I have never heard of such a thing before, but you can buy something called a “Kitchen Safe Mini: Time Locking Container” for $70 on Amazon. I kind of really want one, because it seems like such a “Dad” thing to own. Also, the amount of torture I could inflict on my kids with this. The joy! You place an item of theirs into the safe — like a smartphone — and you set the timer. There is no amount of begging, or pleading, or cajoling they can do to get it out, because timer locks cannot be manipulated by teenage tears!
All of which brings us to this poor, poor girl, whose father locked her phone into a timed safe. She didn’t know how it worked, however, and while she was fiddling around with it … well, just watch.
I mean, I want to feel bad for her. I do feel bad for her, but also, as a Dad, this brings me immense joy.
