#1297 – Boulder

When I was a kid we had a key hidden in a fake rock in our garden. This was just in case there was bad traffic and we got home from school before our mom got home from work. Whenever it happened I would be very careful that nobody would see me pick up the rock. I would casually walk around the yard checking for neighbors walking their dogs or cars driving by. Then, when the coast was clear I would stop next to the rock and bend over to tie my shoe. I would quickly pop the key out of the rock and then untie and tie my shoe to complete the charade. I fooled every bad guy in the area with my amazing acting skills.

Today’s Maximumble is soaked.

    We used to have one of those fake rock keys in our yard. Then we realized that it stood out to the point of being obvious, so we burried the key in a tupperware container instead.

  2. fake sprinkler heads also work plus if your sprinklers go off and it does not you just say that its broken

    My folks put a fake key under a fake rock. The real key was tucked under a paver.

    Biff seems a bit security consious…

    Looks more like Biff keeps a spare house under that fake rock.

    My great-grandmother and great-great-aunt used to live about a block away from each other… each had a key hidden somewhere on their back porch… for the other one’s house!

    @Baughbe – The word “key” is not in the caption.

    Whoah – Baughbe thinks like Biff. Scary!

    My family just put a combination keypad on the garage door, which became really convenient, to the point that nobody ever had a key on them. Which became a problem when I, in my paranoid-evening-news-fueled “I’M HELPING!!!” fervor, locked the door from the garage to the house.

    I remember getting locked out of the house one day when I was little. I had no idea where my Mom went and worried I was gonna miss my show. So, I proceeded to take the little rubber strip out of the window screen to access the living room. Amazement went to anger when Mom came home and found what I did. Those rubber things hurt.

    We have a keypad entry to our garage (which is not connected to the house), and a spare front door key hidden in the garage. Until my husband uses it. Then he loses it in the house.

    I remember getting trapped outside the house once. Mom wasn’t home and so I piled stuff up to reach the window to open it and climb inside. Thankfully, the couch was right there so it was a soft landing. ^^

    Judging by the size of the fake rock, I’m guessing the spare is a spare house, not a spare key.
