A Late Chat Production
You have three sons. Tom is thirteen, Rick is twelve, and Harry is eleven. Spanking is an effective punishment for all three boys.
Your spouse was called on last minute to baby sit for a friend for a few hours this afternoon and agreed to help. Your spouse made a casserole for dinner and left it in the refrigerator. A note was left for you, Tom, Rick, and Harry saying dinner was in the refrigerator and to heat it in the microwave.
The boys get home from school and see the note and open the fridge to check out dinner. The casserole contains broccoli and the boys don't particularly like broccoli and so they devise an alternative dinner plan. Your family keeps an emergency cash fund hidden in a canister in the kitchen. The boys are aware of the cash. The boys call for a pizza delivery and leave the casserole in the fridge. The boys pay for the pizza and driver tip from the emergency cash fund. They throw the note away.
You come home and see the boys eating the pizza.
The boys tell you that your spouse left a note and is out for the evening. They don't mention the casserole. They offer you a slice of pizza.
You don't think much of the situation until your spouse comes home and asks why no one has eaten yet. You are a bit confused and say that you all had the pizza. You are then told that there was a casserole. You confront Tom, Rick, and Harry and they admit to taking some emergency cash and ordering pizza because they don't like broccoli.
