A dad frustrated at his homework-dodging son’s frequent demands to go to the loo has bought him a toilet to sit on in a bid to keep him at his desk.
The father said that every time his second-grade student son sat down for his weekend test at home, he claimed he needed a wee.
Suspecting a scam, the dad – named only as Mr Sun in local media – bought an entire loo and plumbed it in at his son’s desk at the family home in Dalian, a port city in Liaoning province, China.
But if the dad planned to embarrass his son into doing his homework, the plan backfired.
Video footage of the youngster at his desk shows he had been completely unembarrassed about his new chair.
But now he has a new homework-dodging scam to frustrate his father.
Instead of claiming he needs the loo, the lad now claims to be hungry and thirsty and demands snacks and drinks to put off his schoolwork.
