I'm the dish washer at our house. I was getting a lot of hassle from the rinser/quality control person I'm married to until I put a framed copy of this picture above the sink. Now, when she's criticizing my work I just nod towards this photo!
( I remember when my mother took this photo. I really did do dishes when I was six but this photo was posed. It was uncomfortable on the shins to be working like this.)

1986 or something... I was 7 and forgot to tell my mum there was a class picture taken, hence the uncut hair and an old sweater... my mum nearly got a heart attack when she saw the picture. It took her around 20 years, but now she can laugh about it

Quoting Bwest (Reply 13): I was 7 and forgot to tell my mum there was a class picture taken, hence the uncut hair and an old sweater...
I always made it a point to "forget" to tell my mother about school pictures - otherwise I would be given a "decent" haircut and be dressed up "nicely" which was usually good for receiving about a weeks worth of bullying
