A family were heading to the mother’s family home for a small vacation. Her family lived in the countryside, so they got on the bus. As they reached the foot of the mountain, suddenly the child started to complain. “I’m hungry!” They got off at the next stop and dropped by a nearby cafe to eat.
After they were done eating, the family glanced up at the TV. The bus they were just on had been involved in an accident, crushed by falling rocks. Everyone inside had died.
