Young Trouble

Dec 2, 2019

Maybe for staying out too late. Well, me and my older sister. We both stay on punishment. Being out late, that’s the only trouble that I remember. We’d be out late partying. I was about 15 or 16 years old. Other than that I don’t remember no trouble. We’d come back a little after 12 or something. I don’t remember if we had a curfew, well we didn’t follow it anyway. My mother said, “Y’all going to get in trouble.” And she’d make us stay on punishment. She would hit us! Yeah. Then we’d get grounded for a week, sometimes two weeks, if we were really bad she’d make us stay in for a month. We couldn’t go outside like that. Her punishment worked. We wouldn’t stay out late again after that. We finally learned the lesson.
