Funny Story: Age of Golf

When I was little, my parents used to take me and my brothers to the mini-golf courses. My dad was a talented liar but never the smartest man. I was standing right near by when he told the clerk my age, and in order to save some money he said I was younger than I was. When you're little you don't understand things like that, so I corrected my father as soon as he said it. I'm sure he was regretting it when I said "no daddy I'm three".

  1. That is not a good idea, but at least it did not carry over to you. I would not want you to stretch the truth to Daisy.

  3. I have heard people do that all the time. It is just sad- and look at the lesson you are teaching your kids. In your case it still is burned into your mind. Good for you for speaking up!

  6. When I was a kid, I came running out of a restaurant with a handful of money, yelling, "Mom, you left your money on the table!!!" Yeah, it was the waitress's tip.

  7. Kids will ALWAYS call you out on your lies. Remember that in case you ever try to pull that with your future kids ;)

  9. ...and see....you've never forgotten that.
    Sometimes, parents don;t mean any harm but it's always harmful to lie about ANYthing. We need to set examples for our children...
