We Can All Learn A Lesson From This Girl Who Tricked Her Mom Into Letting Her Get A Dog

Many people dream of the day that they are able to get a pet. Pets are, without a doubt, the best part of some families. But, it sucks when your parents are usually anti-getting a dog/cat. When it happens, what are you to do? Well, it turns out, there are some geniuses out there no the Internet that can teach you some pretty valuable lessons about getting one over on your parents.
Kelsey Johnstone shared the iconic story on her Twitter account of how she got her new best friend by tricking her mom into thinking her new dog was a…sandwhich. She asked her mom if she could get a “$5 footlong.” Of course, we all know the famous Subway Sandwich deal for $5. Confused, her mom asked why she would bother asking her.


As it turns out, a local shelter near Kelsey was offering a deal for $5 adoptions for dogs “12 inches or more.” So, essentially, she was getting a $5 footlong.


And, just like that, Kelsey adopted her new best friend–Bentley.


Kelsey shared with her followers that her mom was actually happy and “loves her new dog.”

But, many other people on Twitter said their parents would most likely kill them.

BRB, driving to Texas right now because I cannot pass up new pups for only $5. I’m getting 3.
