One of our cars has it. The routine goes like this.

Missus picks up key, uses the car and when she returns locks the car using the keyless function. Forgets key is in her handbag.
Next trip, she can't find the main key (still in her handbag) and uses the spare key. When she returns, she again locks the car using the keyless function and leaves the key in her handbag.
Next trip, she can't find any of the keys because she has forgotten they are buried in the depths of her handbags and takes one of our other cars.
While she is out I want to use the car, but can't, because she has all the f#&@%g keys!
