LRA, you reminded me of a similar story. After a pretty bad car crash many years ago (I flipped my car on its top in the middle of the road), I was at home recuperating, more emotionally shaken than actually injured. My dad was going into town and wanted to know if I wanted him to rent me a couple of movies to watch.
"Any requests?" he said.
"Something without any car crashes!" I said.
He brought home two movies, and the first was "U.S. Marshals", the sequel to "The Fugitive" starring Tommy Lee Jones. In the first 10 minutes of the movie, an armored bank car ends up flipped over on its top in the middle of the road.
Oopsie for him.
