“This is your last warning,” dad recently said, and it didn’t sound like he was joking. “I’m not going to tell you again.”
According to dad, if you don’t stop what you’re doing immediately, it’s going to be bad news.
“You better stop…or else,” he clarified. “So shape up!”
Despite the “final” warning, you actually think you might have two or even three more chances before dad finally loses it.
