A student received a parcel filled with rubbish from his mother.
Connor Cox, 18, thought his parent had made a kind gesture when he received a large box with his address in her handwriting on it, but was surprised to find the package contained all of the rubbish he had left in his room at home, which he had promised to get rid of during his holiday.
The teenager took to Twitter to share his upset, and posted a picture of the box with the 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. (sic)."
And Connor's sister, Mackenzie, has revealed their mother was "very proud" of her idea.
She tweeted: "@thedeal_5 Actually it was the trash you left on your floor. she was v proud of herself hahaha (sic)."
