Sometimes, kids are just so ungrateful. You want to take a trip with them to spend some quality time, and they'd rather stay home or see their pals. But one set of parents came up with an ingenious solution - and took a different family member on their trip instead...
Cassie Langan, a mom from Australia, has gone viral this week."We asked our kids if they would like to go on a day trip to Warrnambool today," she explained on Facebook.
"We were met with the response ‘that’s so boring, I don’t want to go.'""Chris and I decided that instead of taking 3 unappreciative kids out, we let the ones who didn’t want to go stay home."
"We took our most overworked family member for a well deserved day out ... our modem.""Modem had a fantastic day not being used by the kids and it was lovely not to listen to constant bickering." And the pictures are absolutely hilarious.
