Steve had the habit of leaving things at the store or underneath the shopping cart and even recalls not reaching underneath the cart to retrieve them and arriving home purchaseless. His wife Amy, always checks behind him now to make sure he has his purchases and just where it is he placed them? He thinks his wife is just a nag...until he has to make a sharp right turn driving home and sees their baby in it's car seat go flying off the top of their SUV and bouncing off safely into the back of a pick up truck tansporting mattresses...as Steve YELLS, "OH CRAP!"
