comment What would “I forgot my keys” mean in this situation?
I think most people would be far more likely to say "I forgot my keys" if they forgot their keys. The act of forgetting took place in the recent/immediate past so there is no need for the present participle.

comment Is addressing a guy as “guy” rude?
I see that this answer has been accepted, but I think it doesn't address the main question, which is whether 'guy' is an acceptable "term of address". Kris' comment does answer this question very well.
