I didn’t get any sleep the previous evening, because I was forced to drive all the way to Ybor City to pick up my sneaky child from the police station.
- I thought he was spending the evening with one of his friends, so I never questioned it! I even drove him to St.
Petersburg to this friend’s house. He was supposed to be there overnight and call me the next day to pick him up. Well, my child ended up in Ybor City last night. Him and his friend were caught in a local bar trying to buy alcohol. The police picked the two of them up in Ybor City and held them until their parents could pick them up. However, his friend couldn’t even get his father to pick up the phone, so I was forced to leave him there. Since he was a minor, I couldn’t take him home too. My sneaky son had a fake ID, as well as the police confiscated it. The friend had a fake ID too. When I asked my child how they both ended up in Ybor City, he tried to say they were lost looking for another friend. I told him to try again because I wasn’t buying the lies. Ybor City is at least an hour away from St. Petersburg, so you do not accidentally end up in Ybor City. I didn’t even wait for another excuse or lie. I grounded my sneaky son for two weeks, as well as I took his video games and after school privileges. I wonder if his friend’s father finally picked up the phone, but I hope he made it back home safely.
