Sometimes, life hands you gifts. Maybe you're not expecting it, but you're ready for it. Sometimes that gift is merely a series of text exchanges. This is the story of one of those times.
A simple request for milk. A gentle nudge that says, "Hey you have the wrong number." Surely, this will end civilly and shortly?
Imgur user velakskin couldn't resist having a LITTLE bit of fun with this mom. It's not every day this happens. Who among us wouldn't have done the same?
For avid users of Imgur and Reddit, there are a few things we dream about:1) Finding a box with an abandoned kitten and rescuing it, but along the way it rescued you.2) Crafting the perfect meme.3) Getting a wrong number text.All of these things can be used for sweet, sweet internet attention.
Who doesn't know their own daughter's phone number? This lady, that's who. But truly, she's about to see the error in her ways, right?
He gave you an out, lady. HE GAVE YOU AN OUT! As a general rule, when someone sends you a selfie of two strangers and says you have the wrong number, believe them.
It's hard enough being a teenaged girl. It's even harder when you have a mom like THIS. She doesn't even know!
"Enough is enough." Finally, this woman is saying something that makes sense. Not in the context that she means it, but hey, baby steps.
At this point, he might have been better off taking a selfie of himself holding a sign that says, "For the love of God, I am not Jess. You have the wrong number. Please reexamine your life."
We just don't get it! It's hard to understand why Jess could be such an alleged problem child. Especially with such a calm, clear-thinking mother.
NOW she realizes that she had the wrong number. There was absolutely nothing leading up to this moment that could've given it away. Yeah, that checks out.
MOM: *gets sent sincere pictures*
MOM: *gets sincerely told that she has the wrong number*
MOM: "You did not sound sincere."
US, READING THIS AT HOME: WTF?!
Hey, can you guys reading these captions hold on for a second? Us at the Guff office need to take like, 10 minutes to high five over how great of a comeback "My mom knows my phone number" is.
But wait, does she have a comeback to top that comeback?
Well, at least she tried.*
*She didn't try. None of this would've happened if she was actually trying.
A moment of thunderous applause for velakskin.
And a moment of silence for poor Jess. Girl, sorry your own mom doesn't even know your number.
