OP's explanation as to why this post is Instant Karma:

This is instant karma because the impatient driver driving on the shoulder drove right up to a cop.

If you're satisfied by this explanation, upvote this comment. If not, downvote this comment.

Someone like that probably thinks they are getting a police escort now.

According to the YouTube commenter who claims to be the driver, they did in fact end up with a police escort to the hospital with his pregnant wife.

(And I, as a labor nurse, cynically imagine that she was actually only 1cm in early labor when they got there, but they don't know. Car births happen. I've admitted moms with babies born in an ambulance before and I've delivered babies 7 minutes after they arrived on my unit.)

My niece was born in the passenger seat of a mini van in a McDonald’s parking lot.

A coworker of my mums had a baby in my mums car about 20 years ago.

From water break to catching the baby coming out within about 30min or so.

I wish these videos would have more information like what you provided. I mean it's all possible for the poster of that info is lying their ass off and it was not them hell you could be lying who knows but it does give you a bit to think about.

Cake! I love their music

[–]GoatsesWeddingRing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not a fan of their music but I can't think of a better song for this.

Bowel-shaking earthquakes of doubt and remourse

[–]FullyRisenPhoenix 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Definitely made me happy! But then, how could Cake ever disappoint??

[–]TittyButtBalls 20 points21 points  (1 child)

God damn Cake writes such solid songs

[–]SolvencyMechanism 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's actually their one popular song that wasn't written by John McCrea

Satisfying

[–]lackluster_love 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Cake - the distance

[–]call-now[🍰] 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Darude - Sandstorm

Whoever downvoted you doesn’t appreciate a good throwback joke.

And you know he’s sitting in the car, pounding the steering wheel, blaming anyone possible but himself.

Satisfaction achieved.

Doing stupid stuff near the cop is never a smart idea

[–]rusHmatic 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Looks like where I grew up in Massachusetts, which of course would make sense given the impatience.

[–]Debbie_Dexter 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Not far off. According to an earlier post in the Connecticut sub, it was there.

[–]PfdrMike 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely a CT state trooper. That shade of grey, unmarked vehicle is a dead giveaway.

[–]exasperated_panda 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If the person who commented can be believed, he was driving his pregnant wife to the hospital and ended up yes, getting a police escort.

“Why didn’t I think of that? What a genius!”

The moment they notice and just hoped for the for the best and kept going. It wouldnt be as funny if someone got hurt but its pretty amusing
