Dad Freaks Over Toddler Puking In Car, What Happens Next is Epic

We’ve all been there. In the middle of a car trip, we hear the noise coming from the back seat of the car. Before we have enough time to pull over or even throw a trash bag in the back, puke is everwhere. And for those of us that have children that get car sick no matter how long we are in the car, you’ve been there far too many times. 

A story is going viral on Facebook after a dad shares his hiliarious and epic story of his toddler puking in the car. Ben Patterson texted his wife when their son puked in the car and he shared the entire thing on social media. 

Patterson’s Facebook post explains that his wife was going out with friends so he met up with her to switch cars and take the kids. On his way home their son threw up in the car. What happened after that is nothing short of amazing. 



Patterson texts a photo of their son with vomit all over him to his wife with these words:

So this just happened

I just pulled over and am trying not to throw up myself

Call me

While Patterson waited for a response from his wife, he got nothing. 

“I just threw up trying to clean him up,” Patterson admitted in a text message.It smells SO BAD.” 

But what we now know about Patterson is that he has a very strong gag reflex to vomit. 

“I seriously don’t know what to do, I’m barfing every time I try to clean him up,” he text his wife again. “I’m puking on some lady’s lawn in Burlingame and she comes out to ask me if I’m drunk while driving the kids.” 

Apparently his gag reflex is so bad that it makes him look drunk. 

“I’m trying to explain that I’m a sympathetic vomiter and can’t handle the smell,” he continues in text to his wife who has yet to respond. “This is so bad.”

And then it happened.

“Aaaaand now the cops showed up,” he texted again. “Aaaaand now a breathalyzer. YOU OWE ME SO BIG.”

But there is good news to the story, he passed the breathalyzer. 

Here are the rest of the hilarious texts to Patterson’s wife who didn’t respond throughout the entire ordeal.

meanwhile Declan continues to barf,



At least I passed the breathalyzer

Trying to drive home with the windows down and breathing through my shirt


We want to thank Patterson for sharing his very real parenting moment. To be honest, it could happen to any of us. And for that, we salute you for sharing the realness in parenting.
