Let's go for a walk

Today, my friend and I were getting picked up by his dad after a carnival. As I put my stuff in the back of the car and shut the door to walk around to get in the other side, his dad drove off, thinking I was in the car, leaving me to walk up their hill. It was midnight and I ended up lost. FML

How does the friend not say anything? And why did you start walking off instead of staying in the same place. Once they realize that you're gone I'm sure they would go back to the carnival.

Show it anyway

But three lefts make a right...

"Marco"- "pollo"

Polo* Pollo means chicken and I don't think that's what you meant

"chicken" -marco

I thought this was a reference to Esteban from the suite life of Zack and Cody, haha, but a typo makes a little more sense

My bad didn't proof read!

That sucks. Hope your friends dad apologized you after.

Considering it was midnight his friend might have closed his eyes to go to sleep right away in the car, and to add to that he was probably in the front seat, because if the dad assumed OP had gotten on one side in the back, but OP was really going for the other side in the back, then it's likely that both seats in the back were still available, meaning OP's friend must have taken the front seat. Being in the front seat it's understandable that he wouldn't have noticed OP not being in the car.

Dude you are the real PI

Couldn't you have borrowed someone elses phone?

...it was midnight, and i think when he said he was lost meant there wasn't really anyone there

He was leaving a carnival, even if he was the last guest there, there would have been staff around, unless they were there well past closing.

Most people don't let strangers borrow their car...

18, I'm sorry, I don't follow. Ae were talking about borrowing a phone, not a car.

I don't know about anybody else, but I haven't memorized a phone number (except my own) in at least a decade. Even if I borrowed a stranger's phone, I wouldn't even know what number to call.

Well #26, OP could always dial 911. Also, pro tip: Is always good to have a couple of numbers memorized for emergencies anyways.

I don't think dialing 911 is a good idea. "911, what's your emergency?" "Hi, I need a ride home."

#32, when OP would call the police, he would have to clarify that his situation is not an emergency, but that he is lost and it is midnight. I've had to call the police once before for something similar and as long as you clarify that it's not an absolute emergency, they are more than happy to help.

#35, no you don't call 9-1-1 unless it's an emergency. Google your local police non-emergency number. You can be arrested for misuse of 9-1-1. And being lost isn't even sort of an emergency.

Easy can turn to be real emergency.

I'm surprised neither he nor your friend noticed after a second or two at most.

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie.... You've been abandoned in the middle of no where at midnight. Chin up, OP.

Must not be a good friend if he didn't notice you weren't in the car.

Why didn't your friend say anything? And how did you get lost walking up a hill?

About halfway up the hill the OP notice something strange at the top of the hill but he continued on. What he didn't know is that up that was a different dimension. A dimension known simply as the twilight zone.

Did you hitchhike?
