You just recently became Devon's step-parent, but it was decided you'd be handling his discipline, along with that of your own children. Devon is aware of that, and he knows how you deal with it, but he's not had occasion to actually experience anything yet.
Devon has been a bit of a handful since the marriage. He's basically a really smart, nice kid, but he's used to being Lord of the Manor, and it seems like maybe he resents the recent intrusions into his home.
This morning, he's been a holy terror.
Finally, after several incidents, and a couple of warnings, he ignores you when you tell him to put his breakfast dishes in the sink. You tell him that he's used up every chance he has, so he'd better straighten up and mind, if he's not ready for his first spanking.
"You can't spank me," he tells you. "The bus is almost here, and that's make me late for school."
With that, he grabs his book bag and heads towards the door - leaving his dirty dishes on the table.
Will he miss the bus?
