Joke’s On You, Kid
In Europe, the legal drinking age is 18. So when all of 17-year-old Sam Yard’s friends turned 18, he felt pretty left out.
Desperate to join his friends for a drink, he did what any underage kid would do and bought a fake ID.
From what I hear, a “good” fake ID is not cheap, but that wasn’t going to stop Sam. So he paid his money to a “trusted” website (lol) and waited patiently for it to come in the mail.
Unfortunately for Sam, his ID never came in the mail and he couldn’t figure out why. After several emails following up with the website saying it did in fact come, he concluded that it was all a scam.
What Sam, (pictured in the red flannel,) didn’t know is that his parents have a great sense of humor.
On his 18th birthday, May 22, Sam’s parents told them they had a big surprise for him.
Tickets to a concert? A plane ticket to a tropical destination? A new car, perhaps?
Nope. His parents got him all three fake IDs that he ordered, wrapped up in a birthday card.
“They’d known the whole time,” Sam said.
My mom is notorious for opening mail that has her kid’s names on it, just as any mom is.
Not sure why Sam thought he was exempt from this unspoken rule, but he certainly learned his lesson.
You can’t outsmart your parents, and if you can, you certainly can’t get past your mom and her mailbox.
Keep up the good work Sam’s parents!
