Nan Accidentally Invites Stranger To Thanksgiving Over Text

Typically, nans aren't great with technology. My nan, for instance, often comments on my Facebook posts IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

'MEL DID YOU SEE THAT DOG VIDEO HA.HA.HA. HE REMINDED ME OF THAT DOG FROM THE PARK. LET ME KNOW HOW YOUR DOING LOVE U NANXXXXXX'.

You'd think by the ripe-old age of 85 she'd know the difference between 'your' and 'you're', but I guess she grew up in a time when you wouldn't be publicly vilified for using the wrong one.

But, bless them, the grey generation are coming to terms with a technology that's completely new to them. They know more about tax returns and boilers than you'll ever even consider.

This lovely nana texted (who she thought) was her grandson.

Side note: this nan's use of emojis is pretty impressive

Oh bless her. She didn't even seem shocked that she was texting a complete stranger. Her nan instincts kicked right in and she offered him a seat at their Thanksgiving table. Plus, a cake emoji.

Holy shit does that mean there's cake?! I want in.
