How long has that “My grandma still can’t work her answering machine!” joke been going on? There’s some truth to it, though. We have to admit that some of our elders aren’t the most adept at technology, especially at an age where the most common and user-friendly gadgets are constantly updated and endlessly perfected. I can’t even understand smart phones half the time, so how does my mother fare?
But the combination of technological naivete and parental discussion is straight-up hilarious. And exchanging words via text in general is a new form of communication that parents may not be hip to just yet, so their advice and words of wisdom comes off funnier than ever. Click through for some texts from moms, some ridiculous and some surprisingly clever!
My mom does not have a cell phone anymore. And by “anymore”, I mean she had one for two days and didn’t understand how to use the damn thing what all the hullabaloo was about and returned it. But, Facebook is a medium she often visits and she tends to leave some rather embarrassing notes on my wall. Maybe she doesn’t realize walls are for general greetings… “Leslie, your vision insurance payment is due on the 1st, don’t forget like always.” “Leslie, thank for remembering my birthday. Get your oil changed.”
Just call me, mom. Smoochies and see you soon!
Do you text with your mom? Any choice texts that make you LOL?
