Twitter's At War Over Girl's Reaction To Mom's Birthday Gift
No matter how much you may want to cringe when your mom does basically anything for you in front of other people, it's important to remember she's probably coming from a good place.
Plus, she's the reason you exist in the first place, so you definitely owe the woman at least a little respect.
I think someone needs to relay this message to Jenna Fluegeman, though, because based on her recent tweets, she doesn't quite seem to get it.
In honor of her 17th birthday, Jenna's mom created a Snapchat filter to be active at her daughter's school.
OK, before I go any further, I must say I am so impressed there is a mother out there who not only knows what a Snapchat filter is but also knows how to create one. Ku-freaking-dos.
Anyway, as thoughtful as the idea was, Jenna didn't really seem all that appreciative, at least according to the text conversation between her and her mom.
Twitter could barely handle how ungrateful she appeared to be.
It's certainly understandable for her to be a bit embarrassed, but the disrespect was totally unnecessary.
But, on the other hand, if all the attention was s0 embarrassing, why tweet it at all!?
It's a bit of a cliché, but seriously, you have to cherish the people in your life and what they do for you because they won't always be around.
At least some people got the memo on that.
Although, not everyone interpreted the 17-year-old girl's tweet as ungrateful or disrespectful.
Perhaps people were just jumping to conclusions a little too quickly.
Apparently, Jenna isn't the only one who would've reacted this way.
It's definitely easy to misread someone's tone over text.
I guess teens will be teens...?
Ehhhh, I'm pretty sure Jenna didn't apologize to her mom, but we'll never know for sure.
At least she did thank her, though -- or she claimed she did in her most recent tweet on the situation.
True -- you definitely can't please everyone.
But, on the other hand, maybe it's not so wise to tweet something out if you're not prepared for people's honest and legitimate responses.
You say you didn't want attention, but you sure as hell got it, girl.
