Sounds like a good plan My parents always threatened "stale bread and water" punishment. Never did it.i'd be pretty livid and likely would end up in Adult Protective Services (aka jail) as i'd want to lock them up and feed them bread and water for a week. a good reason why i am not and never wanted to be a parent. i'd have no patience at all for that kind of behavior
brilliant!My brother ran away from home when he was 14. Sherrif in the next county picked him and his friend up and put them in jail, called parents. Mom and Dad went straight over, but brother didn't know they were there. Then made a deal with the sherrif to keep him for 3 days and give him a stale bologna sandwich, no condiments, and a glass of water, 3 times a day. He never ran away again!
Some of these numbers ring through even after I've blocked them.we went through the collection calls for someone and we used to get messages on the answering machine. we never called them back or answered to tell them that they had the wrong number. finally with this new cell phone we can block numbers and we've not had any calls since.
