My Aunt once told me that nothing will ever bring you more joy and more pain than your children...
Today I was reminded yet again why some animals eat their young.
I just got off the phone with the buffoon. HE had just gotten off the phone with a very nice police officer from Lower Providence Township. It seems my eldest son and his friends decided it would be great fun to loiter outside of the local WaWa at two o’clock in the morning.
The officer was quick to point out that the boys weren’t doing anything wrong and they had only received citations for breaking curfew. They are all under 18. He also said since Cody has never been in trouble with the law before (not anything that stuck that is) that the best course of action will be for him to plead “not guilty” and the judge will likely sentence him to community service and there will possibly be a fine. Which HE will pay.
And my dear son, is in for a rude awakening. He is now under some SERIOUS restrictions. And he WILL find his ass a job within ONE WEEK or I’ll make his life a living hell and he’ll lose even more privileges. While I am grateful they weren’t robbing the joint and I didn’t have to go bail their sorry little tushes out of jail I will not make light of this. He will be held accountable. If I make light of it there may be a next time and it could be worse.
Cody is unaware that I know what happened. This occurred last night/this morning. (Gee, I can’t imagine why he didn’t call me to tell me his wonderful news.) He isn’t home yet. Nicholas (one of the other offenders) is bringing him home sometime tonite. Now I could make a big fuss and go drag his ass home now. But I’d rather lie in wait here. Let him think I know nothing yet. Then spring it on him. Plus I really don’t feel like making the forty-five minutes drive up and back with the price of gas where it is.
PMS makes me more evil than usual… (evil laugh)
