When the family returned home, they began unpacking their bags. When Greg was unpacking, something fell out of his shorts. It was the missing key to the locker! He did not tell his parents, because they had already cancelled all of their credit cards and new ones were ordered. His parents had also gotten new drivers' licesnces. Greg could not decide what to do with the key. He had three choices, tell his parents, put it in the dirty clothes for his mom to find, or flush it down the toilet.
The theme of this story goes along with the saying in life, "If it's going to wrong, it will." This family's trip was nothing but one bad event after another. Every time they turned around something else was going wrong or something bad happened. There was so much bad luck on this trip, that the family would probably never take a vacation again.
