I was 10 years old and had been fishing with my brother and my dad. We left the lake after a long and exhausting day and stopped at a service station (when they still provided real service) and my dad went inside. After a few minutes, I decided that I needed the restroom and went inside to use it and when I came back out, the car was gone...?
My dad made it home, about 20 miles, before he missed me and I sat on the curb waiting for him to return. He did and then asked my why I didn't use the phone to call home? I just figured he come back and get me like he's supposed to, and he did. I was only a little freaked out because, after all, he's my dad and he wouldn't really leave me, right?
