Had front mud flaps fitted, a job which involved removing the front wheels. The box with wheel nut locking key was left on the passenger seat rather than returned to boot.
With a background as a support mechanic in Thoroughbred Sports cars it is normal to re torque wheel nuts after a few miles so a day or two later I got out my torque wrench. The key that had been returned to us was not the one for the car!!!!! What are the implications of that on a lonely road or a motorway!!!
Moral of the story: ALWAYS CHECK THAT YOU HAVE THE CORRECT WHEEL NUT KEY FOR YOUR CAR!!!!

The AA can't help if you don't have the correct locking wheelnut key.

Once when I went to get some tyres, I was about 3rd or 4th in the queue, and expecting a reasonable wait. Suddenly I was being attended to, as all those in front of me had alloys whels but didn't know where their keys were, so got sent on their way by the tyre fitters
