6-Year-Old Boy Calls 911 On Dad For Running Red Light
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?

@BeannachtOraibh I feel like my dad was always that way too. He'd think it was funny more than anything else.
