Hockey, Fights, and Car Windows

This past Saturday was the Hershey Bears home opener. Hershey, an affiliate team of the Washington Capitols, was defeated 5-6 in a tough overtime loss to Norfolk.
Being a novice hockey fan, I can’t give a valid recap of the game. I just go for the fights. Two decent skirmishes, a fractured arm, and one all out heavy weight slug fest was a good night.
However, in the parking lot I after the game I saw the most interesting occurrence. A man circled an SUV on foot and smashed the rear drivers side window. Cool, I thought. I’m watching a man steal a car. He then causally opened the door and pulled a key out from within. Oh, he just locked his keys inside. I laughed thinking to myself that this will be an expensive hockey game for him. As he drove away I couldn’t help but notice something dangling from his hatchback. He was stuck in traffic so I casually crutched over. (I tore a tendon in my ankle in August.) The man rolled down the window so I politely told him that there was a set of keys dangling from the lock in his hatchback. He then got out, said a few expletives, got his keys, went back into car, and said to his passenger that he had found the keys. Was it a good deed on my part? Sure, but someone had to add a little insult to injury.
