Man Stops To Pee And Drives 100 Miles Before He Realized He Left His Wife Behind

If you’ve ever been on a road trip, you undoubtedly have experienced not wanting to stop. It seems like you are so focused on the road ahead of you that you just don’t want to break the trend and perhaps waste time.

There going to be times when you are driving, however, and nature comes calling. When that happens, you pull over to relieve nature at a rest stop or gas station, and then you are back on your way again.

That is what happened when a couple in Thailand was traveling for the holidays to be with family. Unfortunately, the husband finished with his Pee break and then took off in the truck, leaving his wife behind without knowing it.

This was a tragic situation on more than one level. Fortunately, nobody was hurt but I’m sure that there was a very serious discussion that happened after they were able to get back together again.

It all started when the husband left his wife along the side of the road. She then had to walk 12.5 miles in the middle of the night in order to get help.

55-year-old Boontom Chaimoon is the husband who made this error, and we are pretty sure that he is probably still paying for it. When his wife, 49-year-old Amnuay Chaimoon, and he were separated on the drive, it was around 3 AM in the morning.

He had pulled over in his Isuzu pickup truck to relieve nature, and his wife apparently wondered why he didn’t stop at a gas station. After all, she had to ease nature as well so she decided to go into the bushes to get some privacy.

By the time she got back to the vehicle, it was gone and her husband was gone with it. She didn’t have her cell phone on her because she had left it in the car and she decided that walking 12.5 miles was better than waiting in the middle of the night along side the road.

Once she reached an area where she could make a call, she had another difficulty because she didn’t have his number. She tried calling her own phone 20 times trying to get his attention, but he didn’t answer it.

She then tried to contact other relatives through the authorities while he continued to drive to the actual destination, 99 miles away. He didn’t even realize that he had left his wife along the side of the road until 8 AM in the morning.

Immediately, he turned around and retraced his route and was eventually reunited with his wife. He thought that she was sleeping in the backseat, or at least that’s what he said.

Fortunately, she was good-natured about the incident. She forgave him and they continued on with their 27 years of happy marriage and decided they would not fight over the situation.

This is a funny story, but I guess it’s also a lesson for all of us.
