This one great hustler mom is showing off her tricks of the trade to the world by posting this amazing photo of her giving medicine to her child. You might not even realize why we’ve called her the “hustler mom” as she is that slick.
It takes a thorough look at the photo to see that this boy is not drinking from a Pepsi can (which is, by the way, unopened), rather from a small bottle of medicine. And the boy is on the other side of it! If we couldn’t see it easily from this still photo from this side, think about how hard it was for this, obviously ill, little boy. Plus, that is one sneaky hustler mom.
Although… It looks by the expression on his face in this moment that he is starting to realize he’s being bamboozled. He’s probably thinking “I’ve fallen for it again” as you don’t become so good at hustling on your first try.
Back in the day, people used to take Coke syrup for upset stomachs, so this mom even has her backstory if the kid starts suspecting something.
Hustler mom is a real pioneer of parenting, not only is she curing her child, she is also instilling in him a distaste for what he thinks are sodas.
