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.

    Sounds fair to me.

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