With her son turning 18, an Australian mother wanted to do something special to celebrate her boy becoming a man. While he may have loved the gesture, those on the internet weren't so impressed.
The unnamed woman stuffed a glass cookie jar full of useful items such as chewing gum, a little bit of money, condoms, and mini bottles of booze. (Note: 18 is the legal drinking age in Australia.)
Sharing photos of the gift to a Facebook message board, many of the comments called the present "inappropriate," "weird," and "distasteful".
Clapping back, the mother replied, "I didn't think I would get this much hate from so many prudes." However, there were a few fans, mostly dads, who replied with praise. One wrote it was "awesome yet simple," while another admitted he would steal her idea.
