My favorite is that no one answered their phone but they responded to Facebook.

How do you travel 100 miles without realizing you left somebody behind?
 
2012-06-26 10:32:01 AM  
Accidentally.

*wink*

...while ignoring ALL 6 CELL PHONES the dude tried to call?

Yeah, they ditched him.

Anyone else notice the stupidest stories lately all have something to do with Facebook?
 
2012-06-26 10:39:51 AM  
You don't "accidentally" leave someone behind and ignore all phone calls for help. They only turned around because he posted on Facebook and didn't want to upset the rest of their family/friends.
 
2012-06-26 10:40:08 AM  
Man that guy must have been a complete tool.

100 miles? 2 hours? No WAY they "didn't notice" he wasn't there.

Anyone else tired of dad? Yeah? Fcuck it. Let's just leave him here. He'll never find his way back home.

Nothing about this story makes sense. They were all in a van. How can you not notice your dad is not in the van for 100 miles? How can 6 cell phones all ringing in the van not be heard? You might say "Maybe there was no coverage?". Yes, there was coverage, because he reached them on Facebook. This story is full of shenanigans.

$10 says this family is gunning for a reality show, and this was a sad, poorly thought-out publicity stunt.

Not only did they not answer the 6 cell phones, they got sick of him calling and turned his off, sending calls straight to voicemail.
 
2012-06-26 11:17:00 AM  
they should make this into a movie. maybe have the person left behind be a child instead of an adult, but not too young. like 11 or 12.
 
2012-06-26 01:00:24 PM  
Ha, his asshole family wont answer the phone but will reply to facebook. That's family vacation movie material there.

Anyone else think he looks like a young Ahmadinejad?
 
2012-06-26 01:02:12 PM  
Who answers calls from unknown numbers? Nobody. The kids have probably been instructed not to. The adults know it's almost always nothing important.
Who checks texts & facebook when in a car and not driving? Bored passengers of course.

Those parts make sense to me.

Not doing a headcount when hitting the road? How many cars were involved in this trip? Easy and basic mistake if more than 1 car (everyone assumes the missing person is in another car). This part is stupid, but it happens.

One car? Missing a parent? Asinine.

He kind of looks like Ahmedinajad's long lost brother.

nice family, Joe Dirt.
 
2012-06-26 01:05:50 PM  
How stupid are you when you don't notice that one of the people you've traveled with in a van is not there when you leave? How many farking people are in the van?

Never understood people who travel and don't make a quick head count before leaving anywhere.

Dude, that was your perfect opportunity to escape from your family.

/would've ran off and assumed a new identity
 
2012-06-26 01:06:25 PM  
Lighten up folks, this could totally happen. Whenever my ex-wife and I would go on vacation she would "accidently" think I was taking a nap in the backseat and get our vacation spot before realizing I wasn't in the car. I met a lot really interesting people on the Greyhound rides...

Simple mistakes can happen to anyone, even a dozen or so times... Trust me, I speak from experience.

Does anyone know where Aunt Edna got off to?
 
2012-06-26 01:12:54 PM  
There would be a lot of biatch slapping goin' on when they finally got back to pick me up. A god damn lot of biatch slapping! And if I found my phone turned off or muted? Oooh! There would be more than a few people wishing they hadn't got up that morning.

FTFA - The man says his family left him after they stopped in Memphis to eat and fill up the gas tank. He says he went inside to get his change for the gas, but his family thought he was already loaded up, and too off.


I wonder what kind of vehicle the family was driving that they wouldn't notice someone was missing before they "too off?" Even in a Winnebago, someone should've noticed SOMETHING.

This story would make more sense if the family had took off on foot, walked for 100 miles, and realized that dad was probably still back at the station sitting in the van. Possible explanations for story as is:

Publicity stunt on purpose
Joke on dad, on purpose
Texans (the sun/heat does something to the brain)

Slow news day? Hay Zeus.
 
2012-06-26 01:21:31 PM  
CSB and all, but this happened to me. Dad and I returned from a trip to Chicago. I was to get the checked bags, while he went to retrieve the car. Long story short, I waited forever in the pick up area, he got the car and drove home. He figured it out when he couldn't find his bag in the car when he got home.
 
2012-06-26 01:21:55 PM  
We forgot dad again.

Actually, as someone who has traveled with highly distracted people glued to their smart phones, I can see this happening.
 
2012-06-26 01:23:00 PM  
Now, the dad says the entire incident was simply a huge mistake.

Yeah.

Get yourself a new family, before it's too late.
