My husband and I are on a year long honeymoon and currently on a month long road trip through Australia. We only have a 2WD van. On our second day we reached our campsite and the road was extremely sandy and rocky. I told him to just park and he insisted on driving further in - two minutes later we were stuck. Three men came with shovels to help dig us out for the next two hours. I tried helping with a soup ladle since we didn’t even have a shovel packed (pro tip: must pack shovel).
Instead of getting mad for the next 24 hours as I would usually do, I just went with it and learned a lot about getting a car out of a hole! Everyone was also in good spirits and happy to help us. I fed our camping neighbors corn on the cob when they took breaks from digging and when we finally got out hours later, we brought a bottle of wine and our dinner to our neighboring campers and had a blast eating and drinking together.
The next day my husband out of the blue mentioned at how he noticed I didn’t give him a million “I told you so’s” and how he appreciated it and thanked me. I honestly wasn’t even sure he noticed but happy he did!!! I figured he had already learned his lesson and it wouldn’t help for me to be aggro the entire time making him feel bad and it all worked out in the end!
