A Late Chat Production
Your fourteen year old son, Logan, is on a break from school. You are rather liberal with Logan, especially on school holidays, but there is one thing he is required to do every week. Logan is to make sure all of the trash is collected and that the can is taken to the curb by Friday morning as the truck comes each Friday. Logan typically takes care of the trash on Thursday night.
It is Friday morning and you are leaving for work. You note Logan is still awake and has apparently been playing a video game all night. You are not too overly concerned as there is no school and you assume Logan will grab a nap soon. You go outside and notice the can has not been taken to the curb. You step inside and remind Logan of the trash.
Logan acknowledges you and says he will take care of it "in a minute - as soon as he gets to a save point." You head on to work.
You get home and notice the trash can was never taken to the curb and the truck has come and gone for the week. You go inside and find Logan is still playing his video game. (You ascertain that he did "take a nap and get something to eat.") You ask about the trash and remind Logan you told him about it before you left that morning.
Logan gets indignant and says, "I guess I forgot. It's no big deal, it's just trash."
