This mom isn't messing around. 

Apparently fed up with her son Nick Denbow's untidiness, she posted tape blocking off the living room and a note warning him that the room is closed until Thanksgiving. 

Special permission could be granted if "you have showered and are dirt- and odor-free from top to toe," she wrote. 

Nick posted the picture on Twitter and it quickly went viral, being retweeted almost 14,000 times and liked more than 32,000 times.
