My dh drove my car last night and whatever he did when he pressed the buttons to lock it, all the windows were left open all night. My car is soaked, as it has been raining here all night. Am I wrong to be so cross? I had to get plastic bags for the seats for the school run but my bum still feels wet.

My DH sat on his keys and did this to his car, apparently if you hold down one of the buttons on the key, it opens all the windows automatically, it's supposed to be to air your car if it's very hot. It's not very helpful in this weather!
I'd be pissed off but it's not like he did it on purpose. Unless he thinks it's funny, I'd let him off.
But if he's laughing at your wet bum, that's a different story!

I am female and I did this. The car remote was in my bag and I leant on my bag (was at a medical appt for DD2). Unbeknown to me when the button was pressed a long time all the windows opened.
I came back to a soaked car. My tip is find a friend with a garage, give them lots of chocolate and wine and kindly ask if you can let the car dry there with the windows open. It will.

I have done this on twice ( although once it was an electronically fault and the window didn't go up). Luckily my DH was pretty relaxed about it and said these things happen and it could be worse.
Maybe you should relax a bit, sometimes people make mistakes no need to get so angry. You can remind the next time you drop a clanger ( although by the sounds of it I assume you never do)

I did this with my VW Golf once. Fortunately it was in an indoor car park so nothing got wet and surprisingly nothing was stolen (there was £10 that anyone could have reached in and taken). So not as bad as your wet bottom but my point is that it’s easier to do than you might think!!

Don't blame your DH. This happens to our car sometimes. We've taken t back to them and they can't seem to work out what happens or why. something about radio signals/pressure or something. It happened the other night for the first time in ages and thank god it didn't rain but we're still struggling with condensation on the inside of the windows, especially the windscreen.
