Grandma Accidentally Invites A Stranger To Thanksgiving Dinner

Grandma Accidentally Invites A Stranger To Thanksgiving Dinner

Grandmas are known for being loving and making the most delicious food, however, they’re also known for being pretty bad with technology.

So when an Arizona grandmother was tasked with sending out Thanksgiving invitations to her family via text, she attempted to send out a group message to make things easier for herself, but instead of sending an invitation to her grandson, she ended up sending his invitation to a total stranger.

On November 15, Jamal Hinton opened a group message from an unknown number with details about when and where to go for Thanksgiving dinner. The 17-year-old didn’t recognize the number, and asked who had sent the message. The sender replied that it was his grandma.

Hinton was still a little confused since he didn’t recognize any of the other numbers in the group message, and asked his ‘grandma’ to send him a selfie, and when he saw the woman in the photo he realized she had gotten the wrong number. He quickly informed her that he was not her grandson, but asked if he could still swing by for dinner. The grandma, named Wanda responded in the most adorable way possible: “Of course you can. That’s what grandma’s do…feed every one.”

Hinton couldn’t believe her response and a friend posted screenshots of their conversation to Twitter, and their interaction quickly went viral. “She was really nice!” Hinton said after meeting Wanda the next day. “A very funny, sweet lady.” Hinton also said that he was still going to attend Wanda’s Thanksgiving dinner and is planning on bringing pumpkin pie.
