This is what happens when you start planning for Halloween when we're barely past Memorial Day.
There's a woman named Rachel Schmidt from Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. And earlier this month, she was at a yard sale and saw a realistic-looking Halloween skeleton decoration for $2, so she bought it.
It was so big that it wouldn't fit in the trunk, so she put it in the front seat . . . and even hooked it in with a seatbelt.
Then she went shopping for groceries and left it in the car. And when she came back outside . . . there was a cop car blocking her in and a cop looking in her window.
Apparently someone had seen the skeleton and thought it was a real dead body. And since, you know, it's JUNE, no one would've thought it might be a Halloween decoration.
Anyway, Rachel cleared things up with the cop and posted about what happened on Facebook . . . and now her story is going viral.
