A German had a lot of grovelling to do after accidentally leaving his new wife at a petrol station for two hours - on the way home from their honeymoon.
The couple were heading home to Berlin from their holiday in France when the man pulled over at a petrol station near the town of Bad Hersfeld on Thursday, reports news.com.au.
The man's wife had been asleep in the back but, unbeknownst to her husband, got up to use the toilet.
Unfortunately, reports the Mirror, the man did not know she had left the car, and drove off without her - only realising she was gone two and a half hours later.
Upon realising the error of his ways, the man called the police, who informed him that his wife was waiting patiently for him.
According to the Metro, the 33-year-old told radio station FFH: "My first reaction was: is he stupid?'
"I had no money and no telephone with me."
