on the contrary i like it. epic fail.
well important thing is that u found them.
had an issue once with my pathfinder, where the car actually locked itself with the keys inside.
fortunately i was at the Nissan service center getting an oil change, and they explained to me that this is impossible and the car will never lock with keys inside because of the chip.
long story short, they opened it easy and turns out the mechanic had removed the keys from ignition but kept them in the car so the chip was too far for the reader to read.
i can imagine the stress of grounding all flights over a small key incident.
