Breaking Odds! Wert Encounters Strangeness In Detroit Parking Garage

Despite the fact that we know there's only so many signals our key fobs can use to transmit codes to our car for commands like "lock", "unlock" and "alarm", we're still kind of weirded out when we encounter through random chance, a vehicle sharing said signal. We guess we shouldn't be too surprised because as we were once told, after an overanxious valet locked the RFID key fob in the trunk of the Corvette it belonged to, that "there's only about fifty or so combinations between the keys and this specific vehicle." Plus, given Mitsubishi and DaimlerChrysler once had a "sharing is caring" relationship, we're under the assumption that maybe our fob shared some kind of doohickey or something with the Montero sitting next to our car. Still, what the hell are the odds of this happening?

detroit9000 — Of course I wouldn't need lessons in how to sound obnoxious, thank you very much. Writing obnoxious on the other hand, you seem to have me bested.
