Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, December 5, 1976 C13 Kids' Rotten Days Are Our Fault, Of Course My son slouched into the kitchen last night, threw his books on the countertop and said, "I've just had the worst day of my entire life and it's all your fault!" "How do you figure that?" I asked. "Just because you made me go back up to my room and turn off all the lights before I went to school, I Erma Bombeck iweddingsengagementsi missed the bus. Then, with all your nagging about cleaning up my room, I couldn't find my gym clothes and got 15 points knocked off my grade." "The gym clothes were folded and in your bottom drawer." "Yeah, well, what yo-yo would expect them to be there?" "You've got a point." "I hope you're happy," he grumbled. "I have failed English." "I did that?" "That's right. I told you I had a paper that was due before lunch and you made me turn my lights off last night and wouldn't let me do it." "It was 1:30 in the morning." "Just forget it. It's done. Did you have a good lunch today? I hope so because thanks to you, I didn't get any." "What's that got to do with me?" "You're the one who wouldn't advance me next week's allowance. And more good news. You know the suede jacket you got me for my birthday last year? Well, it's gone." "And I'm to blame for that?" "I'm glad you admit it. All I hear around here is, 'Hang up your coat, hang up your pajamas, hang up your sweater'. . . and the one time I take your advice and hang up my jacket on a hook in the lunchroom, someone rips it off. If I had just dropped it on the floor by my feet like I always do, I'd have that suede jacket today." "It sounds like quite a day." "It's not over yet," he said. "Didn't you forget something?" "Like what?" I asked. "Like weren't you supposed to remind me I had ball practice after school?" "I put a note on your desk." do that. I swear, I was talking to some of the guys and we decided , "Under all that junk I'm supposed parents can sure screw up their v to find a note? It would serve you kids." right if I got cut.
