The Reason Why Ed Should Never Be A Father

The other week I met with Ed for our usual Saturday afternoon coffee. Ed told me a story as I sat down with my mocha latté.

“I saw a Volkswagen TV commercial where a kid that looked just like my nephew used temper tantrums to get what he wanted,” said Ed. “As an adult he test drove a Volkswagen and was about to throw another tantrum when the salesman slid him a contract for the car.

“Yesterday I was out with my nephew. He started throwing a temper tantrum because he wanted ice cream. I thought, hey, I’ve seen this before. So I took him to the dealership and locked him in the trunk of a Volkswagen.”

It was then that I knew Ed should never have children.
