1 BOTD 29 April 2013 - Getting to Bear on Sun Apr 28, 2013 5:30 pm

You and your ten-year old son, Graham, are regular shoppers at a local hobby store. Recently, the shop has sponsored a give away for a huge, stuffed bear. The basic rule is that you can put your name on each of your receipts (no more than once a day), and drop the receipt in an entry box. You explain to him that that is so people who buy more have a better chance of winning.

Today is the day of the drawing. Graham talks you into going to the store today, to make one last purchase. After the purchase, he carefully puts his name on the receipt and takes it to put it in the drawing box. Since the drawing is going to be soon, you decide to stick around for it.

A few minutes go buy, and you start to wonder where Graham has gone. When you check on him, you find that he's opened the entry box, and has pulled most of the receipts out of it, and is stuffing them behind a display, making sure to leave all of yours.

When you confront him, he tells you he's just trying to increase his chances of winning.

What has Graham won?

If Graham were 5, I could even appreciate his logic.

At 10, he surely knows this is cheating, and has demonstrated he knows by stuffing the receipts that aren't his behind a display rather than leaving them where anyone could see them.

What Graham hasn't won is the bear. He has disqualified himself from the drawing. Assuming that the other receipts are accessible and not destroyed, they can be put back into the box for a drawing, less my/Graham's receipts. If the shop owner is amenable, Graham can participate by choosing the winner--who is guaranteed NOT to be him. I know that's "mean"--but it's also instructive.

If the (removed) receipts have been destroyed, I'm going to suggest they start the contest over, this time with a locked box.

Graham and I are going to talk about this issue. If he can convince me he really didn't know what he was doing was wrong (which I doubt), we will leave it at talk. Otherwise, it's time for the hairbrush to do the talking.

I hate just doing a DITTO on someone else but Kier truly couldn't have solved this any better in my opinion. It seems I have again saved a lot of keystrokes.

I will just say the good doctor has written the right prescription.

Graham has won a first class trip over my knee for a long "talk" and talk on playing fair.

When I get him home it'll be a case of "bare it and bear it kid" and no doubt with quite a few grizzlies before I'm finished.

I agree this is infantile for a boy Grahams age. We will remove our receipts and bale out of the competition, and where would I put such a toy! Evil or Very Mad evil spanko me wishes the bear would come alive and turn Graham over his knee. I suppose the bear would make fine adornment being both prop and comforter during a spanking

Grahams punishment will be hand spanking topped off with a paddle
