PLANES, CARAVANS AND AUTOMOBILES.



Passenger Ginger McGuire, 38, is suing United Airlines for false imprisonment - for not noticing she was asleep. After napping on a United Express from Washington DC to Philadelphia, the plane was locked up with her still on board. Cleaners discovered her hours later.

A thief who stole a caravan in Blair Athol, Adelaide, Australia, didn't notice an elderly couple were still inside. He abandoned the vehicle after crashing it, but made off with the owner's digital camera.

A couple treated the wife's mum to a day trip to France - but forgot they'd left her in the UK port car park. They only realised on the ferry and had to call police to wait with her while they returned.

I know one of my friend forgot his one year old son in car. He thought his wife took him and his wife thought he. After 5 minute of walk, they figured out and ran back to the car. No harm done but people do make mistakes.

Ha!

One of my mother´s favourite stories is about the time when her two brothers and their wives visited my parents. When it was time to go home, one sister-in-law teased the other one because she almost forgot her knitting.

"What about little Peter who is sleeping upstairs", my mother said to the other one.

I can remember a parent going home from school and leaving her toddler behind! Took her a whole hour to realise.

These are funny. I know the flight attendants always walk back through the plane so I don't see how they could overlook someone sleeping in a seat!

Oh Lordy, all those people probably have abandonment issues, at least now they do!
