Off The Hook

Back in High School, a girlfriend once told me that she hoped her father would let her off the hook of being grounded so that she could come to the dance that weekend.  I told her that if her father was using her for fishing bait as a form of discipline, 1) that definitely falls under the category of child abuse; B) I couldn't imagine how that would be a very effective way to catch fish (except maybe Tiger Sharks); and III) I would think he'd end up breaking a lot of his fishing poles that way.

She dumped me and went to the dance with Mitch Connor instead.  Some women are very touchy when it comes to the subject of their fathers' hobbies.
