HOUSTON - The kids were naughty, Dad put the presents on eBay instead of under the tree — and Mom’s been crying ever since.The tale only gets worse!
Now, even the tree’s down.
Saturday morning was sure not to be very jolly for three brothers — 9, 11 and 15 — who didn’t straighten up when their father told them Santa wasn’t too pleased with their fighting, cuss words and obscene gestures.
“We told them they were destroying each other and the calm and peace in the household. It had to stop,” said the man, who did tell the paper that he works as an information technology specialist and lives in Pasadena.Double-dared? Ah, not the way to go, young man.
The boys pledged to be nice, but were back to their old ways the next morning.
That night, Dad announced that he would indeed be putting $700 in video games up for sale on eBay. The oldest boy double-dared his dad to make good on his word.
Son shouldn’t have done that.
I'm still thinking goats... or maybe a pig. I hate to say it, but it would likely be $700 better spent.
