It's a happy one, though.
YouTube user Meredith Scott, who works at a local Costco in Phoenix, was going about her normal shift when the biggest of surprises greeted her unexpectedly.
A surprise that came in the form of her daughter, who she hadn't seen in nearly six months. Both Scott's daughter and ex-husband, Carl, flew to the Valley early for a 'special' Mother's Day gift.
And did the father-daughter duo ever deliver.
As it turns out, so too did Scott's boss, who let her take the next two days off to spend with her family.
