Meet Connor Cox, a freshman at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania. Last month, the 18-year-old received a care package in the mail from his mom but was shocked to find only trash inside.
The teen says: “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. It was a bunch of trash, tissues [and] soda cans.” Cox called his mom, Terri, back home in Leonardtown, Maryland, to ask if she had sent him the wrong package.
She told him: “No, that’s the trash you were supposed to take out.” Cox – who is studying criminal justice – thought his mom’s prank was hilarious, so he tweeted about it.

The college student adds that he and his mom had a good laugh about the whole thing. Cox explains: “She has a good sense of humor. She’s always really caring and she knows what to say at the exact time she should say it. She’s a good mom.”
