When your parents are out on a holiday, you literally have the whole house to yourself. And what does that mean? Yes, it means that the time has come to switch on your party mode.
However, Grace Burton from Southampton is a woman who isn’t that lucky. Thanks to a very unique set of instructions given to her by her mother.
Her mother, who is out on a holiday, is a hardcore lover of plants and absolutely hearts her garden. And that’s exactly why she mailed her daughter a detailed list of instructions to follow while watering the garden in her absence.
Grace took to Twitter to share the mail and trust me, it speaks volumes about her mother’s concern.
From how to use the hose to the description of pots, the list had expertly explained guidelines.
She even described the way she wanted Grace to water each and every plant. She asked her to start with the plant stand in the corner, before moving on to geraniums and violas and so on.
Here is the entire post that Grace shared on Twitter.
Agreed to water my mum's garden whilst she's on holiday and she's just gone and emailed me an ENTIRE STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE. There's a FLOW CHART. I can't. pic.twitter.com/oG5yASq49N

The post went viral as soon as it was released on the micro-blogging platform with people hailing her mum as a genius. While some wanted to know what’s her mum’s profession the others couldn’t stop laughing!
I love the “thank you for your willing cooperation “ part for some reason 😂

I have noticed she had not included time for rest breaks or lunch I think you may have a legal case here 🤔

Love your mum. Genius. But I think you could go one better and return it to her with a full validation report for this procedure DQR, IQR, OQR, PQR and/or perhaps a suggestion to install soaker hoses all around the garden.

You have to love your mum! She not only created an awesome process flow chart, she also created awesome content for your twitter feed! Can't help but wonder what the rest of her routines look like…..
