A Late Chat Production
You have a thirteen year old son, Jeremiah. Jeremiah is subject to spanking and finds himself getting one about every six weeks.
Jeremiah, is responsible for mowing the yard. Lately he has been reluctant to take care of his chore and often requires a reminder to get the yard mowed. This time has been bad. The yard should have been mowed five days ago. You reminded Jeremiah for the first two days and he had every excuse in the world not to do it and kept "forgetting." Then there were two days of rain and Jeremiah couldn't mow. Yesterday the grass was still too wet. Today is a wonderful warm sunny day and the grass is dry but in severe need of a mow.
Jeremiah is lounging around in front of the TV. You send Jeremiah out and tell him to mow the yard NOW. Jeremiah gets up and goes outside. You assume the yard will finally be taken care of. You look outside to check on Jeremiah and you see him lounging on the hammock in the back yard and he hasn't touched the mower.
How do you respond to Jeremiah? Will your lawn ever be mowed?
