Whichever parent it was that first came up with the idea of having a family group chat has a lot to answer for. Mostly, it's just so annoying as you have to deal with the inane conversations your mum is having with your sister about what time she got home last night, occasionally though, it can be terrible for a whole different reason.
Nineteen-year-old Kyle Hendry, from Fife, found out first-hand the perils of a family group chat when he was caught up in his parents' flirty iMessage chat.
As the entire UK took a battering from Storm Doris last night, Kyle's dad asked his mum if the snow was deep where she was. His mum answered 'about 3-4 inches' (can you see where this is going?) prompting his dad to ask: 'what about the snow?' Classic.

Although, probably not something you really want your mum and dad to be joking about in front of you.
Kyle shared the exchange on Twitter where it's racked up 13,000 likes and been retweeted over 2,000 times.
Dad's love group chat banter
Kyle isn't the first lad to be shamed in a family group chat. Patrick Hoban got the piss taken out of him by his own dad after he shared two photos of himself - one 'with a hoodie underneath' and one without.
His dad wasted no time in responding:
But he wouldn't leave it there, because that wouldn't be dad banter enough, would it?
He went ahead and did this:
Well played, Mr Hoban.
