Lack of trunk space panics driver

In panic, time stops: past, present and future exist as a single overwhelming force. You then, perversely, want time to appear to run forwards because the ‘future’ is the only place you can see an escape from this intolerable overload of feeling. But at such moments time doesn’t move.”― Sebastian Faulks, Engleby

Have you ever misjudged the exact amount of trunk space your trusted family vehicle actually offers and made this jarring discovery after you have purchased an item or items that somehow refuse to fit easily into your car? The gentlemen in this scenario carefully removed their cache of bottles and cans from the vehicle only to discover that the depot was closed for the day. Reality then bit them on the butt as they attempted to put the items back into the car. They were able to do this after much wrangling and perspiring. — gc.
