Default Idiot's Car Troubles

Today, i left my house at the normal time to head to school. I went outside and started my truck, and the windows were iced over, with ice on the inside as well. I took the keys out of the ignition, leaving the truck running, locked the doors and went in the house to get a scraper. I came back outside and cleaned the windows, unlocked the door and drove away. It was when i go to school that i realized that i didn't have my keys. I've already parked my truck, and realize that if i kill it, i'm stuck. My foot slipped off the clutch when backing up, and killed it. Fortunately, i caught the ignition switch before it locked backwards I'm now stuck at my house, my spare keys lost, and waiting for my mother to come home with my spares, in 2 hours. needless to say i will be late to school.

Ugh I had issues with aftermarket keyless entry applied to my old Subaru, which had those power locks that work by syncing all doors with the drivers door instead of with a switch. The car would always fight the keyless entry unit, sometimes they would click back and forth 10 times before settling on a position. Not long after getting it, my door shut and locked me out in the freezing cold for a half hour. I pried the window back and managed to hit the switch, but again the lock fought itself and then autolocked. Never have I been more annoyed in my life.

To this day I leave my door open when the engine is running. I got locked out of that thing so many times I just can't let that door shut.

My truck is a a 1994 Chevy S10, power nothing lol. I did put an '03 grille and interior in it to spruce it up. I always hated the look of the second generation s10's.
