Once there was a family going on a car trip. Their children were bored so they made a plan.
“Beep, beep, beep,” said the children.
“Why are you pressing the horn? There are people in front of us,” asked the wife.
“I’m not. I thought you were,” answered the husband.
There were giggles in the backseat, but they quickly stopped.
“Clank, clank, clank, clank, clank,” said the children.
“What’s wrong with the car now? Asked the wife.
The husband got out of the car. When he came back ten minutes later he could not figure out what was wrong.
“Screeeeeeech screeeeeeech,” said the children.
“Oh, no. What’s wrong with the tires?” asked the wife.
“I will check,” said the husband. “I could not find what was wrong.”
“That’s strange!” remarked the wife.
“Click, click, click,” said the kids.
“Why are you turning on the blinkers?” asked the wife.
“I am not. I will go check.” Two minutes later they were outside pushing the car because they could not find out what was wrong with the car.
