Lie Then Obey?

Fred’s mother and father were getting ready to go to dinner. His big sister was home and would be watching him. Before they left, Fred’s parents told him to make up his bed and clean his clothes off of the floor before bedtime. After they left, Fred started playing his new Playstation game and lost track of time.

After the dinner, Fred’s mother called on the phone to tell him good night. She asked him if he cleaned his room. If he said yes he would not get in trouble but would be lying. He thought, “I can clean it up really quick before they come home.”

What do you think he should do?
