There's nothing worse than getting blamed for something you didn't actually do.

That's the predicament 16-year-old Ashley Banks recently found herself in when her mother stumbled upon 'drugs' in her room.

Cue the drama.

The situation unfolded after Ashley asked her mother to go search for her calculator in her room when she was out of the house. Ms. Banks never found said calculator, however, she did find a bag full of capsules stuffed with colorful substances.

"What are these?" she asks with an accompanying photo of the pills. Without even receiving a response, Ms. Banks flies off the handle, saying, "Ashley Carol I will not have drugs in my house. Come home right now. As soon as your dad comes home from California we will discuss your consequences. As for now your [sic] grounded and you will not leave the house, come home this instant."

Just when you think Ashley's done for, she responds to her mother's text with a few laughing emojis and one simple instruction: "Go put them in water."

Following her directions, Ms. Banks submerges the candy colored pills in water to find out the shocking truth -- they turned into tiny, bright dinosaur sponges.

"Nevermind. You don't have to come home," she said.

The hilarious interaction was posted by Ashley to Twitter and has since been liked more than 40,000 times and retweeted some 30,000 times.

After the exchange was all said and done, Ms. Banks was left with just one more burning question for Ashley.

"Why in the earth would you buy these? I thought you were 16 not 7?" she asked, confused about the decision making behind the purchase.

C'mon, Mom, dinosaurs never get old!
