**Urban Legend**

I was watching a TV program I think called “Urban Legends Revealed” when they told about someone leaving their spouse while traveling. The man was driving a motor home while the Mrs.’s was napping in the bed. He pulled off of the road for a short break and she thought she had reached her destination. While she was trying to focus her eyes after stepping outside in the bright sun and while in her night time gown, he drove off leaving her stranded. She caught a ride with a biker dressed in leather and caught up with her hubby in the motor home who was totally un-aware that the dilemma had un-folded.

They couldn’t say for certain this actually happened but it’s quite humorous to say the least.

So what’s you point Silvertwinky? “You ask.”

They showed several Airstreams in the show comparing RV’s to the RV’s of today. Ahh….. What a beautiful sight it was!

Well being a wife I'm not too fond of these stories but much to my regret I have to say that it is true!

This was on all our national papers and created lots of debates:

In August 1999 an Italian man who was travelling south with his wife for a long summer vacation, with car fully packed and trailer (sob) hitched in the back, stopped at a gas station to get gas, use the facilities and buy the usual junk. Well, when he was done he simply got back in the car and drove off. When 500km later he got to the toll booth he turned round to ask his wife for his wallet and...GOSH! he realized he'd forgotten her at the gas station!!

It's not just wives

My nephew's wife is one of 9 kids. The few times they went on vacation, they had a method for making sure they had all the kids. While at the gas station (about the only place they stopped) the adults would purchase 9 "somethings" (a something being a cookie, brownie, etc.)

If there was an extra something, they were short a kid. One time there was an extra something, but seeing as how the kids never knew the purpose of the somethings an older sibling quietly ate TWO somethings.

It was HOURS before they realized that they'd left a kid behind. As Kristi tells it, it took a state trooper pulling them over and letting them know.

My very favorite website (ok, after this one), is Snopes where they debunk or confirm urban legends, or sometimes just explain what purpose they serve. If you put RV into the search box at the top of the Snopes page you'll get their take on this legend, as well as several other popular RV stories, like the crooks siphoning gas and getting the black tank instead.
