This sort of reminds us of an episode of CHiPs where a kid gets accidentally kidnapped when someone steals a car, except this is much funnier. A Spokane man left his kids locked in his 1996 Ford Explorer momentarily while he ran in for doughnuts, which is a good reason to abandon kids. It apparently takes dad a while to order, because in that time a quick handed repo man was able to tow the car away with the kids inside.

Dad did the right thing by calling the cops right away, which is how he found out that the repo driver also called the police when he realized he'd towed away a couple of tots. So let this be a lesson to all the bad dads out there: if you're afraid your car is going to get repossessed don't leave the kids in it while you get your snack on. [AP via Seattle Times]
