There's always something parents can complain about, especially during back-to-school season, but one mom doesn't want to hear another negative word about shopping for school supplies. For those parents b*tching about all the items that teachers are requesting, this hysterical mom is putting them in their place. Dena Blizzard is reminding parents to buy the damn pencils because these gracious teachers are about to dedicate their time and energy to educating your wild child -- so the least you can do is buy them a box of tissues!

In a hysterical video filmed while shopping for school supplies at Target, Dena goes on a rant about why parents should happily get anything and everything their child's new teacher requested.

"Here's the thing, I've been noticing lately when people are doing their back-to-school shopping, everybody's complaining about buying school supplies," she starts. "And my thing is, listen, it's the end of August. I will give you anything to take my kids."

Dena is more than thrilled to check any item off that list because she realizes this is for the person who is going to be watching her child for nine hours a day -- and he or she deserves so much more than a pack of markers.

"You need a yellow binder? I will get you a yellow binder, I'll get you a red binder, I will tie-dye some sh*t. You take these kids out of my house and I will get you whatever you want!" she says. "These teachers have been making plans to teach your kids, and you're complaining about some pencils? Pencils! Are you kidding me? Do you know how much I would pay them just to get my kids out of my face?"

"I have spent hours of my life teaching my daughter math and history. I don't know anything about history," she adds. "There's a lady somewhere willing to teach my daughter some history? And she's asking for a yellow binder? I'm gonna get that b*tch a yellow binder."

At one point, Dena pulls over her shopping cart mid-aisle and cracks open a mini bottle of liquor from her purse to get real with everyone: "What is wrong with people? These teachers have to put up with your kids for an entire year and all you guys gotta say, 'I don't wanna buy the pencils,'" she says. "Buy the f*cking pencils!"

As funny as Dena's video is, she's not just doing it for the laughs. A 2016 study found that teachers spend on average $500 a year of their own money on school supplies for the classroom, and the financial burden is only increasing. One dedicated teacher even went viral recently for her efforts to provide for her students. She resorted to panhandling on the side of the road to raise funds for much-needed supplies.

So once you realize the importance of back-to-school shopping and check everything off your list with a smile on your face, Dena has another important request. "We need to be thanking some teachers," she says. "Stop complaining, go out and get your stupid supplies, and you need to hug a teacher on the first day of school."
