BOISE, IDâ€”A careless game of indoor football by Boise resident Martha Jurgensen’s two children caused Jurgensen to declare the last straw had been reached early this morning.
Robert, 9, and Richard, 7, were playing with a plastic football inside the house, and allegedly caused a window to be broken. “I kept telling them they were going to get a Timeout, but they kept playing!” professed the mother. Jurgensen continued, “But then they broke it! This is the last straw!”
Despite threats of allowance garnishment and restricted playtime, the children were not fazed. Robert commented, “Aw, she always says dumb stuff like that. She never does anything.”
There were no reports of camels with back injuries that could be attributed to the alleged last straw.
