You have to appreciate that Melissa’s father wanted to let her know who the text was from but also what device it was sent from as well. Why Melissa’s dad thought this information was important, we’ll never know. What we do know is this father’s very specific text couldn’t be more adorable!
Being mindful and specific is certainly something we can learn from our parents. We wonder if our children will have the same experiences when it comes to us as we navigate the murky waters of modern tech! Who knows what it will be like in 15 or so years or how we’ll adjust…
Honestly, guys, we don't blame this dad for reading into things. We can vouch for the fact that many of our own cryptic messages can be just a little confusing. Nicole didn't give too many details about the jacket she was ordering so why wouldn't her dad assume it was being shipped as a gift for him?
Too bad he'll only be disappointed when he learns that instead of getting a gift from his daughter, it's meant for his daughter that she's sending home. An easy fix for this mess would be for Nicole to order another coat, maybe a few sizes bigger for her dad. Awkwardness averted!
Have you ever felt sorry for inanimate objects because you attributed your own feelings to them? Of course, you have! You're human and it's a common phenomenon called anthropomorphizing. So anything that's as cute as these emojis are bound to tug at your heart-string and get you as sentimental as this mom.
If emojis could talk (and had feelings) we're sure they would thank this loving mother for including them in her texts. This kid is lucky to have such a wonderful caring mother. If she cares this much about a random bunch of emojis, we can only imagine how much she cares about her family.
Today, thanks to the development of autocorrect, we could all easily write “correctly,” and yet, we don’t. Even though it's meant to help us send messages without mistakes we still somehow “misspell” and “misuse” words, ignore punctuation marks, and modify the basic rules of grammar. So is it really that helpful?!
On the other hand, without this function we wouldn't get gems like this text exchange concerning Burger King, or "Bushes King," according to this mother's autocorrect. Let's just hope that the two were eventually able to understand each other and share a "meat in a roll" meal at Burger King.
It's no secret that siblings don't always get along. Whether it's fighting over the remote control or arguing about who gets to sit in the front seat, siblings often find themselves at odds with one another. And what's worse, parents often find themselves right in the middle of it, as if they're referees closely watching a wrestling match.
What with all the squabbles and bickering it's hard to keep up so is it any wonder that parents sometimes mix up their children? Luckily for Selma (and for us), she was able to catch her parent doing so in writing. We have a feeling that ice cream was on the parents this time.
