'We're in so much trouble': Mom and daughter hilariously give each other the same gift.

Meet the Rice family. They live just outside Jefferson City, Missouri.

Not too long ago, they suffered a devastating loss.

Their family dog, Remington — "Remy," for short — passed away.

As anyone who's lost a pet knows, Remy's departure was very tough for the Rice family. So, hoping it'd put a big smile on her mom's face, Natalie decided to get another puppy for the family as an early Valentine's Day gift: Paisley, an adorable blue heeler.

As it turned out, however, Natalie's mom had a similar idea in mind.

In an adorably candid video, Natalie and her mom surprise each other with their new family dogs.

"Happy early Valentine's D—" Natalie begins before seeing that her mom also had a dog in her hands. They both stare at each other, thunderstruck.

It's definitely worth the watch (story continues below).

"Oh my God," Natalie captioned the hilarious video, noting her dad was "going to kill [her and her mom] .... '[W]e're in so much trouble.'"

Not that much trouble, though. The family decided to keep both Paisley and her new brother, Rocky.

Natalie's video has since gone viral, amassing a whopping 63,000 retweets and over 220,000 likes. Clearly, the Rice family's story struck a chord with thousands of people online.

"It's been so crazy!" she explains, in response to all the love the video's received. "I don't know what to feel."

Though Remy will always hold a very special place in her heart, Natalie noted: "Getting a new animal does not replace another."

But it looks like Paisley and Rocky will usher in a wonderful new chapter of belly rubs and afternoon naps at the Rice household.

Welcome to the family, guys. ❤️

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

You know that feeling you get when you walk into a classroom and see someone else's stuff on your desk?

OK, sure, there are no assigned seats, but you've been sitting at the same desk since the first day and everyone knows it.

So why does the guy who sits next to you put his phone, his book, his charger, his lunch, and his laptop in the space that's rightfully yours? It's annoying!

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
