    Is it ethical...? 6th Dec 17 at 11:07 AM
    To wrap a ton of empty boxes in xmas paper and every time the lad plays up chuck one into the fire?

    It sure is effective, but is it ethical?
    WRORK is an acronym for the company I used to work for...for the 10th time ..and relax.

    Is it as bad as whenever the ice cream van comes past playing music, I tell him the music is to let you know they have run out?

    Surely I'm not the only one who was told that my presents would go to the local orphanage if I was naughty.

    I'm sure this started as a joke on Facebook.
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    But they won't know that they've got all their presents, they'll think they lost some in the fire.

    They'll still get their main big presents though, the DS, PS, bike, mobile phone etc

    Pretending to destroy gifts, or a coverted item, seems, to me,to be a last resort for failing parents.

    I'm trying to image what the consequences for bad behaviour after Christmas and in the New year would be . .

    What happens if they aren't naughty and they sit there on Christmas day opening a bunch of empty boxes or notice that half their presents have disappeared?
