This Mum’s Lunchbox Fail is Easy to Make Yet We Could All Relate

Picture this. You’re busy making the kids their lunchboxes and in an attempt to save time, send your daughter to the freezer to grab herself a ‘frozen juice pouch’.

Nothing wrong with this, right? WRONG!  You keep on going oblivious and send her off to school.

Then the phone rings.

This Queensland mother took to Facebook this week with a funny recap of the time she accidentally sent her 5yo daughter to school with a rather inappropriate lunchbox filler after she told her to grab a “frozen juice pouch”.

“EPIC lunchbox fail when you tell your five year old Preppie to put a frozen juice pouch in her lunchbox and you forget the other pouches in your freezer!” she wrote in a post that’s now understandably gone viral.

Like we said before, she was completely oblivious something was up until she got a call from her daughter’s teacher that she even realised there had been a mix up.  Instead of picking a frozen juice pouch, miss 5 had grabbed a frozen vodka sorbet.

“It made for a veeeery interesting phone call from the teacher!” she said.

While the mistake could have had much far reaching ramifications, the mother in question insisted the school took it in its stride and all was good.

“They were very good about it. I made light of it (it was obviously innocent on my daughter’s behalf). I apologised for not sending enough for the teachers and they just laughed thankfully.”

    If it was in a Supermarket Freezer with juices it is very irrsesposible of them. Some supermarkets sell liquoor but you have to go to a special blocked off part and pay for it in that area.
