Red face locked the keys in

Earlier this evening I locked my keys in my vehicle, the car was running.
I called AAA using a friend's card (after trying to unlock the doors myself with a coat-hanger).
It took the tow company about 30 min to get thereafter I called, they were super nice and the gas hardly went down while I waited.
It was really interesting to me how they got the door open.
No damage to the car.
Pictures are coming soon!!

I have a Hyundai and can just call Hyundai Roadside assistance for stuff like that. I got towed once for free. I bet Kia has the same deal. If they're like Hyundai, the number is on a sticker on the window so you can see it from inside or outside the car.

Why didn't you call Kia Roadside Assistance? The number is on a label found on the front door window (lower bottom left nearest the door handle). The phone number is also in your manual and on the Kia web site. In America you have 5 years of assistance as part of your purchase. I have used it to jump start my car when I accidentially ran down the battery. Quick service and didn't have to pay a penny.
