The obvious solution

Solution

So let's say you're a teen-age boy. Your parents are out of town, and you're in charge of the house. A sibling accidentally breaks a glass in the bathroom, and pieces are scattered all over the floor. Do you

a) carefully clean the glass up with a vacuum cleaner?
b) find the whisk broom and sweep the glass up?
c) pick the pieces up with your hands and use a wet cloth for the rest?

or

d) tape a note to the door explaining that the bathroom is out of order?

At least he didn't post it in Morse Code.

And the sibling (older?) didn't feel a need to clean it up either :)

This makes me laugh! But especially Sherry's comment.

oh boy! So, did you have to clean it all up when you got back? Is that the only bathroom in the house? If it is, how did they manage?

Sherry: Ha! You know my kids well.

Bardiac: I think it was an older sibling who left the glass in the bathroom, and a cat who knocked it off the counter — after the sibling had left. Or something like that.

Lilian: To be fair, it did seem like he'd made an attempt to clean up the glass but left the sign as a warning because he knew he hadn't done a very good job.

Hah! "glass sensitive"

Well, if the cat broke the glass, isn't it fair to leave it for the cat to clean it up?

(Word verification is "perro" - but it should be el gato, not el perro...)

Bwahahahahaha!

gotta give a few points for the sign, and the rudimentary effort at cleanup. (but the sign is very funny.)

That? Is hilarious.

This happened in our family. But it was vomit, not glass. That was a real pleasure to come home too.

I think your sons are funny and that you're a very good sport.
