I said no...but she did it anyway!

I was traveling around France with my mom and two brothers and sister. My dad had some work in France, so we traveled while he stayed at work.

Now my moms a bit crazy, and does stupid things at times. This was one of those times...
...where her young kids even knew it was a bad idea.

We were driving for ages, and after getting lost and it getting pitch black outside, my mom decided to take a shortcut. It was the dead of winter, 11:00 at night, and no one was around.

Mom decided she would move the "do not enter, road blocked off" sign and all the barriers out of the way, so she could get the car through and take this "short cut".

And long story short, as we were driving, the road started to disappear with snow, and soon there was a small cliff to one side, and the whole right lane was gone from snow.. we had no idea where we were, and we got to a point where there was so much snow ahead, we had to turn back...

...but there was no way we could turn around, as the road was so narrow. We had to back out the whole way. We were all scared to death, and mom thought it was funny...Until it started snowing!

We finally arrived home, hours later, scared to death and never wanting to get into a car again with mom!!
