Tim Douglas, 47, ruined his family dinner last Sunday after he accidentally pulled in behind a parked car instead of getting into the right turn lane at the intersection of Washington and First Street. Douglas, blissfully unaware that he was ruining the entire day for those that depended on him, waited behind the parked car for nearly four hours. Douglas spent the time occasionally muttering things like “man, this is taking a long time” and “Monday traffic here is always really bad,” and singing the chorus of “Don’t Stop Believing” to himself repeatedly. After realizing his mistake, Douglas chuckled to himself and pulled back into traffic.

“I’m not sure what happened,” said Tim’s wife. “He said he would be home at 8 p.m. and came home at midnight. I asked him where he was and he said he was stuck in traffic, but he only works a few blocks away. We were supposed to go out to a fancy dinner at 8:30 to celebrate our son’s participation award from his Little League team, and instead our son just ate a stale Beef and Cheddar alone in an Arby’s and cried. I hope he’s happy.”
