Dude! Where's my truck?

Before I even clicked on the link, I knew what make and model it would be...

That's funny in the "he's such an idiot" kind of way. It was still moving as he stepped out of it... I personally look at my truck like 5 times before walking away every time I park it...

I always stand next to my truck for a second because I keep my wallet in my radio pocket so I have to reach in and grab it (easier access in case I get pulled over or need to go to an ATM and more comfortable on my soft tushy).

However, when I was 15 and I had just gotten my truck, I drove it to my friends place with my mom in the passenger seat. I left it in 2nd so it wouldn't move, since I was just running in to grab some of my stuff. Like a dirty skank, she slips it out of gear somehow and it starts rolling backwards because I didnt engage the parking break. My friend is at the door and is like "dude, where's your truck going?"

the best part was when he looked around for a second like he was unsure where he parked it.

I have actually been so tired after work. I came home parked the truck in the drive way instead of the garage.
Went to bed got up the next morning, and opened up the door in the kitchen to the garage. stood there wondering where my truck was. The feeling is hard to describe. Just like a empty filling.
