The World is Stupid

I couldn't get the car to start this morning.

After about 20 minutes, I realized that the issue was that the keyfob battery was dead.

I was late to work because my car key ran out of power.

The world is stupid. 

I have to be to work in 4 hours. "thud"

1 I can relate.  As much as I love Honda, being entirely dependent on a fob to start the car or even get into the car is NOT acceptable.

2 My Subaru fob has a key hidden inside it, however I don't know what the keyless ignition will do after I open the door with it. (I think the only time I tried to use it I discovered I had an alarm.)

3 In my experience on modern cars with remote entry/remote start, if you unlock the door with the key, you'll set off the car alarm.  The only way I figured out how to turn it off was to then start the engine.  I've seen that work on a Chevy and a Jeep, both under 8 years old.  The Jeep had push-button start, the Chevy required you to put the key in the ignition the old-fashioned way.  In either case the car started fine remotely the next time.
