It's always nice to receive well wishes from family members during the holiday season.
Even nicer is when they take the time to send you a handwritten card from them.
Because they contain hidden joys, such as hilarious spelling errors that you can share online for everyone with a social media account to see. Which is precisely what Rob Cook did with this unintentionally raunchy letter he received from his family for Christmas and New Year's. In the kindly written card, Rob's sweet relatives wrote: "Have a fun one and try not to work too hard." Seems sweet enough, until you realize that the sloppy writing makes it seem like there's a whole other, very different message written on the kind card for older relatives (I am guessing they are older because I don't think I know a single young person who writes in cursive by choice — I know even fewer young people who send handwritten cards when — let's be honest — a text message will, more often than not, totally suffice).
Anyway, back to where we were: This is a nice, handwritten card using the finest cursive inexplicably written in cursive. Ahh, the joys of cursive, helping people mistake "work" for "wank" since the 1700s.
Not only did people love Rob's tweet...
...but they started sharing embarrassing handwritten cards of their own. And apparently hard-to-read, handwritten notes are all too common — and it doesn't just happen during the holidays!
That sounds like an, err...rigorous retirement activity.
And as it turns out, Rob's family isn't the only one that suffered from the work/wank conundrum.
But after seeing this text from Rob's family, it turns out that the mistake wasn't actually a mistake at all.
Hey, at least he's got family writing him letters for the holidays, right?
