Rob was renovating when he pulled out a bag that contained McDonald's French fries. He tells the magazine "We are currently renovating our kitchen and bathroom.

When we unwrapped it and found the old McDonald's bag and fries we were very surprised and grateful that is all we found hidden. Our house was built in 1959. "It is very close to a McDonald's location that opened around then so I assume it found its way into our wall from the original builders."

My son has the family in a jam. He got into a fender bender yesterday and did not call the police or our insurance company. He accidentally backed into another vehicle so my husband wants him to say that he was hit. This way, his insurance won't go up. I think this is a horrible idea and that our son needs to admit what he did was wrong and take responsibility. My husband says I'm 'not on the team' and not doing what's best for our son, which is protecting him. I totally disagree and think he needs to learn a lesson. What would you do if you were me? What should our son do? Is my husband right?
