73. My dad fined us all the time
for leaving the lights on, to not putting tools back when we were done with them (this actually elicited a much heavier punishment after the first offense), etc. I'm 44 years old and still turn the lights off and put my tools away! Those lessons really stuck. For swearing, we just got beat. :eyes: This was the same dad who would make us unstack five full cords (not face cords!) of wood, move them over EXACTLY three feet and restack them. Then come and measure and it better be right. That was for really serious crimes, though.
