Today, my son volunteered to help me cut out coupons. When I got to the register at the store, I noticed he'd cut off all the barcodes. FML

I'd need to know your son's age before I pass judgment.


Plus coupons are just a marketing scam to get people to buy overpriced items, he's really doing you a favor!!!

It's the thought that counts really. Most sons avoid their parents.

Maybe he's secretly keeping them for himself

He wants a couple cents off a box of tampons? Lol that and fruity pebbles.

Maybe he's the next generation Extreme Couponer.

No I think they are saying she should have checked before getting to the store

Thats exactly what #3 is saying, negative votes for no reason.

If you want to do it right, do it yourself.

Don't you mean "If you're good at something, never do it for free"?

"it's not about the money, it's about sending a message"

I see you coupon cutting out coupons, but discount work without the barcodes. On a more serious note, you might want to check with your son or at least watch him when he cuts the coupons for you. Just in case.

Am I the only one that has no idea what you're talking about

I don't see the problem, I honestly don't. I thought this one really well through before posting and yet I am still greeted by down rating demons. The first part was a pun( apparently a fail) while the second part was some advice for OP. I hope I do get better at this commenting thing sometime soon.

I got the pun, it just took me a while to figure it out probably like the people who thumbed you down. If you want to improve your pun skills, you should read some of Pleonasm's comments or other people like that. Pun masters. They get thumbed up more often than not!

Ill pay more attention In pun class. Thanks for the advice :)

Take it out of his pocket money, will teach him a lesson. Never go full retard. NEVER

It depends on the age if her child. He may have been too young to know what he was doing

I'm sorry grammar nazis are annoying but IT will... And what the hell is full retard?

Why would she blame her child for trying to help her ? mistakes happen.

26 Its a reference to Tropic Thunder. I recommend it.

FYL, but you have to remember, it is the thought that matters.

Isn't it if you want it done right do it yourself?

Actually 48, that is how the saying goes

52- I was replying to someone elses comment and hit the wrong comment. Sorry guys. Please forgive me.

He didn't want you registering with Satan and the Secret World Shadow Government. That's who uses barcodes!
