Miriam’s kids got money from her dad for their 14th birthday.
She wished they would put the cash into a savings account for a car.
But, Miriam’s kids decided to use $900 to buy this big flat screen cable for their room. When her kids came home with the cable, Miriam told them that she did not want the cable hung on the wall. Her kids talked her into accepting when they came with an installation kit and wall mount. They had all of the necessary items and Miriam felt good about the decision to let them hang the cable on the wall. After all, that would give her more room to walk around the room since she was still washing their laundry. Miriam heard her kids on the cellphone with a friend. They called some reinforcements for help with the tv. She felt good about that choice, because Miriam knew they were unlikely to lift the TV and hang it alone. Her kids asked where the drill was at 7:20 p.m.. at 7:44 p.m. Miriam heard a loud crash in their room. She knew the TV was on the floor. It was busted and there was a clear crack on the screen. Miriam’s kids were beside themselves, but she was aggravated about the tiles on the floor. Five tiles were chipped and cracked. Miriam wasn’t sure if she would be able to get the same tiles, because they had been installed by a foreign supplier 12 years ago. She was mad at her kids, but she tried not to get too mad because they were already broken about losing the TV.
