Maximumble: Is this your punishment or mine?

Posted by , under EXTERNAL USE ONLY



This comic has me wondering if its creator, Chris Hallbeck, is pretty much a psychic or some kind of wise man. I know I’ve leveled privilege-removing threats at my kids and been mentally praying to myself that it works, because if it doesn’t… ugh. So much more work. It’s like a bluff almost.

When a parent says “I can still turn this car around!” we all know one of the last things they want to do is turn the car around, especially after the torment they’ve endured that made them utter those words.

  1. This hits home right now. Why do their consequences have to punish us? The Missus and I were just discussing this!

    This was the reason my parents never grounded us, even (well especially) as teens. My mother didn’t see why she should have to suffer along with us. There are plenty of other punishments if you have a little imagination!
