A DMK Production
You have a new boss and s/he has invited you and your family over for dinner so you all can get to know each other.
Your thirteen year old son, Carl, is a very picky eater and can often be difficult when it comes time to eat. Carl complains about having to go to the dinner and says he is concerned he will have to eat something "gross."
Carl is still subject to spanking. You tell Carl he needs to go and remind him to be polite and not say anything. You tell him if he doesn't like something to stay quiet, take a small portion, and that you will get him something after the dinner is over.
You are all seated and the evening has gone well. Your boss's spouse then brings dinner to the table. The main course is a tuna casserole (an old family secret recipe.) The one thing Carl despises the most is tuna casserole. You look at Carl to give him a visual reminder to not say anything and you see:
Your boss's spouse sees Carl's reaction too and is obviously hurt and offended.
When you get in the car to go home you tell Carl he is in trouble. He responds, "Why? I didn't say anything."
