Today, after my mom picked me up from the mall, she asked me what was in my bag from Gap. I wouldn't tell her, and she ended up grounding me. It was her Mother's Day present. FML

Then it wouldn't be a surprise anymore, would it?

A Mothers Day present on Mothers day can't be that shocking.

It's sure to leave a Gap between mother and daughter :(

@18: If OP says it's her Mothers Day gift, but doesn't say what, it'll still be a surprise. Plus OP could also say they were using a GAP bag to hold the gift and that they got the gift at a different store. Not saying anything makes OP seem a bit suspicious, even though their intentions were good.

Or OP could've actually put it in another shopping bag to hide it. If your parents are known for asking questions, don't give them things to ask questions about.

it will be because she wont have seen the actual gift

What a bitch, I agree, return everything you got for, and sneak out anyway, then when the day comes tell her what you bought her and why you returned it. Some parents are fucking useless, cant even go to the store and buy something without them prying their eyes.

We're not talking about prying eyes for a gift, OP's mother obviously just didnt trust him/her and was enough of an asshole to ground them for it.

Key words you used there, "as a kid". Her mother should know better. Whether or not they had prying eyes, adults should afford their children some privacy, and punishing them for wanting it is wrong. If my mother had grounded me in this situation I would have then handed her the bag and said "Glad it was worth it trying to make your mothers day gift a surprise, enjoy"

Exactly she doesn't deserve any gifts from anyone

All mums are crazy in someway or other

What could it possibly have been that she felt the need to ground you for it? Nuclear weapons purchased at GAP?

Sounds just like my mom. So nosy!

Why not hide the bag in the first place?

Where would she hide it exactly? Under her clothes?

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

If OP is male that would be a tad bit absurd

A better Mother's Day gift than the clothes? Pictures of her baby boy cross-dressing.

It's just drugs and alcohol, Mom. Did you expect it to be a gift for you that you want early? Dang!

What was going through her mind? Was she worried you bought something slutty at the Gap? That's not even possible.

Maybe she will unground you after you give it to her.

Curiosity caged the kid..

Show her the present on Mothers Day and watch her burn up in guilt and remorse youngling and then revel in your psychological revenge, mwahahaha.

What evil thing did she think you bought from the gap? A drug infused tee-shirt?
