TomTom phones his Mom on her mobile. He’s a bit upset.
“What’s Dad’s number, Mom?” he asks (he knows hers off-by-heart).
So Aitch gives it to him, thinking “How’s he going to remember it?”
“I’m putting it in now” he says, beeping away as she says it.
“But Tom, you can’t on a landline, it doesn’t work that way”
He was hurrying to present his case to the more pliable parent before Tobias the gardener could report his misbehaviour!
Thought he could sway Dad if he got in early.
Bad luck: He got grounded.
