He .. that is my son never got said leife gaurd gig.. hello life guarding is the easiest job.

Now he has to pay me back.. the lovely teen age boy is doing all the laundry, dished, house cleaning, and  painting to pay me back. If he does nt he looses hos internet.  He also helps with cooking along with his sister.
