While on a road trip,we stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing our meal, we left the restaurant, and resumed our trip.
When leaving, Mom unknowingly left her reading glasses on the table, and she didn’t miss them until they had been driving about forty minutes. By then they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around, in order to return to the restaurant to retrieve her glasses.
Dad fussed and complained, and scolded Mom relentlessly during the entire return drive. To Mom’s relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant.
As she got out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, Dad yelled to her, “While you’re in there, you might as well get my hat and the credit card.”
