Being a single mom can be tough, especially when you're trying to make every dollar count. One mom, who we'll call 'Savvy Sally', thought she had the perfect trick to maximize her kids' zoo experience. She told her children, Emmi (6f) and Oscar (8m), that they needed 'tickets' to play on the playground, especially at places like the zoo and museums where admission is expensive. But when a well-meaning zoo worker exposed her little white lie, things took a dramatic turn. 😬🎢

Savvy Sally vs. The Zoo Worker: Who's Right? 🤷‍♀️

Savvy Sally thought she had the perfect trick to make her expensive zoo trip worthwhile, but a well-meaning zoo worker exposed her little white lie, causing quite the drama. Sally confronted the worker, insisting she should've kept quiet about the playground being free. Now, with her mother's disapproval and the internet weighing in, Sally's left questioning her actions. Let's dive into the top responses from the internet for your pleasure. 🍿📱

"YTA. Worker was just doing her job, it's not her fault."

"YTA This woman was not a mind reader, she had no way of knowing that you told your kids it cost money to play on a playground. It may seem obvious to you but it may not seem obvious to others. It is not common to lie to children about having to pay to go to a playground, so why on earth would she assume that's what you had done? Really, they are six and eight years old, it was only a matter of time before they found out playgrounds are free. I had my kids convinced for a long time that the toy/candy vending machines at the grocery store were broken, but eventually another parent busted me by generously giving my kids quarters and showing them how they worked while I was paying for groceries." 😱

"YTA, parenting is hard, its neat you found an easy way out but all good things come to an end... how long did you think you were going to get away with that? That poor lady was probably so happy to let your kids know they were allowed to play! It's time to start setting real boundaries and not taking the easy way out. You've not done anyone any favors acting that way." - A wake-up call for a parent taking shortcuts 😱
