Teen Is Mortified When Mom Leaves Car In Snowstorm Traffic To Dance To The Backstreet Boys

She loves discovering and sharing viral videos, watching movies with her Muppet-like poodle mix named Cali, and doing the robot whenever possible.

Wendy Gossett, along with rows of other inconvenienced drivers, got stuck in a traffic jam on the interstate for hours upon hours.

During the middle of a Colorado snowstorm. Fun, right?

Wendy, in the car with her 16-year-old, Nathan, was growing antsier and more frustrated by the minute. Nathan was starving and stressed.

Nearly five hours passed and the cars remained at a complete standstill. The mother-son duo was miserable and having the “worst day ever.”

Then the Backstreet Boys came on the radio — and a stir-crazy Wendy decided the song made for the perfect opportunity to break up the monotony.

It was time for an impromptu dance session.

Much to her teenager’s horror, Wendy hopped out of their car and started moving and grooving between the other cars and in front of the windshield. All she wanted to do was make her son smile, and all he wanted to do was “block it all out.”

Proud of her one-woman dance party, Wendy posted the clip to her Facebook page where it went viral.

Hey, at least she made the most of a bad situation!
