What is this sentence missing and where ?

One day my dad and his brother stop me if you've heard this story started on what they thought would be an uneventful drive to work.

I thinks it's missing commas

  1. It's missing more than commas.

    What phrase/clause can you remove to make the sentence flow smoothly? Before and after that phrase/clause that interrupts the sentence, you need dashes (make sure you don't use hyphens!).

  2. Yes, definitely it is missing something.
    In this case instead of using commas, I would use dashes. Parentheses can also be used .

    One day my dad and his brother - stop me if you've heard this story - started on what they thought would be an uneventful drive to work.
