Quote from: Brinybay on January 24, 2018, 12:53:20 AMTrue story: A kid is out partying with his friends, but he's supposed to be home. His home has a phone in the living room, and an extension in the parent's bedroom upstairs. He's late, so he knows his parents are already in bed. So, he calls home, and when his mom picks it up from the bedroom, he says "I got it Mom!"

If that was the case, the "I got it Mom" takes on a whole 'nother meaning, I'm sure he got it.
