This Grandma Inviting the “Wrong Grandchild” to Thanksgiving Will Warm Your Heart

Grandmothers across the world are well known for feeding their grandkids (sometimes too much). And when Thanksgiving comes around, you can bet that all the grandmas are bustling about in the kitchen making sure everything is perfect. So when Jamal Hinton, a 17-year-old Phoenix resident, got a text from “Grandma” inviting him to Thanksgiving, he was understandably excited.

However, he didn’t recognize the number she was texting from — or the other numbers in the group message — so he asked her to send a picture of herself. The results? Priceless. Jamal tweeted screenshots of the hilarious encounter:

It turns out she isn’t his grandma, but when he asked if he would still be welcome to grab a plate on Turkey Day, she responded:

“Of course you can. That’s what grandmas do… feed everyone.” She even included a cake slice emoji. AWWW. Everyone on Twitter (understandably) went nuts.

We so agree. Unfortunately, the Grandma of the Year had to disconnect her phone after the uncensored number went viral and she started getting contacted by tons of people who wanted in on the festivities.

We just hope Jamal still gets to go — and we get some great pictures after!

What’s the sweetest thing you’ve seen on Twitter lately? Tell us @BritandCo!
