CAVENDISH, PEI — A couple from British Columbia decided to take a vacation to beautiful Prince Edward Island. Their kids had gotten off school for the summer, and they finally had the chance to start their long-awaited summer vacation.
All was going well when they arrived at their destination. The owner of the seaside resort they were staying at was working hard cutting grass, cleaning units and taking reservations. The sun was shining and there was even a beautiful beach just steps away from their cottage! The kids had just two responsibilities: relax and have fun! However, the two siblings, Jacob and Anna, made a BIG mistake after being on summer vacation for less than three days: they told their mom they were bored.
“Oh, you’re bored, huh?” mom said. “That’s great news! That poor resort owner is working hard to keep her guests happy. Since you’re bored – you two can help her out! Anna, ask her which units you can clean. Jacob, hun, why don’t you ask her if she wants you to cut the grass?”
The mother then happily went about her business — doing laundry, watching her favorite shows, and whistling as her kids helped the resort owner with the chores.
“We’ve made a huge mistake,” the kids told the cottage resort owner, as they tried to figure out how to fire up the lawn mower.
At publishing time, the kids had announced that they believe they’ll be able to avoid boredom for the rest of the summer 😉
