News: Mood In Car Takes Grim Turn After Dad Misses Exit

It's funny because it's true. From The Onion.


Mood In Car Takes Grim Turn After Dad Misses Exit

LYNNVILLE, IN—The atmosphere inside the Lowery family car became gravely serious Saturday morning immediately after father and driver Chris Lowery, 44, missed the highway exit he was supposed to take, backseat sources confirmed.

“Well, we missed the exit,” Lowery said in a terse tone of voice that, within seconds, reportedly reversed the genial mood that had characterized the trip up until that moment, and cast a dire pall felt by everyone in the automobile. 

“We missed the goddamn exit.”

“Christ,” he added, gripping the steering wheel tighter and sitting forward in his seat.

Sources indicated that the realization immediately halted all conversation and prompted Lowery to curtly switch the radio off, which left behind a tense silence punctuated only by the erratic palpitation of the car’s wheels as they rolled across irregularities in the pavement.

“I told you to watch out for it,” Lowery said after some time, addressing his wife. “Karen, didn’t I tell you to watch out for the exit?”

After her husband tersely dismissed her suggestion that perhaps he should have been paying more attention to the road, the atmosphere in the car became even more grim, witnesses reported, and Karen Lowery stopped talking altogether and began looking down at her phone.

  1. Ahahaha! I love this. Just the title of this made me laugh, and it got better and better from there. I've been on several road trips that felt exactly like this. Heaven forbid you come across a detour or road construction along the way too! :D

  2. I agree with the wife. He should've been paying more attention. I usually fall asleep 5 minutes after I get in the passenger's seat.

  3. I'm usually asleep too, or laughing at something on my phone. The hubs is on his own!
