High Hopes in the Dark

If you’ve lived in your house for several years, then you’re confident about circumventing tables and chairs in the dark. Eventually, when our confidence outgrows our skill, we lose our bearings and bump into things. In the dark, we think we’re headed in the right direction, but sooner or later we learn otherwise. Listen to what these folks did once they lost their bearings:

When darkness falls and we don’t know which way to turn, who we call depends on who we think will provide help. Initially, it seemed like the folks in the video were prank- calling for help, and it sounded like help might not arrive. Their complaints about a baby and mosquitoes saved them from an uncomfortable evening under the stars. Who do you call when you’re feeling lost and/or in the dark, and how much convincing do you need to give before you’re convinced help will arrive?
