Ah, grandmothers. They just want to keep in touch with you.
As we make fewer phone calls to family, we enter into a whole new realm of hilarious texts from folks who just can’t quite get the hang of this newfangled technology.
Whether it’s an epic autocorrect fail (hey, those happen to the best of us), a talk-to-text disaster, or just plain misunderstanding of how the device works, these 55 grandmas ended up sending some seriously hilarious texts.
And some of them are probably just hilarious in person as well!
Someone is about to find out.
Watch out before she starts making up her own acronyms.
CYG – that means “call your grandma.”
But hope you had a great day nontheless!
It looks like she’s having some pet stain issues, so we hope she found a way to clean that up AND remember the difference between a text and a search.
Just know that she’s going to need to take you up on it, often. That is if she can manage to cry for help.
And get ready for baby pressure over text message.
Don’t people know better than to insult grandma in a way she can keep permanently and use to guilt you forever?
Remember that next time you post something online.
But hey, she can text AND selfie – she’s got skills!
Grandma will be happy to recount the entire conversation to you over text.
Also, she seems to think a lot of people are idiots.
Or invent a phone that can guess who you’re trying to text based on what you write.
That or grandma secretly wants to flip you off.
One thing we sometimes need to explain to grandparents is that getting random texts throughout the day can be distracting.
Next time grandma complains about how young people just don’t know how to concentrate anymore, remind her of this text.
We’re not sure if she is just as concerned with how classes went as she is with her brother’s death or if she just wanted to make sure her grandchild was there and paying attention before she dropped the news.
Luckily, this one dodged that bullet.
We just want to know what word it’s autocorrecting.
But it does seem suspicious.
Is grandma trolling the spammers or just really keen to share dog photos?
Grandma doesn’t get to make up her own.
Grandma just wants to keep you safe, after all.
Best not to ask.
But sure, just give me your printer’s phone number.
She’ll be pleasantly surprised to know she doesn’t have to send every message she types.
Then again, maybe she knows you’ll give her a better answer than the Internet.
Just remember to tell her she doesn’t have to feel scandalized by a poke if it doesn’t occur IRL.
Again, it’s time to show her that little back button with the X on it. It’ll be her best friend. And yours.
And sometimes they let you know in very strange ways.
We’re just confused as to why she thinks anyone needs to see this photo.
Sometimes an accidental text means you get some unexpected moral support from grandma.
But she might need to watch some less violent television because we’re concerned she might actually get out her crowbar.
Also, that’s a cruel yet brilliant party prank.
Second, we really want to know if cotton candy is family slang or an autocorrect.
If it’s the latter, do we want to know what she was calling Nicki Minaj?
Instead, just gear up for the challenge of deciphering one-word texts.
Grandma: Here’s what I think about everything…
But not seriously enough to name your glop.
To be fair, capital letters are a lot easier to see.
On the other hand, just how often do you have to check in before you get a guilt trip? Sheesh.
Either way, we sure hope that sweater fits.
Grandma will be thinking of you every time she sits on the toilet.
Also, does grandma realize that text messages are more private than Facebook messages?
That or she just really doesn’t want to forget to wish you a happy birthday.
We can only hope it’s the latter.
But we’d still like to know about those puppies.
Better luck next time, grandma.
Grandma doesn’t get the concept of personal choice.
Then again, once she starts she may never stop.
