Man’s greatest moment comes as he falls asleep at the wheel of his car

A man who fell asleep at a petrol station is celebrating his dream of becoming a professional driver by getting in his car and getting his day’s work done.

The man, who asked to remain anonymous, had been watching the sun set when he started to get worried about his vision and thought about trying to get home from work before the sun rose.

“It’s a bit like the movie ‘Star Wars’ where Darth Vader goes through the door of the Empire building, gets out of the door, and suddenly everything goes dark and dark,” he said.

“So I thought, I could do that and make it work.”

So the man went about his usual day-to-day chores, then set off for the petrol station, where he bought his first car.

“I wanted to be able to drive on the road for a few hours and get home,” he told News Corp.

“There’s always a chance you could end up on the side of the road in the dark.”

But then you go into your car, you plug in your car and it’s the same as it was at the petrol store.

“He didn’t get the chance to go home that day and it was the first time in his life he had lost his life while driving.”

A lot of times I’m thinking about the car and then I go back to the petrol shop and I’m sitting in the car, trying to figure out what I’m going to do,” he added.”

When I get home I get back into the car to go back and do it.

“Then I’m driving home and I get out and there’s this really bright light in the back window and I’ve got this huge smile on my face.”

The only thing I can think of is: ‘Wow, that was good’.
