She drove around block and csme back,not a word was sead on rest of trip. She would proubly be put in jail now!!! Mike
My wife would NOT have been there when the car returned! She probably would have started hitch-hiking.
About 20 years ago my wife (#2) and I went to her mothers house for dinner and during the visit they both started in on me, first for one thing and then another, after awhile I couldn't take any more so I just went out to my truck and went home. Once at home, I packed all her stuff in plastic bags and put them in the rear of the pickup bed wrapped up with a large blue tarp with a rope tied to it. I drove back to MIL's house and drove up on lawn, tied the rope to a tree and drove off. Best thing I ever did, except for marrying #3 (the redhead).
Scary I had to read this twice. My first read was to fast as I began to think you wrapped your "wife" in a blue tarp and tied her to something ! I feared I was hearing a morbid story of one of your wife's final moments. I feared my thread had gone in a terrible direction of death and tradgy. Now I wonder what you did with first wife? Lol. Ok one last question. Why did you bother to tie it to the tree ?
My parents were camping in a pop-up with my brothers, sister, and brother's friend, George. They got all loaded up to head home and no George. The only reason that they noticed he was missing was that he talked non-stop and was suspiciously quiet. He was in the cranked down pop-up. Mom had to convince Dad to crank it back up and let him out for the trip home.

Many years ago when I was a wee lad our usual weekend camping trip involved my mom and dad, our cabover camper and our boat. The drill was to find a camp and set our stuff out and then take the boat to the ramp a couple miles down the road, dad would take the boat around to campground and mom would drive camper back to the campsite.
Normally I would hop out, help dad launch and then go with him. For some reason there was a delay in my action so as I headed down to the water he is already slowly heading out and doesn't hear me yelling. Oh well, I will have to ride back wtih mom. I turn to watch the camper and boat trailer disappearing around the bend. I wasn't worried but wasn't smart. I knew where the campsite was but decided to follow the winding shoreline back to camp.
I was glad they got a laugh out of it.
A little off the thread, but this reminds me of a joke I heard one time. "A man was being chased by the hiway patrol and it took a while to get him to stop. When asked why he wouldn't stop, he told the officer, "Well, a few years ago, my wife ran off with one of you guys, and I didn't want to stop because I thought you were trying to bring her back".
