Pennsylvania mom’s care package reminds son of undone chore
NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - A Pennsylvania college student’s mother reminded him to take out the trash — by sending it to him in a care package.
Eighteen-year-old Connor Cox tells WHTM-TV that his mother sent two boxes to him at Westminster College in New Wilmington last month.
One contained food and other goodies. The other contained garbage.
When he called her to ask whether that was a mistake, Cox says his mother told him, “No, that’s the trash you were supposed to take out” during a recent visit home.
Cox, who has three sisters, says he doesn’t have a normal mother-son relationship, calling her his best friend and saying, “She knows what to say at the exact time she should say it.”
