Events You Never Shared with Your Parents.......
Last night me and a buddy were talking about raising children, and I told him that my two boys were better than I could have ever wished for, but as a child I didn't think I was as "good" as my children are, and in a way they pay for what I did as a child, as I just assume they would do some of the same things I done, if Tonya or I were not involved in the two of them as we are.
The conversation got around to things we done as children that we never told our parents about, and got very interesting. I done the normal stuff that most kids do and some things that were probably more "not normal" but I never got into too much that would be terribly interesting.....but my buddy...did
When he was in High School his family lived in Guntersville Alabama and during the spring of his senior year, his dad bought a Ranger Bass boat for fishing and skiing on Lake Guntersville. The Boat was brand new and the way he described it, it was a typical high end bass boat with all the bells and whistles.
During Spring Break the boat was only a couple of weeks old, and he and several of his buddies, 3 to be exact, decided to take the boat out on the Lake for the day while his dad was playing golf on Wednesday as he always did. After his round of Golf he would hang out at the Club House and play poker with several of his friends and not get home until very late at night. So they took the boat and launched and rode around the lake most of the day, and had a Blast. Everything was perfect, and they spent the whole afternoon on the water. As the sun was starting to go down they decided it was time to take the boat back home and get it into the shed it was backed into, as if it had never left. As they approached the area where the boat ramp was one of the buddies on the boat said that the boat almost stops where it is when you pull the throtle to neutral. So they pretty much came into the dock with the bow pointed straight at the dock on plane. As you guessed it, the boat didn't stop right at the dock it rammed into the dock and hit it very hard. It not only cracked the hull at the bow, it tore up the cap at the bow and tore the trolling motor completely off the boat. The damage went from the point of the bow all the way back to the pedistol seat on the bow casting platform. None of the boys were hurt just scared to death.
They got the boat onto the trailer and just laid the trolling motor in the boat and got it home just after dark, and backed it into the shed just like it was when they got it. Later that night he heard his dad drive up and he got up to confront him about the boat and damages. When he got to the front door he noticed his dad wasn't there so he went outside looking for him, hoping that he didn't park in front of the shed as he did from time to time. Well he found him laying on a yard swing in the front yard completely passed out, and obviously drunk. He then told me that instantly he went to his dad's truck which was parked at the side of the house and the door was still open, so he got in and cranked the truck and pulled it around to the backyard and promptly drove it straight into the front of the boat just left of the trailer tounge and rammed the truck into the bow of the boat. Then after making sure the set things up to look like it was a fresh "accident" he went back inside and left his dad on the yard swing in the front yard.
The next morning he got up and during the night his dad had found his way to his bed but wasn't up yet, but Mamma was. She looked out at the truck with the drivers side door still open, rammed into the boat in the shed and she "Lit Daddy Up" to put it mildly. The Boat was repaired and cost was less than the truck repairs, but all was fixed, but Daddy was the blame.
And he never knew he didn't do it.
What have you ever done that you didn't tell your parents about???????
