I remember when I was a youngster, I used to do all kinds of crazy things.
Every so often, my parents would leave the house to me and my siblings.
They always said to not throw any parties, but that was just too big of a temptation for me. I was the eldest of the siblings and I told my younger siblings to keep their mouths shut when I decided to throw parties when our parents were away. I gave them candy for motivation to stay quiet and they never ratted me out. Well, there was this one party that got a little bit out of hand. I was mad when a few guys that I didn’t like came to the party. I told them to leave and they wouldn’t listen. We ended up getting into a fight and then some of my friends had my back. The fight got out of hand and one of the guys ended up getting slammed into the thermostat! The thermostat was busted up really bad and then the HVAC system quit working. I told everybody the party was over and I kicked those guys out of the house with my friends. They apologized that things got out of hand but I knew it wasn’t any fault of my friends. My friends were great though and came up with the idea to come up with enough money to buy a similar thermostat. So we all got our money together and we had just enough. We went to the hardware store to buy a thermostat that was the same model as the one we had. I installed the thermostat and my parents never knew anything was wrong.
