Woman's Adorable Grandparents Wave Her Off Every Day

How ace are grandparents? They're like your parents, but without the stress. An upgrade. Parents 2.0, if you will. If you're lucky enough to still have your grandparents in your life, you should appreciate them, because they're pretty bloody special.

One woman has shared a particularly adorable little ritual her grandparents have, and it's managed to bring a collective tear to the eye of thousands of Twitter users.

Rio Smith shared a properly cute clip of her grandparents waving to her as she travels to work on a bus. Something which says they do every day.

Blink and you'll miss it, but in the clip, for a fraction of a second you can see her grandad waving, and one or both of them will do that every day as she whizzes past on her way to work. And I don't know about you, but that's just the nicest thing I've read all week.

Rio told Metro: "I'd say that they are the most genuine, caring and loving people you'll ever meet.

"They aren't like normal grandparents, they are fun and act so much younger than what they are, which is so funny at times."

N'aww, does anyone else want to go and hang out with these two now?

Since sharing the clip Rio has been inundated with tweets from people telling her how amazing her grandparents are, as well as sharing their own cute stories and it was just too much.


One wrote: "This is the cutest thing I've seen in my life. Grandparents are so so precious." While another added: "I've never wanted to hug two people I don't know more than I do right now." Yeah, mate, I'm with you on that.

One user told Rio to cherish them and she replied saying she did, adding 'they make my day'.

How heart-warming is all of this? Are you crying yet? No? Just me?
