*Me calling upstairs to Sam*
“Hey Sam, what are you doing up there?”
(I knew the answer I just needed a song and dance intro)
Me: “Sam, bring you and your computer down here right now.”
*Sam comes down looking guilty*
Me: “Sam, you know the rules about your computer. You just broke them. That’s some big disobedience with consequences attached.”
Sam: “WHAAAAAA!!!!! YOU HURT MY FEELINGS!!!!!”
Me: “Sam, I’m going to put this to you in language you understand: ‘Rock, Paper Scissors, disobedience trumps your feelings.'”
Me: “Gimme your computer.”
Sleep tight little machine. You’re going down for a good, long nap.
