WRONG CAR

They don't make them like they used to... and in the case of car keys... that's a good thing.

The story of an Ohio mother landed on our Cutting Room Floor... when she went to pick up her daughter's car.

She spotted the nickel-gray Toyota Camry, unlocked the car, started it up and drove home...never realizing it was the wrong car.

Meanwhile, an Ohio University student came out of class and saw his mid-1980's Camry was gone.

At first he thought it had been towed.

But police couldn't find a record of it.

It wasn't until the next morning that the daughter realized the car in their driveway wasn't hers.

She tracked down the owner who showed up with police to help sort it all out.

Toyota says technology wasn't as sophisticated two decades ago.

So, there were only so many ways to cut a key, making it possible for such a mix-up to occur.

POTTY TRAINING

Apparently it's never too late for a little potty training.

That would be sanitation technology 101 for college students in Malaysia.

That's right. Some colleges are going to offer courses on how to keep public restrooms clean.

Malaysia's government recently said it wanted to start a "toilet revolution" in a country where public restrooms have long nauseated citizens and tourists with their lack of basic items like toilet paper, soap and sometimes even toilet seats.

MUSTY WALLET

A woman in Iowa was shocked to get back her wallet... lost some 60 years ago.

Apparently, a building engineer at her old high school found the red alligator grain wallet as he tracked down a broken pipe.

It was on top of an air duct in a basement storage room that once housed girls' lockers.

The now 75 year old woman said her wallet was lost when her coat was stolen in 1947.

No money was in the wallet, but it did have a $4 activity pass, a student ID card, and a membership card for the YMCA.
