Spring Break Vacation.They could not miss any days of school and you left a few days early with the younger children.
You have shipped all the luggage in advance.
The children have around their necks ID pouches with a copy of their Passports, $50.00 cash each for food and emergency and a copy of their tickets and Boarding Passes.
They are brought to the airport directly from school with their backpacks and are clear that their mother will meet them on the other side of their direct flight.
They both have cell phones.
Now when they check in they decide to spend $25.00 each and check their backpacks instead of carrying them to the gate. That leaves them with $50.00 for food and drinks. They board the plane with $10.00 remaining for emergency.
I NEED YOUR HELP. The question is not just should they have checked the backpacks, its should they have used $50.00 which is a lot of money for the convenience of not carrying their school backpacks to the gate. Basically they were travelling on their own so should this be a good time to teach a lesson or should I just be happy that they arrived safe.
Answer the poll below on whether or not they should be responsible for the $25.00 each for checking their backpacks or carrying them to the gate.
