Can any parents relate to this? 17 year old had told us he didnt want to come on holiday with us and was going with friends. So mrs barky and I are about to finalise our holiday plans,so over lunch the following conversation took place.
mrs barky"right,jordan,we need to know your plans so we can book our holiday-are you still going away with your friends?"
jordan"oh,yes,all booked,I forgot to tell you"
mrs barky"when are you going?"
jordan"err,cant remember exact dates"
mrs barky"but we need to know exact dates so someone is here to look after the dogs"
jordan"will get the dates after lunch"
mrs barky"where are you going?"
mrs barky"well,is it abroad or in britain?"
jordan"it was either cornwall or lanzarote"
mrs barky"how much is it costing each?"
jordan"err,it was either 100 or 600 each"
at this point mrs barky loses plot and sends him to call his friend to find out details-and he doesnt know EITHER!
now trying to get hold of another of the friends who actually booked this thing to find out!
