Causing A (Cut)Scene On Family Vacation

| Related | July 10, 2013

(We’re on vacation in London, for the first time. All my brother has done is stay inside and play video games for about two days, even if we invite him out elsewhere. My parents and I have just got back from a day of sightseeing.)

Brother: “Why’d you leave me? Stop leaving me! I don’t want to be alone!”

Me: “We invited you when we left; you said no.”

Mom: “You know, honey, you could come with us when—”

Brother: “No.”

Dad: “Don’t interrupt your mother! How about we go for dinner in the—”

Brother: “No!”

Me: “What do you want to do, then?”

Brother: “Play my game. It got to a good part!”

Me: “But… we’re in London, and for the first time. We’re probably not going to go again, and you play your game?”

Brother: “Sorry, what’d you say? It went to a cut-scene so I didn’t hear you. Hey, can we go to McDonalds for dinner?”

Mom: “All the places in London and you choose American fast food.”

Brother: “Please?”

Mom, Dad, & I: “NO!”

Brother: “Cut-scene again. What?”
