One the for the writer's notebook

This afternoon I was passing a house where two small boys were climbing on the fence in the front garden.

Their mother came out and the following dialogue took place.

MOTHER: Don't climb on the fence.

FIRST BOY: Why not?

MOTHER: Because your father put it up and it's very likely to fall down.

This sort of thing happens to people like Alan Bennett all the time.
