Never give your kids a flip phone–Ouch!
It reminds me of a funny story that my brother is absolutely going to kill me for sharing with y’all. Oh well – maybe it’ll get him to actually call me, even if it is just to ream me out – LOL! (Hi Mike! I love ya!).
Oh boy… I’m not sure how old my brother was at the time, maybe 8 or 9? He was old enough to be dressing himself, and old enough to be lazy. He went through this phase where he was too lazy to wear underwear (can you guess where this is going?). Anyways, one day he got his peener stuck… stuck/caught in his zipper. It was so stuck that he required assistance getting it out. Thankfully my dad was home ’cause my mom and I were laughing so freaking hard that we were of absolutely no use. The poor boy – he was in total agony and there was my mom and I rolling around on the floor laughing. Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah… He claims that to this day there’s a scar.
Oh and in case this ever happens to your son – here’s how to fix it (complete with pictures!). Apparently it’s called a “zipper bite”. Thankfully I only have daughters.
