A few weeks back I came across a funny ecard on facebook, so I shared it on my wall.
I believe my caption was “Glad I’ve been good”. My mom saw the post and commented saying something along the lines of “I’m sure you’ll get a CD”. I responded with “Mommmmmmm. Noooooooooooo!”.
Fast forward to yesterday. I received my Christmas package in the mail from my mom. In it, was a present from “Santa”.
And yes, I am 32 years old.
I burst out laughing because, if you can’t tell by the picture, it’s very CD-shaped. So I took a picture, posted it on facebook and tagged my mom to get a reaction out of her. I also tagged “Nickelback sucks A$$” in the same picture.
All at the same time, my mom sends me an email:
Mom: The package is at your front door.
TWG: Thanks – I got it!
Mom: You can open the one from Santa…
TWG: I’m pretty sure I already know what it is.
TWG: … … I tagged a picture of you… (keeping in mind this was all in the FB inbox)
Mom: You did! LOL
*she calls me because emailing isn’t good enough*
Mom: I saw your picture! It’s cute!
TWG: Thought you’d like it.
Mom: But how do you know what it is??
TWG: Did you see who else was tagged in the photo?
Mom: No…. … hold on, I’ll look … … …. Nickelback Sucks… Oh.
I could hear the disappointment in her voice.
Not only is “Santa” an asshole, I just ruined Christmas for my mother. Shit.
