A Squarecutter Production
Your son Lance got that scooter for his 9th birthday only a week or so back. Not long before that he got a(first-time) paddling which was an upgrade on the handspankings he usually gets. It was for disobedience and lying about it.
There are some busy roads nearby Lance has permission to be on the sidewalk only up to the end of your road and back. Unfortunately for Lance when you saw him on his scooter while coming home from work early he was 3 blocks from home and going in the wrong direction When asked he said it was to show his best pal Mark who had been away an hadn't seen it yet. This fitted with the direction Lance was going in. When asked if he had your spouses permission he said he did tell her he would be outside riding his scooter but no he didn't ask for permission to go round to Mark's house. "I wasn't gong to be long Dad,"
Has Lance gone too far.
