KEEP OUT!

Standard

After an impressive afternoon of continuous bickering, my 10-year-old son had had it with his little sister.  Stomping upstairs, he slammed his bedroom door.  A few moments later, he opened it again, taped a sign to the outside, then slammed it again.  The sign read:

KEEP OUT OF J’S ROOM!

Under these words, a nine digit keypad had been created with the instructions – “Type in secret code to enter”.

Of course, there was no real connection between the drawn keypad and the actual lock on my son’s door, but to my 8-year-old daughter, this was the most hindering deterrent imaginable.  She had to retaliate.

Several minutes later, I heard my daughter’s door shut (then reopen and shut again because the first slam hadn’t been nearly dramatic enough).  On her door, the following sign had been posted:

J KEEP OUT OF R’S ROOM UNTIL I NEED SOMETHING FROM YOU OR YOU WANT TO PLAY HANGMAN OR ANYTHING ELSE. IF YOU DO WANT TO PLAY JUST KNOCK. NO CODE NEEDED.

Not quite the same impact, but you gotta give the girl credit for political disclaimers.
