"I found this in the trunk of your car. How could you?"What was in the trunk of your car that caused so much drama?

Mom asked me holding up the bag of jeans I'd cut into all shapes and sizes. "I thought your scissors phase was done with your teen years!! These are good pants, Autumn! You can't afford to go around cutting up your jeans!" I tried not to smile because she was really working herself into a tizzy over nothing and didn't realize it.Winner: Autumn (@autumn_in_jeans)
"If they don't fit you, you could have giving them away. Or sold them at least!"
Finally I couldn't help it anymore and I burst out laughing. "Mom, mom, I love you, but you've got this wrong" I said trying to calm myself down enough to explain. "These are the jeans that no longer fit the kids or me and were way too worn out to give away. I'm using them for quilting and crafting and a few other things." I told her softening my smile a bit. "These aren't the jeans I was telling you about on the phone, these were basically trash to begin with."
I reached into the trunk and pulled out a second bag. "These are the jeans that are in good condition. I was wondering if you would want them."
Reason: Nothing like a good scolding from mom - especially when you can tell her she's wrong!
