Drunk Driving

A family of four (i.e., Mom, Dad, Son, Daughter) was leaving a wedding reception when Mom noticed that Dad had a little too much to drink. She suggested that she drive home. Dad, in  no uncertain tones, insisted that he was in control and that was that! She did not want to embarrass him, or argue in front of the children, so away they went; Dad and Mom in the front seat, their teenage Son (deep in I-Phone land) and toddler Daughter (sound asleep) in the back seat. Twenty minutes into the trip Dad fell asleep, ran a red light, and was T-Boned by a speeding ambulance that was transporting an accident victim to a hospital. THERE WERE NO SURVIVORS!
