Chores for games

These days, parents change the WiFi password to keep children from playing games until they do their chores.
Back in my day, my parents would slip a suitcase padlock through the holes in my Atari’s power plug.
That way, I couldn’t plug it in until I did my chores.
So, I cut off the plug and stripped the wires and stuck on a new plug.
My dad said “Look at the kid, he was born to be an electrical engineer!”
So proud. Until I plugged the thing in and electrocuted myself.
At least I got out of doing my chores.
