Parents Have It Rough

Jack Moore wrote a story about two teenagers. One teenager was talking to another, "I'm really worried. Dad slaves away at his job so I'll never want for anything, so I can go to college. And Mom spends every day washing and ironing and cleaning up after me. She takes care of me when I'm sick."

The other kid says, "So what are you worried about?"

The first teenager says, "I'm afraid they might try to escape."
