Tony left the shopping mall with his arms full of bags and the sun shining on him. As he neared his car, he started awkwardly digging in his pockets with his arm full of bags. He did not find what he was looking for so he transferred the bags on one arm to the other arm, which already had bags. Now Tony had a lot of bags on one arm. He plunged his free hand into his pockets but came up empty. Now he dropped the bags and rifled through all his pockets with both hands. Tony ran to his car with a look of despair on his face. He tried to open the car door, but the handle jiggled uselessly. Then he saw something on the passenger seat of the car. He sighed and pulled his phone from his pocket.
