Jane and her children were grocery shopping this morning. She took her eyes off the children momentarily, and they snuck next door to the pet shop. Right near the door, the owner had a pen of ducks. The kids were engrossed in them.
Suddenly Jane hears, “You can’t do that here!”
Instinctively she knew it was her boys, and she hurried towards the sound. There was duck down everywhere, and there was squawking loudly from the ducks.
The boys had brought the ducks over from the pet store, and opened a package of razors, and sprayed the ducks and everything else with shave cream and then trying to grab the ducks they started to shave them.
“John, George, and James, what are you doing? Oh, Maisie, I am so sorry.”
“Jane, I have had enough of your boys and the trouble they cause. I’m sorry, but I have to ban you all from the store. Good luck finding another one who will suffer your children’s antics.”
“But, but Maisie you can’t do that. Where will we go?”
“I am sorry Jane, but I can’t afford you and the kids and their destruction every time you come in. My mind is made up! The only way you can come into the store is by yourself. Find a babysitter!”
