My wife wanted to spend the morning shopping for Christmas presents, so I agreed to get up with the kids, make breakfast, and take them to the park for a couple of hours.
The weather was very rainy and gloomy that morning, so we had to skip the park and stay home.
The kids wanted to go to the park even though the weather was bad, and they were very upset when I said no multiple times. I told the kids that we could watch a movie or play a board game, but they wanted to play video games in their bedroom instead. I was sitting downstairs reading the newspaper when I heard a lamp break. I heard the boys screaming and I ran up the stairs. There was water all over the bathroom floor and one of the boys had a huge scrape on their head. I turned off the water and slipped on the floor. My shirt, pants, and shoes were wet and the boys were still fighting. I heard the fire alarm beeping in the kitchen and I remembered toast in the oven. I was going crazy trying to clean everything up when I heard the doorbell. I didn’t order delivery and I wasn’t expecting any guests. The HVAC repair guy was standing there. He said my wife scheduled an HVAC tune-up for that morning. I called my wife and she confirmed the forgotten appointment. I had to let the guy in the house so he could take care of the HVAC service. The boys are still grounded from the television and video games after that brawl in the bathroom.
