FC: The Boy Who Locked The Door Sarah Tompkins
1: It is better to wear out than to rust out. RICHARD CUMBERLAND | Once upon a time, there was a little boy. His parents had to go to work, and though he was feeling okay, his previous fever prevented his attendance at daycare. That's where I come in. I work for an agency that provides in-home care to kids that are sick, or don't have their usual care available. | THE BOY WHO LOCKED THE DOOR
2: The boy had to go to the bathroom, and trying to respect his privacy and space, considering I was a virtual stranger, I let him go by himself. I take this opportunity to note that this was an old home, with old doors...

5: So the boy was in there for quite a while, prompting me to knock, and inquire as to his activities. At first I got no response, so I tried to open the door. Privacy be damned, I was worried. The door was locked. Well, the boy absolutely refused to open the door. Not cool. I was getting fairly upset, and called the parents to find out where they kept the keys. This ended with me discovering that the house was old, and the only way to unlock the door was to do it from the inside, you know, where the uncooperative boy was? Yeah....good times. I take it as a point of my persuasive skills that he finally opened the door, though it is more likely that he finally got bored and chose to open the door on his own recognizance.
7: Without labor nothing prospers. SOPHOCLES | Soooo, when the boy opened the door....I found that he had completely covered the bathroom in his mother's maxi pads, claiming they were band-aids. Apparently the bathroom wasn't feeling very well at all..... ....anywhere... They were stuck to the sink, toilet, tub, floor, you name it. Awesome. And mister two years old and wonderful didn't want to help clean up, of course. by Sarah Tompkins
