Total natural consequences

Gotta love them.

At Christmas we had two spare old phones lying around in case anyone needed them. Well, Andrew took one back to college with him because his phone wasn't holding a charge very long. Gary took the other a bit ago for the same reason.

Anyway, yesterday Gary left the last working phone on the bus.

I've been totally nice about it. I understand. I'm sympathetic, and there is nothing I can do about it. So sad.

Next month we are eligible for new phones and Roland is planning on getting one. I told Gary a while back that he could have Roland's hand-me-down, but until then he is stuck.

He told me that he HAS to have a phone. He has important phone calls to make and he can't wait until he gets home.

Oh the horror.

I told him that I understood. "It is going to be a hard month."

"Isn't there anything else I can do?"

"Do you have any money?"


"Can't think of anything then."

I do love natural consequences.


  1. Heh heh heh!

    I love it, I love it, I love it!

  2. Big fan of natural consequences. The lessons last so much longer. Love it!

  3. Good job~! Hard to do but so effective!

  4. Those are the very best lessons of all. I don't know about you, but I would also be chuckling evilly when he wasn't around.
