One Day Shopping...

Submitted By:smarty_blondy
Fun:** (1.72)
Difficulty:*** (2.13)

Sunday afternoon, Lara had some free time and some money and decided she wanted to go shopping. After about an hour, she called her mother.

"Mom, it's getting dark and I have no more money. Please come and pick me up!"

But Lara didn't buy anything. Why did she say she had no more money?


Time is money!

Instead of saying "I have no more time", she replaced "time" with "money" and said, "I have no more money."

It may have been a bit easy, but I still enjoyed it. Sounds just like a teenager! Money and time to spend it! Good job smarty! :lol: :lol: :wink:

Posted by smarty_blondy08/22/05
:cry: Thank you but apparently no one likes my teaser, they all vote "no fun" on it :cry:

Posted by smarty_blondy08/23/05
Hmmm... much honesty around here... well, i'm glad you speack your mind instead of going "oh super-duper teaser" and vote "boring" on it. I like this teaser, but I admit i have better ones indeed :D

ok... :-?

Posted by yourmom010108/23/05
Just one question- Why?- Why would anyone say that. :roll:

Posted by swithie08/23/05
Sorry but, I've read it a few times but still don't get it. Can someone please explain?

Posted by smarty_blondy08/24/05
I'm happy to explain :D Time=money, like in the proverb, just like 2=2 let's say. So you "can" replace the words "time" and "money" in a sentence, without changing it's meaning (metaphoricaly speaking)

Posted by Pelikan08/24/05
i didnt get was still quite good tho! made me smile...! :lol: :wink:

Posted by smarty_blondy08/24/05

Posted by Iamthedude5432108/28/05
At first I thought someone stole her money, but then I read again and realized what really happened. Good teaser. :)

Posted by Celanba09/03/05
It makes sense, but I didn't really like it. :-? :-? :-? :-?

Thank you for your comment and for checking out my teaser. :wink: :D

I thought she forgot her money at home. :wink:

Posted by smarty_blondy09/25/05
:lol: As a teenager, that would be a very low posibility. :lol: Thank's for checking out my teaser! :wink:

Posted by Swordoffury139209/30/05
I like mostly all of your other teasers. This one could definately be considered a "blue period" teaser. Anyway, keep the teasers coming and try a little better next time. :P FYI: I think the reason most people have voted low for this teaser is that it is very unlikely that someone would say something like that.

Posted by smarty_blondy10/01/05
Thank you for your comment and for the time you put in reading my other teasers as well. Thank you for your opinion as well, i apreciate it. :)

Posted by jannie_delta10/16/05
I think maybe this would do better as a language teaser... because although I get it, I don't see where the trick is. *shrugs* I like it. :D :D

Posted by smarty_blondy10/16/05
Hmm... i'm not really sure about language, but i'm glad you like it. :D

Posted by ElectricYou10/24/05
I was thinking taxi

Posted by xmadnetx10/25/05
:roll: :roll: :roll: :o

Posted by bookworm9111/10/05
i thought she spent all her money ona taxi. then she had to call her mom to pick her up because she couldnt get a taxi.... :oops: o well since when have i had a brain for teasers??? good one. :D

Posted by smarty_blondy11/11/05
Don't worry, it happened to me cmany times, too. Glad you like it. :D

Posted by scm1411/19/05
I was thinking that she spent all her money at the arcade!!! Not one of your best, smarty! :-? I love your other ones, though! :D

Posted by smarty_blondy11/19/05
Thank you, i'm glad you like my others. Well, not one of my best indeed. :P :lol: :lol:

Posted by rkaaland12/01/05
Went with the Taxi :lol: :D

Posted by smarty_blondy12/02/05
Don't worry, many did. Thanks for the comment! :D

Posted by Mogmatt1601/07/06
That was so lame, I can't even bring myself to vote on it's difficulty.

Posted by smarty_blondy01/08/06
Thank you for your comment -- maybe I can interest you in some of my other teasers? :D

Posted by Vigo9503/27/06
i thought the answer was that she hadn't made any money while she was out therefore she had no MORE money ... than she did to begin with :D

Posted by smarty_blondy04/09/06
Although it states Lara had "some free time and some money", that's an interesting solution. Thanks for the comment! :D

Posted by Smart_Alex04/25/06
I thought she used all her money to ride the bus there, but had no more left to ride home.

Posted by akl2107/12/06
I thought she got mugged by some gang.

Posted by akl2107/12/06
But overall, it wasn't too bad. :wink:

Posted by Hrsemn406/11/07
Oh I get it, you forgot to mention that Lara was a flippin' idiot... Lame teaser, walk away...

Posted by scallio09/11/07
Other possible answers: -She donated the money to the Salvation Army bell ringer bucket -She gave it to her friend to spend -She put it in a birthday card and mailed it to her niece How could anyone come to the conclusion listed as the correct answer? Sorry, not trying to be negative... just wasn't possible to answer. You might ask a friend or family member to proof read before submitting. Then you could keep your :D rating higher! I appreciate the effort though.

Posted by scallio09/11/07
By the way... love most of your teasers. I remember you had a couple great logic-grid teasers (my favorities!). :D

Posted by lmurray09/16/07

Posted by drickanderson09/22/07
I thought her 'some money' was a quarter, and she used it to call her mom.

Posted by 1smart_okie11/04/07
I thought she went in with no money! :oops:

Posted by snappytom12/25/07
Go smarty blonde!!!!

Posted by luckylefty03/23/08
Or she could've gotten robbed or she lost it or she lent it to friend or.......

Posted by annvie903/31/08
I thought that she spent money on the phone booth, until I saw the hint. :D

Posted by braingle10004/30/09
sorry, I didn't liike it. :(

Posted by Quickq05/10/09
Okay. this teaser wasn't too bad, but it had 2 flaws: 1.Too many possible answers :x 2.Too obscure :-? The teaser should have been rephrased and put as something like 'She entered with £100 pounds and still had £100'. :) Overall:5/10. Not too good, but not too bad either. :wink: :-?

Posted by sashomarine06/04/10
Agree's with ^^^

Posted by gooberbaby112/12/10
I didn't get it. :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Posted by wolvesstar9710/17/11
