Weird emails/texts from your parents or grandparents
« on: July 08, 2012, 01:46:42 AM »
Someone mentioned this on TMB and I thought I would steal the idea because my mom just got real weird with it a few days ago out of nowhere.

Remembering the time you tied the lawn mower rope to the handle to keep it running and when you cut the rope the lawn mower ate it. I think u were in 8th grade.

Since my dad got a smart phone, he likes to do the NYT crossword puzzle while he's pushing the newer cattle in to feed each morning (for some reason, asking me is not cheating but googling is). It's actually not weird, but the thought of him doing the NYT puzzle from an iPhone while on horseback at 6 am is odd in a pleasant way.

My mom has never used a computer, not once. My dad does but doesn't email but does text when there is something very important to say. Here are a few gems:

"Buy lotto"
"Buy lottery tickets do not forget"

I get forwarded crazy right wing rumor emails from my 80+ year old grandmother. 

Used to get them from other distant family members, but they do not get "pass" my elderly grandmother gets...so, no more of those are sent to me.

my grandpa always forwards me the "this is america, we speak english" ones. the weird part is that he lived in brazil for 10 years and can't speak any portuguese.

Gold. My Grandma once gave us all pens for stocking stuffers that had an American flag on them and the phrase: Keep our STATES UNITED! Make ENGLISH our national language!


My 90 year-old Grandpa sends quite a bit of email, and when he does he always just puts random words in quotations. V. weird.

Quote
Dear Mr. "Nomad,"

Last night I spent getting mailing ready for this
month's  two birthdays and two anniversaries. "Whew."
But, I couldn't finalize yours.  Where in the world
will you receive "Snail-mail" on your birthday?
 ....Your Dad's solution is to just send it
to him and he'll "take care of it."  I'll plan to
mail it on the 15th ... to?

?/?/?

Love,
Grandpa

my dad loves to forward that crap like its hot. and m~y-l_a is quite a trip with texts, I feel like I need a decoder ring trying to decipher what she is trying to get across.

You're dad sounds like an amazing man who smells like leather and classic cologne. 
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Yes. He's almost annoyingly amazing and constantly smells like sun-soaked sandal wood and accomplishment. Also, he's currently working to get KARL to send a contingent to egypt while I'm here. SO MUCH PRESSURE! Are there KARL dudes on this board? Because I may suddenly have some influence.

I get a fair amount of Yahoo! news articles from my parents.

Not emails but for a while my dad thought LOL meant "Lots of Love". I'd get serious texts that always ended in LOL DAD

Grandma doesn't know how to use a computer, so that's kinda nice

That's great.  Anyone still get handwritten letters from time to time?  My mom send me one every now and then.  It warms my heart.

Dad:  Commo check.  I haven't received any test messages in awhile.
Emo EMAW:  Test
Dad:  Its working.  Thanks.  Btw, I have a FCC license to operate my GMRS walkie talkies in high power mode.  It cost me $85 for the 5 year license.

My girlfriend's mom thought and still thinks the same thing.
