At the end of the day, what is, is. So laugh about it.
I can't easily find what time this is supposed to happen--being in another time zone, I may not be at work and don't want to make the critical mistake of leaving my crowbar at work.
I suggest buying three crowbars. Leave one at home, one at work, and one in your car. That way you're covered. Don't worry if you can't take your crowbar on the plane--there will be a suitably dramatic opportunity to re-arm yourself.
