One mother's "official" note notifying her family that the living room is closed until Thanksgiving has gone viral thanks to her son. 

Nick Denbow called his mom out on Twitter on Nov. 5 after he discovered the room taped off with a note written with a black Sharpie demanding "special permission" to sit on the couch or walk on the spotless carpet. 

"Only after the following conditions have been met" will this mom "consider" granting access to her son:

  • "You have showered and are dirt and odor free from top to toe."
  • "You are wearing freshly laundered clothing."

Oh, and don't even think about eating or drinking anything in the immaculate room, she wrote. 

"Okay how my mom just gonna close down the living room for a month ??" her son wrote on Twitter. 

Well, our guess, Nick, is what mom, the "payer of the bills, chauffeur, queen of the castle, person ruining your life, bossy [expletive] in charge," says goes or no turkey and stuffing for you.
