Locked out

(Jan's phone conversation with RAA Road Watch late this afternoon….)
"So let me try to recap this: you want us to break into your car, but the car key is not in your car?!?"
"Eh, yes"
"Where is your car now?"
    "At home"

"What do you mean?"
"If you are home already, you don't need the car to get home, right?
