Meet Simon Smith, a father who volunteered to help out on his daughter’s school trip

It started off as an innocent event

But things quickly began getting out of hand


All the children were asked to go to the toilet before they set off but…


Then the real nightmare began


Even Simon’s own daughter was against him

If that wasn’t enough, someone started getting sick

But the children’s curiosity quickly proved to be the most annoying thing on the trip so far


After they arrived at the museum, hope was nowhere in sight

Simon kept documenting the lovely things kids were telling him

When his wife asked how things were going, Simon told the harsh truth


Eventually, the horror story moved to the gift shop

Nothing changed, even on the way back

His final tweets perfectly summed everything up
