The Kennebunkport Car Mix-Up

Not quite unique enough to make it into our "Fate or Coincidence" series, I'd be remiss not to note the recent mix-up a Kennebunkport-area man made when he went to pick-up his son's car from a school parking lot recently:

The unidentified man went to the school parking lot and picked-up his son's car as instructed. Meanwhile, his wife was listening to the police scanner when she heard a report for area police to be on the lookout for a white 1998 Volvo Model 70 sedan. As it turns out, there were two, apparently identical, white 1998 Volvo, Model 70 sedans - and both had keys wherever the man's son had told him to look!

She phoned the husband and asked simply, "Are you sure you took the right car?"

Of course, the vehicle was returned to its rightful owner, no charges were filed, and the story made the local news. And, now, The OddBlog!

Enjoy your 15 minutes, unidentified, absent-minded, Kennebunkport father of a white Volvo-owning son! You earned it.
