Mom takes to Facebook to guilt-trip her son for not calling from college

Liam McCarney is ruing the day that his mom joined Facebook.

The Delco, Pennsylvania, native recently headed off to college for his freshman year, but the 18-year-old hasn’t been so great about staying in touch with his mom. Anne Pinto McCarney decided that she couldn’t take his absence anymore, so she turned to Facebook for a little help.

McCarney, 46, posted a video on Wednesday in which she laid the guilt on thick, using every trick in the book to make sure her son felt sufficiently guilty.

“Do you remember me? I’m your mommy. I gave birth to you,” she says at the beginning of the video. “Well, actually, I didn’t quite give birth. I had to have a C-section to get you out. Big scar and hurt like hell. But that’s OK. Do you remember that was me that gave you life?”

This mom has truly upped the ante for successful guilt trips.

There’s still no word on whether Liam has actually called his mom yet. He did, however, take to Twitter to say that his mom’s recent social-media antics weren’t surprising.
