to be fair, some places do take expired coupons. I used to work for a guy who would. his opinion was: if they expire, they're not doing their job and getting you in the door. but since it was a franchise, he didn't print them.

And Bed Bath and Beyond takes expired coupons too. It doesn't matter how long it has been expired, they take it...or the one my mom shops at in Mount Vernon does at least...But the wording on that question...that makes it sound like they're talking about food expiring.

Wait, what happened to the rest of my comment? I typed out a good length out and felt good afterwards and everything. Goes to show that typing on your phone isn't perfect. My apologies.

I work at bed bath and beyond and we accept expired coupons. we pretty much ignore the expiration date. I've seen people bring coupons in up to 8 years old

I work at Burger King and I've seen a couple coupons from the 80s before. And yes, my manager accepted them. I don't know why you have coupons from 30 years ago though.

Some of the coupons from back then had no expiration dates. My grandmother used to have a whole folder of coupons like that. Putting dates on all coupons is mostly a recent thing. On the note though of accepting expired coupons, at my store i would sometimes accept them if they were only about a day over and if we had yet to send in that weeks coupons to corporate. Bc really in that case who really knows which day you got it ? But we would get in trouble with corporate for accepting coupons way passed the date bc the companies wouldn't reimburse the cost of over date coupons. But there were a few bitches i wouldn't make exceptions for, and those were the extreme couponer assholes who went out of their way be as hateful and rude to you as possible when they came in buy their 50 tubes of toothpaste and 30 bottles of shampoo. I don't know why but extreme couponers were always the most hateful customers in the store (and that was saying something) .

That's not stupid at all. Many stores and restaurants have the policy of accepting all coupons, even expired ones. The Chik-Fil-A in my home town has that policy.

Even if this was a valid question as those above me claim, she should've worded it differently, perhaps "Will you accept a coupon after its expiration date?" It sounds less stupid.

I don't see how that's a stupid way of wording it. If the restaurant accepts the coupon after the expiration date, then it's always valid. Besides, the phrase was not in quotes, therefore that's OP's own paraphrase. We don't know how the customer actually worded the question.

It just seems stupid to me to ask if "they expired on the expiration date printed on them." True, it's a paraphrase so it may not be totally accurate, but phrasing it that way sounds as if the lady doesn't know what an expiration date is.

Some people don't understand. A woman told me off once because we wouldn't accept her expired coupon. The coupon was for a totally different restaurant and she demanded that we accept it.

Oh I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that she was the one who showed the world that we're capable of sticking our tongues out our mouths Plus, me sticking out my tongue doesn't determine how bright I am. But thanks anyway

13 saw that 9 was going to be thumbed down into oblivion and decided to post an antagonistic comment in hopes that it'd be thumbed up. It's a phenomenon on FML known as "capitalizing on the down vote." Just kidding. Actually it isn't known as anything and I just made that up for the purposes of this comment. But seriously, that's probably what 13 was doing. Fuck I'm going to regret this comment tomorrow. This is why you don't drink on weeknights, kids.

And yet here we are, 17, with your profile picture taken off. It was Simmons's shtick to let his tongue out for showmanship. Cyrus merely did it like making a face for a silly photo and she looks stupid, especially with with her idea of twerking.
