Most of us belong to one of two main groups when it comes to our text game – the sprinters and the cross country-ers. My mum and my mother-in-law are both fairly new to the world of texting and just like their personalities, couldn’t be further apart in their style.
My mother-in-law is in the short and sharp gang. Some of her greatest hits include, “Thanks,” “Yes,” “I will” and that old-time favourite, “Ok.” No emojis, no kisses, just good ol’, one-word responses. My mum on the other hand, well, her texts go a little something like this: “Hi melissa its mum hope you are good i’m at the shop and found the cutest shoes for luca that would look great with his jeans they are blue anyway call me back when you get this message xoxoxxoxo” She hasn’t figured out how to insert punctuation or capital letters yet, but what she lacks in grammar she makes up for in detail – and lots of it.
This recent video of Jimmy Kimmel Live! having people read the strangest texts they’ve received from their mothers is pure, one-of-a-kind, mum gold. Just the thing you need to cap off a fabulous Mother’s Day...hopefully with a nice big glass of vino in hand.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there. You guys rock.
Please share the funniest text you’ve ever received from your mum!
