Lost Car Keys

I've never understood how things work gears turn and cranks crank circuits connecting and forming a link all of this stuff is out of my reach its all so confusing, fuses and plugs that plug into sockets and HUDS that have numbers and belts that have notches motors that whirr and shake so profusely only do more to stump and confuse me I'm not at all mechanically inclined trust me I know, I've tried many times I can't understand battery's without power have to charge for almost a whole half an hour drivetrain won't drive, forward or reverse transmission whats that, this sticks stuck in first the bumpers don't bump and the flashers won't flash speedometer and fuel don't work on the dash there are spots under the hood for the fluids it takes and I don't understand how a carburetor.. carburates? mufflers to muffle the sounds that it makes drive shaft to control the turns that you take key to ignition ignition to starter starter to the whatever the hell that you call er' it's all so disturbing, it bothers me bunches gas pedals, brake pedals, what are these clutches automatic and manual drives drive me crazy has anyone checked the oil here lately the tires have tread to catch on the ground hydraulics to make you go up and go down there are switches and knobs that serve no functions or jobs there's gearboxes, spark plugs, fuel tanks and handbrakes and I couldn't even tell you which one keeps the car in place how it all works is way beyond me I have a hard enough time just finding my keys
