College care packages can be the best — unless you’re Connor Cox.
The 18-year-old got a rude awakening last month when opening up his latest assortment of gifts and goodies from his mom, Terri.
Instead of the care package, the Westminster College freshman received a box full of garbage — which he had forgotten to take out the last time he was home.
“I got two boxes and I opened one and it had food in it and I realized there wasn’t food in the other one,” Cox told ABC News this week. “It was a bunch of trash, tissues [and] soda cans.”
Feeling gypped, the Maryland native quickly called his mom and asked her to explain.
“Did you send me the wrong package? Why did you send me this?’” Cox recalled saying to her. “”[She said,] ‘No, that’s the trash you were supposed to take out.’”
Cox, who is currently studying criminal justice at the Pennsylvania liberal arts college, posted a picture of the garbage on Twitter on Jan. 30 and it quickly went viral.
“She has a good sense of humor,” Cox said about his mother. “She’s always really caring and she knows what to say at the exact time she should say it. She’s a good mom.”
