Parents of Vingle, let this story remind you of what happens when you've properly taught your child the difference between right and wrong!
It all started when Robbie Richardson, a six-year-old boy from New England, joined his father, Michael, on a trip to their neighborhood car wash. Everything was going well until Michael ran through a red light, something that young Robbie was not too pleased with even though he was making a legal right turn.
In an interview with CBS Boston, Michael said that it was then when Robbie threatened to call the police:
"He tells me, 'Hey Dad, you just went through a red light.' And I said, 'No Robbie, you can go through that one as long as you stop and there's nobody coming you can go.' He says, 'No, you can't. That light was red.' So we get into the car wash and he says, 'I'm going to call the police.'"

And then once he got home, he actually did.

So what happened next? The dispatcher asked Robbie to hand the phone to his dad, and Michael - once realizing that his kid actually DID call 911 to report him - apologized profusely. Robbie - 1, Dad - 0.
The moral of the story here is that nobody like a tattletale. Unless you're a 911 dispatcher who's been otherwise pretty bored that day.

So have you ever been embarrassed by your kids on this level? Or maybe you embarrassed your parents when you were a kid?

When I was little we lived in a small village on the edge of Trier - every block or so they had public police call boxes. You pull down a lever and are immediately connected via speaker to a dispatch center, greeted with, "Hallo, Polizeizentrum..." Well, I pulled the lever and screamed, "rape, rape!!" (I was only 7, didn't know what it meant). Needless to say, both military MP'S and police responded and I was grounded for what seemed like an eternity! My poor parents...
omg that was hilarious!
my six year old nephew pressed the emergency button at his mom's work place. She said he was terrified when the armed guards showed up! He hasn't done anything like that since then
@BeannachtOraibh OMG that's both amazing and horrible at the same time lol. I bet your mom was embarrassed for an eternity.
When I was 4, I pulled a fire alarm....in a hospital. Whole place was evacuated and everything. Fire chief told my mother that they had been trying to tell the hospital that their alarm pulls were too low, and now they had something to convince the hospital to fix the problem.
