I remember when I was pregnant I had a recurring nightmare that I would go to the supermarket with my kids and accidentally bring home the wrong ones. Now that I actually have kids and see how they like to be attached to my body parts at all times I can see how difficult that would really be.
Except for this grandpa in America. He’s just proven how EASY it is to take home the wrong child. Cause he did just that. Took home the WRONG child!
Joseph Fuller, 65, was given the simple task of task of picking up his six-year-old grandson from his Primary School but failed miserably.
Joseph said he saw who he thought was his grandson coming out of the school gymnasium so he approached him, hugged him and said he was here to take him home early.
The boy apparently said ‘yes.’ Even the school let the granddad take the boy thinking he had the right child.
What’s even more incredible is that once they were in the car, Joseph’s wife didn’t even notice and just handed the boy his Happy Meal to eat.
My question at this point is WHY DIDN”T THE BOY SPEAK UP? Sorry to yell, but if the poor old grandpa couldn’t see very well then isn’t it up to the boy to say ‘hey, who are you?’
The couple only realised they had the wrong boy when they got home and noticed he had a missing tooth.
“He had a tooth missing in the front, and I know my grandson did not have a tooth missing in the front,” Joseph said.
I’m speechless. All I can say is luckily this story turned out okay because if it’s thats how easy it is to pick up a child from school then this scenario could’ve had a very different and sinister ending.
