My lovely dear mum is definitely going a bit deaf. Conversation overheard between her and my 9 year old...

DC "Granny, come here a minute, I want to show you something"

DM "Pardon?"

DC "Granny, come here, I want to show you something"

DM "Pardon?"

DC "Come here, I want to show you something"

DM "Pardon?"


DM "Of course you can have an orange"

WTAF? 😂😂😂

My mum struggles with predictive text messaging.

On the train to work, I received:
'What a sunny day. Off for a gimp!'

Much to my as well as my fellow commuters slight consternation.

When I asked her about it later, it transpired she'd intended to write:
'Off for a yomp!'
Before heading out for a country stroll.

She then asked if it was a bad idea to Internet search gimp.....

Brilliant grin laughed at both of those.

I got "fishy dead" on text from my old mum.

Predictive text.

They don't have a fish. I called her later she couldn't remember what she wanted to actually message me about smile
