Too Funny!


Too funny! The hardware store next to my home left a wooden pallet leaning against a wall where it was discovered by a roving gang of boys (aged 6-8). The oldest boy spotted a weak board and with one kick put his foot through it. His friend, highly impressed, tried also but the other boards were solid. Suddenly all four swarmed! Two to a board they kicked and bounced and attacked. After only a minute the pallet was a deceased, former pallet.

But the part that made me laugh out loud (really quite loud) was when some adults came walking wast. The youngest spun round, took two steps away, and started throwing his tennisball into the air.

*looks nonchalant* "It wasn't me"

Oh! Evidence! You can extort their lunch money from them for at least a year with this!

I could have kept snapping and caught evidence of what they got up to next.

little rascals. Can I be grown up for a second? What's happening to kids these days, when I was young I would have gotten my siblings and carried that pallet off, used the wood for a tree house or something...why is everything so destructive these days...
and moment is over!

I looked at those boards all evening thanks to your comment. I was wondering what projects I could build given the bits of wood. But soon afterwards the mess was cleaned up. My tree house dreams were dashed.

Of course, it is a hardware store.
