Why you should never send holiday pics to your mum

Rarely are mums cool. Granted, they’re cooler than dads, but that’s really not setting the bar too high. So it should come as no surprise to the poor lass who sent her mum a holiday snap that the response was...unexpected.

Caitlin Wren was holidaying in Edinburgh with her boyfriend and decided to share a photo of their nice hotel room with her mother. The picture showed a room with one bed beside a small sofa.


Rather than comment on the room, Wren’s mother came back with, "Shame Dean has to sleep on the couch. At least it's not the floor. Told you to make sure it was a twin x"


Wren took a screenshot of the conversation and posted it to Twitter where the post was shared in solidarity. 



"I think my dad has replied this exact message," one person tweeted.


Another shared: "When I went on holiday with my boyfriend my mum wanted pics of the room being two single beds (it was a double). I ignored her."


So next time you fancy showing off your hotel room to your parents, no matter your age, best make sure you’ve booked a twin.
