Grandma Texts Wrong Number, Ends Up Inviting New Guest to Thanksgiving Dinner
Viral| | By Margo Gothelf
New phone, who dis?
When Jamal Hinton received a text from an unknown number inviting him to Thanksgiving dinner, he was a little confused. Hinton had been added to a group text with two unknown numbers, yet when he asked who it was, the number replied, “Your grandma.”
“I really thought it was my grandma so I had to ask for a picture to make sure,” Hinton told Mashable.
However, the picture that appeared on his screen proved right away that this was not his grandma. Hinton then sent back his own selfie proving she had the wrong number.
Regardless of not being Hinton’s grandmother, the teen still asked if he could “get a plate” on Thanksgiving.
“Of course you can. That’s what grandmas do…feed everyone,” she wrote back.
Hinton’s friend Ronald got a kick out of the whole ordeal and shared a screenshot of their texts on Twitter.

However, the viral fame got a little out of hand when Hinton left her number in the screenshot. Many people have now texted her asking for an invite to dinner as well!

Hinton was able to keep in touch with his new grandma after she changed her number and now plans to stop by on Thanksgiving.
“Me and her talked. She changed her number people were blowing up her phone with inappropriate things, but I am in contact with her daughter and grandson,” he said. “I plan on texting her today and asking for the address to Thanksgiving because, hey, another plate on Thanksgiving is always great. If I was invited to their Thanksgiving for real, yes I would go.”
Hopefully, the next text message will go to the right number and grandma won’t end up with hundreds of extra guests on Thanksgiving!
