find it, checked everything. My pants, shoes, sleeves.. anything you can think of. I never found the screw. From that day I am very carefull when I start screwing around... Ha,ha..
Seriously,.. it was gone... as if into an other dimension.
Is it possible that there was a spare key with the light bulbs? I suppose the real question is whether the fob part of the key in the drawer disappeared after this event. Nevertheless, with the whole light going out then finding the key a short while later, it makes me think a ghost or something was involved (still trying to decide if i believe in such things ). Pretty bizarre story

I recently had a really bizarre and unexplainable "missing item turning up in a weird place" experience.
I'll try to make this short, but there's a little back story.
I have two electronic keys for my VW, which I bought new. We have only ever had two keys.
When my son started driving last year one of the batteries in one of the fobs went dead. He was sitting in our recliner and pulled the key apart to replace the battery. One half of the key fell into the recliner. We turned that chair inside out and could not find the missing half. We looked in every nook and cranny and took off the back to look inside etc.....NOTHING.
Of course, I was super irritated, and hoped it would turn up somehow. My son put the other half of the fob in a drawer in his room. I was bummed, but it was soon forgotten.
Fast forward to over a year later....a fuse or a bulb or something burned out in another one of our older cars and we keep extras in the ashtray because it happens occasionally. Its an old truck.
I open the ashtray and root around to see if we have the appropriate bulb or whatever and in the very bottom of the deep ashtray (its one that flips out from the dash) buried under the fuses and bulbs......IS THE KEY
Yep. In one piece. The entire missing key. Plus the battery was not dead.
Now, I'm sure you're thinking, well, the son or husband found it an stuck it the truck ashtray (why there??!!) and forgot to tell me. Nope. It's just the three of us and they were as flabbergasted as I was.
