"MAYBE WE SHOULD ASK FOR DIRECTIONS"

Wow what some people are thinking? I still have trouble finding my way home with that stupid lady on the GPS yelling at me. It is the same as my wife and kids.

My sister and her husband ran their brand new Ford Explorer into a 4 foot deep puddle. They THOUGHT they could make it. Of course, they were also on their way home from the Boston Beer Festival.

You know you're in trouble when the tow truck driver has to DIVE under the water to attach the winch to your car.

He pulled them out about 6 feet to dry land. Charged them $300. While they waited for AAA, they went into a bar and drank.

NOT the brightest bulbs.

This is clearly an example of technology playing pranks on humans. The Sat-Nav intelligence is smarter than we are, to wit: "This month motorists were sent to the edge of a 100ft drop on an unclassified road at Crackpot in North Yorkshire."

HAL has returned!

Punkin, they were obviously confident that they would be driving nowhere else that day. ;)

Actually, Guin, once the car was successfully towed, they still had to get home. So they called a cab to take them to Logan Airport where they - wait for it - RENTED A CAR AND DROVE HOME.

Oh....the car was totaled. The insurance company got them another new one. About two weeks later, they came home with Chinese take-out, parked the car out front and went inside to eat. Her hubby remembered he'd left something in the car and went outside. 20 seconds later he walked back in dazed and confused - in the half minute since they'd parked the car, the tree they parked it under fell over and split the car in half.

NO KIDDING.

Best line:
"This month motorists were sent to the edge of a 100ft drop on an unclassified road at Crackpot in North Yorkshire."

Is this where the cracks in the crackpots come from??? That 100 ft. drop will get ya every time.
