A Jack Production
You have four sons - 12-year old Taylor, 20-year old Thomas, 17-year old Trent, and 14-year old Tim.
The four boys are close friends. Each of them have their own interests and friends, but they all enjoy spending time together as well. Taylor and Tim both face sore (bare) bottoms as consequences when needed, just like Thomas and Trent did when they were younger. Since Trent turned 16, you grounded him a couple of times, but you haven't heated his rear in probably close to three years now. Thomas was about the same.
Thomas lived at home the past two years, but this year, he's moved from the local community college to a 'real' college, and he's living out of town now. He has a 'mid-term break' this week, which gives him four days off, and he's used it to come home.
The weather is beautiful right now, so he took his brothers to a local attraction that has midway games, a corn maze, and lots of very good food (which is very bad for you). It's fun, but there's not a ton of stuff to do, so the boys agree they'll be home between about 4 and 5pm.
With that knowledge, you get the grill going, planning to make a special dinner. Five o'clock comes and goes, and there's no sign of the boys. You call, and get no response from any of them. Finally, about 7pm, they arrive. The attraction was too crowded, so they left a little early and took in a movie. They all had their phones off, and no one checked them until they were already on the way home.
You have rules on timeliness, and while you allow some leeway, the boys were very late with no communication. Thomas knows this means Tim and Taylor both face sore bottoms. He apologizes, and says it's his fault. He also says that, since you can't really ground him, he should get the same thing (upgraded for his age and size). Trent, who was getting ready to argue with you about grounding (since he could tell you weren't very happy with all of them), adds 'screw that noise! you're not spanking me.'
Should you just get the meat on the grill, should you grill something else, or will you just 'screw that noise'?
