Default be careful of electric door locks

I had a most unpleasant experience, or at least my arm did.
My husband was driving my PT (he doesn't drive it much - 'cause this is MY car) and I had the window down and my arm leaning on the door. As he accelerated, the door lock locked ON my tender underarm OUCH a pinch and a nice round bruise insued.
Keep your arms away from the locks! It hurts!

[B)]Sorry for the owie. Thanks for the warning.
Another thing you might look out for! If you have a sun roof, remmber to close it at night. Some years ago, I went out to My Toy PU, got in and starteld a wild cat. It was everywhere in that little cab, and I didn't realize what it was, till it was gone, back out the top. Only nerves were worse for wear. And fortunely no spray.
