…well, not without facing arrest:
A British couple were arrested for abandoning their teenage son while on holiday in Majorca after he refused to go home.
The pair, who have not been named, were arrested for child abandonment after leaving the teenager at their holiday hotel when he refused to board a bus with them to the airport.
How old was this poor delicate helpless little child?
Old enough to have sex in Spain, yet not old enough to be left without mummy & daddy’s hand to clutch if he has a tantrum…
Sentencing judge Catalina Mulet, summarising the events leading to their detention, said: “It’s been proven that the accused were preparing to take a bus around 9am on Wednesday from their hotel where they had been on holiday to the airport for a return flight to the UK with the rest of their family.
“When the eldest of their children refused to return home, the accused decided to continue their journey home and got on the bus.
“They left their son in the hotel despite the fact he now had no accommodation there and they hadn’t entrusted his care to an adult or given him the means with which to look after himself.
“The accused were arrested the same day at Palma Airport and their son handed over to the authorities for his protection just before midday.”
And we wonder why we are raising a generation of spoiled brat kidults who refuse to believe there’s any such thing as consequences…
