Burgos mum gets Granada taxi driver to wake up son to stop him missing bus
28 December 2018 @ 17:16

A PANICKED mum called a taxi to wake up her son in Granada so he did not miss his bus to the family home in Burgos for Christmas.

Angélica González gave the youngster, a sixth-form student in the Andalucía city, a wake-up call at 06.30 on Christmas Eve to make sure he caught the coach at 08.00, but after phoning constantly for 45 minutes, was unable to rouse him.

In desperation and in a flash of inspiration, Angélica rang Tele-Radio Taxi Granada for help.

At first, the operator said there was ‘nothing they could do’, but seeing how distressed the woman was, finally agreed to her plan – to send a taxi round to the boy’s address on the C/ Acera del Darro (pictured) and get the driver to ring the bell until her son woke up.

By leaning on the doorbell non-stop until he got an answer, the idea worked and the teen saw his mum’s missed calls, flung on his clothes in the half-hour he had left before the coach left, and legged it to the station.

He just made it onto the bus to the Castilla y León city where his family lives, meaning he was able to join them for the traditional Christmas Eve dinner and present-unwrapping.
