"When I was in high school I went to an away ball game one time. I must’ve been a freshman, because I didn’t drive yet. I lived in a farming area and back then we had rooter buses that would take you to away games because the next school over was a bit far away. My dad was supposed to pick me up at 11pm when the bus dropped me off, but the bus had broken down and we had to wait an hour and a half for the team bus to get there. I got a ride home and when I walked in, my parents just said, ‘You’re grounded for the rest of the school year.’ No questions, nothing. It took them about a week to come to their senses and realize I hadn’t done anything wrong. They never apologized, but they lifted the grounding and I figured that was as good as I was going to get from them."
