One girl, who goes by the name of Lily, recently resorted to extreme measures to find out exactly what her parent's had in store for her upcoming festivities.
Her brilliant idea? A forged letter from her Dad to her Mom asking her to remind him what they got her.
"Dear wife," she begins. "What did you get Lily for a surprise again. I forgot."
She then proceeds to leave a space for her mother's response before signing off with, "Love: Don."
The image was uploaded to Reddit with the accompanying caption, "Seems legit," by someone who we can assume is her father.
Word to the wise: Use email next time, Lily, no traces are left behind.
