You need a fob to get in but the sensors let you out. Each space is assigned and there’s no vehicle in number one. But it’s not empty —the local Lidl is missing a trolley and that trolley is missing a wheel.

fob: a small security hardware device with built-in authentication used to control and secure access to mobile devices, computer systems, network services and data.



How did I get this old without knowing this? The thing you use to work the remote functions on a car is a key fob or "fob". A similar device will get you past security or into a parking lot.
