The adult that let this kid do this should be put on probation of some kind.

The investigation should also be reasonable. What motivates 6 year olds? Could the Applebees waitresses offered this kid free cookies on a previous visit if he drove a car up to the restaurant? Was someone in the kitchen planning to steal the car? Perhaps kidnap the child?

It is fortunate that nobody got hurt this time.

Applebee's probably puts something in their chicken nuggets to make kids do things like that. :)

This story may sound cute, but there is a real problem here. Why was the kid so hungry that he took the car keys? As an adult, the grandmother should have not left her keys in a place the kid could get to. And Nancy Hollis would be singing a different tune if one of her 5 kids (she can't watch every minute) was run over by this 6 year old.
This is a serious issue and shouldn't be joked about.

So, you're telling us that you spent THREE HOURS trying to get your then three year old child to open a locked door?

If that were my child (but it wouldn't be MY child b/c we have keyless entry), I would have broken a window, broken down the door, etc. after the first ten minutes.

How can anyone in their right mind leave a three year old alone in the house for three hours w/o taking extraordinary action to get inside is beyond me.

Did you even have enough sense to call the fire department and/or police?
