Grandma Who Accidentally Texted Teen Keeps Promise Of Inviting Him To Thanksgiving

By Mark Pygas

Last week, a tweet by 17-year-old Jamal Hinton of Mesa, Arizona, went viral after he received an accidental text from someone else's grandma. The teen was accidentally added to a Thanksgiving family group chat started by Wanda Dench, who had intended to add her own grandson but got the number wrong. 

She wrote, "Thanksgiving dinner is at my house on Nov. 24 at 3:00pm. Let me know if you're coming. Hope to see you all. Of course that includes Amanda & Justin." Hinton, of course, had no idea what she was talking about.

Dench didn't know she'd got the number wrong until Hinton asked for a selfie to see if his own grandma had just got a new phone. He followed up with a selfie of his own and a text reading, "You're not my grandma. Can I still get a plate tho?"
