The locksmith charged $75 for opening my car door?
All he did was pick up the key I dropped outside

they charge so much 'cause the public agrees to pay that price. the locksmith probably depends on a service-provider to give him leads. the service-provider will acquire a certain percentage of that $75 .
also … you'd be smart to keep car-key and house-key on separate key-rings. take your car in to check brakes or change oil … the house-key can be easily duplicated. likewise, if you lose your car-key … the person finding the key could access your house. if you were to re-key your house … much more expensive than the paltry $75 you paid. and then the scam begins.

Locksmithing is not charity. You paid for your mistake. Life is like that.
