CLEVELAND-Tensions were high this evening as Robert Scump, father of three, finally put his foot down.
“I have had it up to here,” Scump proclaimed as his children once again entered a frivolous argument about what restaurant they were going to.
“I’m tired of this bickering and so help me god, I will pull this car over,” Scump said into the rearview mirror of his swamp colored 1998 Toyota Sienna.
Scump is known for his good-natured demeanor and ability to eat an entire Whole Foods rotisserie chicken, so this outbreak came as a surprise to everyone.
While his three children fell silent, Scump breathed a sigh of relief before claiming that there was plenty of food in the fridge.
This seemingly motivated his children, who quickly resolved their differences and decided that The Cheesecake Factory was the restaurant of choice for the evening.
This event marks Robert Scump’s third threat to pull the car over this month and fourteenth parental threat overall.
* Others include “Only thirty minutes of computer time” and “no sleepovers” but he has yet to act on any of these.
It is safe to say that as assertive as Robert may seem, he definitely will not do anything about it ever.
Scump’s children were unavailable for comment.
