Texas Mother Forces Her Two Boys To Write Apology Notes For Prank Calling Police 25 Times

Prank calling somebody is something the majority of us did when we were kids. Hell, my buddy and I once prank called a woman and told her that we were from Baskin-Robbins, and if she could name all 31 flavors in 31 seconds, she would win 31 dollars. And good Christ, did we have one hell of a laugh when she started rattling off a few of them and then screamed at her husband to name some more flavors.
But it’s not very funny when you prank call the police, especially in today’s day and age, and two elementary school-aged brothers in Texas learned that the hard way when they recently made 25 prank calls to Fulshear’s finest.
According to UPI, the boys’ mother made each of them sit down and write an apology note, presumably scaring them into thinking they would wind up in the clink if they didn’t do so.
The result was hilarious:
“To the Police Department, the reasons why I called you 25 times are, because I thought that it was funny, to call you and try to send you to the wrong house, to make you think that the people in that house did it, and because I did not want to go to bed. I am very sorry for calling you all those times. Could you forgive me, and allow me to stay in this house, without sending me to jail. I promise that is never going to happen again in my whole life.”
“To the police department, I am very sorry that I called you when there wasn’t any emergency. We kept saying the wrong address to trick you. We did it because we thought it was funny. Please forgive me. I will do anything to get out of jail if you send me there. I want to stay home. I would never do that again.”
“We all make mistakes, it’s how we own those mistakes that makes us whole again,” the post read. “We commended their mom and immediately accepted their apologies. Their sad faces turned into smiling faces, as they exited the station. We have to admit we were smiling as well.”
No word as to how many dishes the boys have also done so far this summer.
