This is 22-year-old Joey and 21-year-old Alex. They're roommates at UC Davis, but recently went over to Alex's mom's home for dinner in Folsom, California.
When they showed up, Alex's mom, Christy, was unloading her groceries from her car. She accidentally locked her keys inside. They were all locked out, so Christy called AAA.
But when the AAA employee pulled into Christy's driveway, and got out to have her sign a form, his car door slammed closed behind him. "The van was locked and still running!" Christy told BuzzFeed News, laughing.
"At first I laughed a bit, and then I joked with the guy and told him not to worry because I was a AAA member so I could call AAA for him, but he didn't think it was very funny," Christy said.
Christy said the AAA guy asked to borrow her phone to call AAA. He also, apparently, asked her for the number for AAA. "I told him, 'it's right there on the side of your car,'" she said.
They were apparently told that it'd take 30 minutes to get another AAA person out there, but Christy said no one showed up. So she offered to call again for him.
And after another 40 minutes, the second AAA employee finally showed up.
She said the whole ordeal took about two hours. But AAA Guy #2 was able to laugh at how ridiculous it was.
AAA Guy #1, however, did not have time to play games that day. "At one point Guy #1 was getting impatient and asked if he could use some of my tools, and then went into the garage and grabbed a hammer and a metal hook to try to break into his AAA van," Christy recalled.
