Rather You Than Me


“Mum’s gonna go nuts! What you gonna say?”

“Someone stole the car.”

“Yeah, as though she’ll believe that after the police report. When you said you’d help me learn to drive, I didn’t expect doughnuts and handbrake turns.”

“If you can master the extreme manoeuvres, the rest’s a cinch.”

“She’s gonna kill you.”

“I know. How about we say you were driving?”

“No way am I carrying the can for this. I’d be grounded for a month minimum.”

“What about me? You’re her favourite; she’ll be lenient with you.”

“Sorry, you’ll just have to buy some flowers and face her, Dad.”
