A GIRL was late for school because she insisted she could do her coat up all on her own.
Four-year-old Kerry Howard spent three hours trying to do her zip up and screaming at anyone who offered to help, before they finally left the house.
Her mother, Emma Howard, said: “It’s great that she wants to be independent but I wish she wasn’t such a dick about it.
“She is happy for me to make her some juice or wipe her arse but when it comes to putting her coat on, getting into the car or doing her shoes up, she insists she can ‘do it by herself’.
“The thing is, she’s a bloody liar, she can’t do any of those things. ‘Do it myself’ actually means she’ll eventually have a massive sodding tantrum at me like it’s my fault.
“In the end, I have to tell her she can have a Jaffa Cake if she lets me do it for her.”
Kerry Howard said: “Of course I can do it myself. I’m not an idiot. I just wanted a Jaffa Cake.”
