The Plaintiff

Case Summary


"Thanks to his rubbernecking, Greg is involved in a near car accident. Bobby blabs, and Greg is prohibited from driving the car for a week. Greg finagles himself a loophole in Mike's directive and finds himself in deeper trouble. Greg reasons to his parents that he didn't follow the punishment because of its ambiguity, resulting in an "exact words" agreement when it comes to rules and chores. Greg soon learns that sometimes rules, punishments, etc. are meant to be ambiguous ... but only after he and girlfriend Rachel are swamped with frogs at the drive in!"
