Pees And Queues

Did He Get An Icy Reception?

An Italian driver stopped his car to answer a call of nature - and watched in horror as the vehicle slid over a cliff because he had parked on an ice-covered slope. His wife and children were in the passenger seats - but were unharmed when the car crashed into a tree 50 metres below.

FOOTNOTE: Hitting rock bottom.

Who parks on an ice-covered slope? Maybe there were devious motives involved and he's not so innocent. Mewahhh.

Um, why would you park on an ice covered slope? Hold it in until you're off the ice. There is indeed a god for morons.

Oh my goodness,
there must have been a Legion of Angels out there!

The son of a friend of mine had similar luck when he lost control of his car on an icy mountain road and fell into a deep ravine. His car got caught by a big tree, keeping him suspended several yards over the rocky bottom of the ravine. He was saved from freezing to death because his mother went out looking for him and noticed the skidmarks.

The worst ever nightmare. Glad the family was not hurt but must have been shaken.

Love your title for this!

He would have gotten an icy reception had I been his wife!
