A mum’s mistake has gone viral after a surprise visit to her daughter’s university didn’t go quite as planned. 


57-year-old Deanna Pilling travelled to Utah State University for a surprise visit to her 18-year-old daughter McKenna, reports The Mirror.

When she arrived, she found that Mckenna wasn’t in her dorm room, so got on her bed and snapped a quick selfie – this is where things began to go wrong.

She sent the pic to her daughter alongside the message: “Look where I am! Where are you?”


Slightly confused, Mckenna wrote back:

Where’s that?? I’m in my dorm. Please tell me you’re not in someone else’s dorm.

Yep, Deanna had sneaked into someone else’s room and taken the selfie on a complete stranger’s bed.

After realising her error, the mum texts back: “I am in the wrong dorm omg.” Of course, Mckenna shared her mum’s hilarious mistake on Twitter and the story has gone viral.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, McKenna said: 

Every time I refresh my feed more retweets/favourites pop up, and now all my mom has to say is: “I wish I would’ve taken a better picture.”

To think that some people find their parents embarrassing…
