Dennis,

I found this very funny. It happened to me, twice, but in reverse. I had =

become so accustomed to driving an EV that when my supervisor asked me to =

take her to the airport in her car and then park it in our office parking =

lot I got in, clicked the key to on as I would in my own cars, looked at he=
r =

and said "Your car won't start." I had forgotten you have to turn it more, =

until the starter kicks in. Then I did the same thing with an ICE I rented=
, =

even called the rental company to tell them the car wouldn't start. After =
a =

little while I remembered what the problem might be, got the car started an=
d =

had to call them back and try to explain that I was not a nut case and not =

to send anyone to help me.

Gail
