It's good to pull a deluded teen down from her make-believe social media cloud and teach her that life isn't as much about strutting around in red lipstick believing you're a modern day Juliet than it is making sure the house doesn't go to s**t.
This is actually the best mom prank ever done on a cocky teenage son. Unless the girl happens to also like Justin Beiber...and LOVES guys that are into him too. But let's face it, this is highly unlikely. Good job, Mom.
Moms may act like they are oblivious to the embarrassment they cause. But, truthfully, they know exactly what they are doing. Every parent is taught before their child's birth how to humiliate them for fun because, as parents, it's one of the only perks they're going to get.
Children are dumb, there is no use in coddling them and pretending they're little geniuses. This way, when they go out into the real world, they'll be ready for rejection, failed job interviews and office politics.
You're doing the right thing, Mom, don't you worry.
Adults appreciate directness. They don't have time for reading between the lines and this mom is doing good work by teaching her son early. Hopefully he'll save himself a lot of wasted time when he's older!
