Son Thinks Mom Sent Him A Care Package. When He Opens It? Unbelievable!

A college student got the surprise of his life when his mother sent him a mysterious box, which he thought was filled with caring essentials from.


But unfortunately for him, there were no yummy treats or gifts intended for the eighteen-year-old student of Westminster College named Connor Cox but rather a box full of rubbish.¬†Upon leaving home after winter break he apparently left his room in a disgusting state. It was then that Terri, Connor’s mom, had the idea. She collected all the rubbish he had left in his room and placed it in the box, shipping it off to her son to prove a point.

According to an interview held between Teen Vogue and Connor, he said initially he was absolutely thrilled when he first laid eyes on the package. He continues with; ‘Then I opened it and realized what it was.” Obviously impressed with his mother’s joke, he shared a picture of what she had done on his Twitter profile. He explained his caption; ‘Thought my mom was sending me a care package… but instead she sent me a box of trash I was supposed to take out,..'”


The rubbish consisted of lots of plastic wrappings, a candy wrapper and a soda can. Elaborating a bit more on the story and making sure that everyone knew just how dirty her brother was, his sister explained that the rubbish was not solely from the rubbish bin in his room but also all around his room, including the floor. Stating; ‘Actually it was the trash you left on your floor. she was v proud of herself.’

In all good taste, there is no bitterness between mother and son. Connor was reported to have phoned his mom very soon after he opened the package. Saying that they ‘shared a laugh’ over her little prank and evident wit. Connor continued by saying; ‘My mom has never done anything like this before, but she has a great sense of humor so it didn’t particularly surprise me.’
