lol see again if the key works. if it doesnt work there is a way to check the starter if you can see it make sure that if it is a manual trans that you put it neutral with the e brake on. if automatic trans just leave it in part turn on the key to the run position. run jumper wire from positive to the small wire on the starter and see if it turns over if it does try the key again and see if it works again

if you have some one there that can turn over the key all you need then is a light tester. hook it to a ground under the car and probe the small wire going into the starter have some one turn the car over and see if the light lights up if so then you might have a ground to engine from the battery problem or bad starter.

i would suggest checking the starter relay and fuses. if thats not the issue start checking wires from the starter up.
