Grandma Leaves Thanksgiving Invite Open Even After Realizing She Texted A Stranger By Accident
We can't get enough of this story.Christasia Wilson 2016-11-18
In the midst of finishing up the guest list, and finding stretchy pants for Thanksgiving dinner, here is a story that proves grandmas are still the best people on Earth.
Last week, 17-year-old Jamal Hilton from Arizona received an accidental text about Thanksgiving dinner plans. Confused by all the numbers in the group text, Hilton asked for the names behind the numbers.
The first response was: Your grandma.
Hilton told Buzzfeed, “I really thought it was my grandma so I had to ask for a picture to make sure.”
Turns out the photo of “grandma” was not Hilton’s actual grandmother.
Little did grandma know, she had texted the wrong grandson. Hilton could not stop laughing at the text accident, and he sent a selfie back. He asked if the invitation was still open and “grandma” gave the best response when caught in #textgate.
“Of course you can…that’s what grandma’s do, feed everyone,” said grandma.
The “grandma” named Wanda should make an extra plate, since Hilton plans on stopping by if the invitation is still on the table.
A friend of Hilton’s posted the text exchange on Twitter and within hours it went viral.

Unfortunately grandma had to change her number after the internet got ahold of it. She might not be involved in anymore #textgates after this incident, but it was the sweetest thing while it lasted.
The grandson, Brandon, whom Wanda was actually trying to reach contacted Hilton to coordinate Thanksgiving plans. His girlfriend, Amanda, told Buzzfeed, “[Brandon’s] family is pretty amazing, even if it’s your first time meeting them. They adopt you into the family immediately.”
Now we just have to wait for grandma to make the final call on the guest list for Thanksgiving. Hopefully Hilton made the cut.
Do you think it’s too late to ask her for our own invitation?
