Granny Invites Stranger To Thanksgiving After Text Flop
Like most old people, grandmas tend to be a little out of the loop when it comes to using the latest technology.
It's no secret that grandmas are sweet, gentle creatures who descended straight down from Heaven to make the world a better place.
Yep, I think most people would agree that there's no type of love that can compare to the feels you get from your dear, adorable gram.
Recently, 17-year-old Jamal Hinton learned just how kind grandmas can be when he got a text message from a random number on November 15.
Apparently, the Phoenix-based teen was included in a group text message in which he received an invited to Thanksgiving dinner along with two other people, “Amanda” and “Justin.”
Since Hinton had no idea who any of these people were, he responded by asking the sender to identify himself or herself.
Things got even more confusing when Hinton got a reply from the mysterious sender that said, “your grandma.”
Hinton told BuzzFeed News, “I really thought it was my grandma so I had to ask for a picture to make sure.”
But it turns out that Hinton was very wrong.
After receiving the photo of "grandma," he quickly realized this lovely old lady was not his beloved grammy.
Instead, she was another grandma who simply texted Thanksgiving plans to the wrong number.
Hinton actually found the whole thing to be pretty hilarious and responded to the woman with a selfie to let her know that she had texted the wrong number.
Plus, this guy clearly has a good sense of humor because he asked his not-grandma if he could still come to dinner.
That's when this woman did the most grandma thing ever and invited him to Thanksgiving anyway, saying, “Of course you can. That's what grandmas do.”
After receiving this touching Thanksgiving invite, Hinton decided to share the conversation with his not-grandma on Twitter.
The tweet has since gone viral, and now people are losing their minds over this sweet exchange.
A lot of Twitter users can't handle the adorableness of this granny's generosity.
Because let's be real, this grandma is basically the cutest thing that ever happened to Thanksgiving ... or wrong texts for that matter.
Many people are saying that they want Hinton to follow through with the dinner plans.
Not to mention, share some pictures of him hanging out with this new grandma BFF.
Unfortunately, Hinton accidentally put his not-grandma's phone number on blast when he tweeted their convo.
So now grandma is probably going to need a bigger table to accommodate all of the randos who are texting her for a spot at dinner.
Like this person, for example.
But hey, the more the merrier, right?
Hinton told BuzzFeed News that he's actually totally down to have diner with his not-grandma if the invitation still stands, and he's already texted her back to coordinate legit Thanksgiving plans.
