A DMK Production
It is a Saturday and your twelve year-old son, Brock, is out with his friends. You get a call from Brock and he sounds upset. Brock says "he thinks he is in trouble" and asks you to come quickly. Brock is at a restaurant on the other side of town. Brock explains his trouble and you head out.
You find your son sitting in the restaurant and he is alone:
Brock and his friends planned to get lunch and then do a "dine and dash." The boys ordered and ate and then when the check came they all left except for Brock. Brock tells you he had a change of mind but he has no money but he does have a restaurant check for four cheeseburgers with onion rings and chocolate shakes totaling almost forty dollars. You have brought the money to pay the check and leave a tip.
Is Brock indeed in trouble? He is not supposed to be on that side of town and he did agree to the dine and dash. However, he did ultimately do the right thing. What about Brock's "friends?"
