One time when my mother was growing up they went on a family camping trip. They were driving from western Ohio into Michigan.
One hour into the trip, her father realized that he had left the tent stakes at home. This was before camping supplies were at every Walmart. So he had to go back home to get the stakes. They were towing their boat, and her father didn’t want to drive the boat all the way back.
Her father pulled into a department store’s parking lot, unhooked the boat, left my mom and her mom (my grandmother) with the boat, and raced home for the tent stakes.
