People Love These Mom Texts Accusing Her Teen Daughter Of Using Drugs


Posted on

Ashley told BuzzFeed News her mom is not typically suspicious of what her teen daughter is doing when she's not looking. She knows all of Ashley's friends and knows the people she likes to hang out with.


Ashley was at a friend's house getting ready to swim at her pool when she got her mom's text. Her friend had asked to borrow Ashley's calculator to take the SATs on Saturday.

"At first I thought she was crazy," she said. "I thought she was playing a joke on me, because my family likes to play jokes on each other. Then she sent the long paragraph and I was like, oh my gosh, she's serious."

Ashley said she bought the colorful capsules, which grow into animals in water, in the dollar section of a Target store before a Rangers game on a previous night.

"I saw them and I remember playing with them when I was little," she said.


"Why is this something we'd buy and our moms react the same way," said one person.


She said her mom thought people would laugh at her, but she's come around to the attention after reading supportive comments.

"She's fine with it now and thinks it's funny," said Ashley.
