The Negotiator

Sam is really quite the negotiator, always trying to make deals with us to get what he wants. Sometimes it works, and he does something we want and gets something in return. And then there are those times that the conversations go in an unsettling direction:

Me: "You need to eat your yogurt, and then you can have fruit snacks."

Sam: "I won't eat the yogurt until I have my fruit snacks."

Me: "How about I just put you in time out until you have the yogurt?"

Sam: "Well, I'll put you in a house that's on fire!"
