My mom did something similar to me as a kid and to this day she still thinks to this day it was okay. I missed my bus at school one day (I was a 4.0 student and all around good kid).

I called her and asked her to pick me up (she was about 3 miles away at her school where she taught 5th grade). After screaming and cussing at me, she told me she wasn't going to pick me up and that if I didn't want to walk the 30 miles home, I needed to walk the 3 miles to her school before she left.

So I walked... Through 100+ degree heat. Through some of the worst ghetto you can imagine. 2.5 miles into it someone drives up behind me (I had already ducked a few pedos and criminals on my way there). I was scared... Thank God it was my JROTC instructor.

He wanted to know why I was walking through that area (he had to drive that way on his way home). I told him, so he offered me a ride. I told him my mom would freak out if she saw him drop me off and that I'd just walk the rest of the way. He insisted and told me to get in. He dropped me off a block from her school (so she wouldn't see) and told me she shouldn't have made me walk through that neighborhood as it was dangerous.

He offered to "have a talk with her", but I told him that would just make my life worse, and I thanked him for the ride. He told me if that ever happened again to just give him a call and gave me his number.

He died a few years later of a heart attack. The kids at my school gave him a hard time about the way he looked (called him Popeye) and were generally asses to him unless they knew him well -they probably drove him to an early grave. -He was a kind hearted, good man, and a great role model.

My mom's still alive to this day.
