It’s probably an idea that’s often been contemplated but one couple actually managed to do it. Leaving mother-in-law behind.
Why the couple decided to take mother-in-law on holiday to France in the first place is anyone’s guess, but they did. Or nearly did.
Halfway across the English Channel, the couple suddenly realised that they had left mother-in-law behind, sitting in their car in the car park. They alerted the Port Authority and the 70 year old woman was located, still sitting in the car in the Dover multi-storey car park. The woman was plied with tea until the family returned a few hours later.
