All parents have been there and can recount with horror the vomit stories of their young children.

But a Northern California man posted some screenshots of texts he sent to his wife after their young child vomited in their vehicle.

Ben Patterson’s Facebook post about the “unfortunate hilarity” that ensued has been liked more than 70,000 times and shared more than 120,000 times.

It started when Patterson said he met up with his wife, Stephanie, to switch vehicles so she could go out with friends and he could take the kids home.

On the drive, their son, Declan, threw up in the car. Patterson took a photo and sent it to his wife, who didn’t respond.

So this just happened

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

Call me

I just threw up trying to clean him up

It smells SO BAD

Things continued to go downhill for Patterson. He stopped on the side of the road in front of a woman’s home.

After witnessing Patterson vomiting, she came out to accuse him of drunk driving with the children in the vehicle and called police.

I seriously don’t know what to do, I’m barfing every time I try to clean him up

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

I’m trying to explain that I’m a sympathetic vomiter and can’t handle the smell

This is so bad

Aaaaand now the cops showed up

Aaaaand now a breathalyzer

YOU OWE ME SO BIG

Patterson passed the Breathalyzer and went home with his still-vomiting son.

meanwhile Declan continues to barf

WHAT DID HE EAT BECAUSE IT SMELLS LIKE ROTTING WHALE BLUBBER

ANSWER YOUR PHONE!!!!!

At least I passed the breathalyzer

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