Jumped in car with landlord, retraced my steps, nothing to be found. SHIT!
Call my dad to tell what happened, turns out a guy phoned him that he found a mobile phone under his car, and called 'Dad' from the addressbook. So, phone back after one day, gave the guy a good bottle of wine as thanks.
Unluckily after three weeks still no keys. I didn't tag them with name, address or phonenumber (paranoid! ;), but with a barcode thingie. It's a service from a big supermarket chain. If you lose your keys and someone throws them in a mailbox, they are sent to the head office, they scan the barcode, then send the keys to the rightful owner. But as I said, after three weeks still no word. Also a visit to the policeoffice didn't help in finding my keys.
So yesterday I phone my garage to order new carkeys (keys and locks are electronic so luckily I don't have to change the locks). Total costs (including new transponder for the remote control) 130 Euros. Bah.
Yesterday night, I get back home, find a thick envelope. Guess what? Someone mailed my keys to the supermarket and I got them back! AAAAAAARGH! Today I call the garage: They can send the transponder and the remote control back, but not the key itself, since it's already programmed for my car (specific codes etc.) So, I can cough up 47 Euro's for a spare spare key >.<
