This is a question Terrible Parenting

My parents used to lock my brother, sister and I in the car while they went to the pub for a "quick one" after work. This quick one might last several hours, during which they would send bottles of Indian Tonic Water to us by way of refreshment.

On one particularly cold evening, bored stupid, we lit a small bonfire on the back seat of the car using the cigarette lighter and the contents of the glove box. We owe our lives to passing winos. (BTW: Please no more Maddie or Jesus gags, they've been done.)

The best intentions
My older brother, aged ten, fell and scraped his knee. With mother our, it was up to my dad to tend to this mishap. In a stupendous display of backwards logic, my father surmised that if Dettol can clean both wounds and toilets, surely toilet cleaner (containing bleach) must be able to clean both toilets and wounds. It took my brother several minutes to convince him that it was NOT a good idea to apply toilet duck to his injury.
