He's on the computer. I'm cooking tea but Pringles are so moresome. grin

He'll know though. He'll just see the tubes been opened and then call me a hypocrite. Which is so so true.

Perks of being a grown-up.

What you need to do is only open the foil a little bit and ease out the Pringles then put the plastic lid back on. I do this a lot (obviously) and no one notices

YANBU. You are an adult. He is a child.

He'll just see the tubes been opened and then call me a hypocrite.

Then tell him not to be so cheeky and punish him by finishing the pringles yourself. wink

That's sneaky muskey

I got caught out on the Pain Au Chocolat last night. But I did tell him they wouldn't last a day.

Life is way to short not to eat Pringles when you have them in the house

But if its tea soon why do you need pringles?

Because they're Pringles?

Of course, you need to teach your kid to be healthy but do whatever you want yourself. Also pringles are irresistible unless you leave them in the shop.

Yanbu. You need to check them before giving to pfb don't you?

that is very unreasonable!! i would eat the whole tube and then claim a badger has entered the house and eaten them ...grin

My husband peels the paper seal partially off, eats the Pringles, then puts the plastic lid down over the paper lid. To the casual observer, the can appears unopened. It causes me a lot of annoyance, but it might fool your son. smile

You're just checking to see they're not poisoned. For his benefit of course.
