Tourist forgets wife at service station, drives for 100 kilometres
A WOMAN was driven to fury after her forgetful husband left her behind at a service station.
The couple, along with their teenage son, had enjoyed a holiday in Brazil and were on a road trip back to Argentina when the mistake happened, according to local media.
The man, only known by his first name of Walter, filled up his car with petrol and then went to the toilet at the service station in the Brazilian area of Passo Fundo, however he failed to notice his wife Claudia was not in the car when he returned.
So he drove off. It was approximately 100km later that he realised she was missing.

Claudia, who had been asleep in the back of the car, had gone in to the shop to buy a snack. Due to bad mobile phone reception, she couldn’t call her family so staff at the service station called police for her and she was taken to the local station until Walter arrived.
Two hours later, he was back and Claudia was not impressed, reportedly kicking the car.
“She was very angry. She was moaning at him for taking so long to realise,” a traffic officer from Passo Fundo, told the UK’s Telegraph.
“There was no physical assault, but she was more upset when she saw the husband.”
