A DMK Good Boy Production

Your fourteen year old son, Jacob, has befriended an elderly neighbor, Mr. Wilson. Jacob is a fine young man and rarely gives you any trouble. Mr. Wilson maintains a rather large vegetable garden. The garden is mostly a hobby for the gentleman as he grows way more than he needs for his own use. Mr. Wilson gives vegetables away to all of the neighbors. Mr. Wilson has been ill and has not been able to tend his garden like he would like and it has grown up with some weeds. Jacob is over visiting his elderly friend and the subject of the garden comes up. Mr. Wilson is feeling much better but is not sure he can get his garden back in shape and is contemplating letting it go for this year. Jacob says he can help.
Jacob comes home and takes your roto-tiller out of the garage and uses it to clear the overgrowth from Mr. Wilson's garden. He does a great job and the garden looks better than ever. Jacob cleans the roto-tiller and puts it away. Mr. Wilson is very appreciative of Jacob.
The issue is that Jacob is forbidden from using this piece of equipment. You feel you have not properly trained him how to use the equipment and it is therefore not safe for him to operate it. The last time Jacob used the machine (with your supervision) he almost caught his foot in the tines. You told Jacob then that he was not to touch the roto-tiller.
Mr. Wilson comes over this afternoon after you get home from work. He wants you to know what a fine young man you are raising and he tells you about how Jacob used the roto-tiller and got his garden back in shape. He asks you to again pass on his appreciation to Jacob.
Is your good boy in trouble?
