The innocent auto correct has received blame for parent texting fails that have rampantly taken over the internet’s trending news for a time.
And why wouldn’t it? They’re hilarious!
I remember when my mom started texting me with IM and wondered if she understood what they mean.
But it’s not just about autocorrect or the faulty use of IM that gets us, who still belong in the younger years, laughing and screenshotting our conversations with them.
Some are just so inappropriate and embarrassing; it makes me want to hide under my blanket even if the message wasn’t for me. Cringe worthy.
I’m sure you’ve had your fair share of seeing this on the internet but humor me on this one.
They never get old!
Some do not know how to work their phones just yet
Moms are some of the worst when it comes to learning how to text. Actually, grandmas are the worst. I remember when I first tried to teach my gran how to text back in the early 2000s. Worst 4 hours of my life.
Or even the hashtags
Apparently, this mom was wrong about hashtags.
A lot of times they send the wrong message to the wrong person
This kid has been scarred for life. Wrong sent messages such as these cannot be unseen.
They ruin the surprise somehow
Probably not the best way for her to find out her boyfriend’s been in an accident, don’t you think?
Autocorrect is their best bud
Dad’s in loads of trouble after this text I’m sure!
Good call on the follow-up text, mom!
At least the kid of these parents is smart enough to put two and two together.
And sometimes they can be embarrassingly funny
Mom learned something new today, even if it was through texting fails.
This mom is clearly supportive of her daughter’s sex life.
And then they can be extremely CRUEL
If this guy was my dad, our conversations would always be dripping with sarcasm. But, seriously though, I do not need to know that he’s doing my mom.
These are my favorite parent texting fails so far.
Of course, I still am following several sites which are solely meant to exist for this purpose!
This kind of proves that technology is not for every parent. Some texting fails are just too much for the recipient to handle which might be borderline embarrassing or downright hilarious.
I’d be satisfied with the hilarious kind if you ask me.
Regardless of how epic these parents have failed in their texting, we still love them for the laughter they bring!
I wonder if any of our mommies here has made parent texting fails similar to these. Or at least, have been the recipient. Hooray for more parent texting fails to come!
