Grandparents and technology are a volatile mix. Some take to it immediately, some don't, and some are good at it because they're so bad at it. Like Twitter user @amielmchugh's Granda. That's Scottish for grandpa.
She shared a text from her dear old grandfather that is simultaneously a guilt trip and a denial of her very existence:
Wow! Burn, Granda!
Someone who seems to know the old fella chimed in with more classics:
If you couldn't tell, that message was about compost:
That last one was him asking me to get him compost for his garden 😂😂😂😂😂— Jamie Murrie (@JamieMurrie) April 11, 2018
Don't try telling @amielmchugh this convo is a fake:
Mate that’s honestly so funny u should be a comedian actual nearly pished maself never seen that before— amie (@amielmchugh) April 11, 2018
It seems like her gramps is pretty exhausting, so enjoying his occasional texts is a nice highlight in the turmoil:
Every day is honestly too much u don’t understand how much hard work he is— amie (@amielmchugh) April 11, 2018
People definitely recognize this situation, if not with grandparents, then in their own lives:

But seriously, don't come for Amie:
Because she is just as savage as Granda.
