Kinda corny

The couple who took their 3-week-old baby on a little journey through a corn maze - and stayed lost - have attained national attention. The couple ended up calling 911 to be rescued. But their brief maze in the maize gave radio talk shows a good amount of fodder for conversation. "That woman just needed to get out of the house and her husband probably said, 'Let's go the corn maze for fun.' "  

Confession: I once got lost in a hay maze - a relatively tiny maze - and ended up calling for help. A woman appeared overhead on a catwalk and simply gave instructions  to the exit. "Happens once a day," she told us.

Question: How long do you wait to ask for help? Any help?
