Mom's dorm mix-up goes viral

Deanna Pilling says if she knew her major gaffe was going to go this viral, she would have taken a better selfie.

Here's what happened:

Mama Pilling goes to visit her daughter, 18-year-old McKenna, who's a freshman at Utah State University.

Mom surprises her at campus and sends a text from what she thinks is McKenna's bed.

It's a selfie of Deanna lying on a bed saying, "Look where I am! Where are you?"

To which McKenna responds: "Where's that?? I'm in my dorm. Please tell me you're not in someone else's dorm!"

Mom responds: "I am in the wrong dorm omg."

So far, no word on whose bed that was!

McKenna says she knew it wasn't hers because when mom sent the text, she was reading it from her bed... the correct bed.

Oh, mom.
