  • If they are teenagers its because they are to lazy and they don't want all of their energy taken from them for making such a small trip.
    Small children maybe they don't know empty things belong in the trash

  • I agree with Misteh....they dont want you to see the empty box in trash and know they finished them off so quick

  • Sounds like it is time to ban the snacks.

  • Lol yep. You ask and all three, "I didn't have the last one.....I don't know who left that there." Like it's a big mystery with a 7,8,9 yr old lol.

  • I used to do that ALL the time. I didn't want to get the blame for eating the last of something!
