# errors.add("phone_number", "has invalid format") unless phone_number =~ /[0-9]*/

# unless valid_discount?(membership_discount)
# errors.add("membership_discount", "has expired")

# def validate_on_update
# errors.add_to_base("No changes have occurred") if unchanged_attributes?

#
# person = Person.new("first_name" => "David", "phone_number" => "what?")
# person.save # => false (and doesn't do the save)

# person.errors.on "last_name" # => "can't be empty"
# person.errors.on "phone_number" # => "has invalid format"
