Grandma Invites The Wrong Teen To Thanksgiving, Now Hundreds Of Hungry Teens Are Texting Her For An Invitation

When you text a wrong number, the conversation usually ends after "sorry, wrong number."  Not in the case of this generous grandma and 17-year-old Jamal Hinton from Phoenix, Arizona.

When Jamal got the text about Thanksgiving dinner from a woman calling herself grandma, he asked for her picture to be sure. Soon, he found himself in a group chat with two unknown numbers and an invitation to a stranger's Thanksgiving dinner.

"I really thought it was my grandma so I had to ask for a picture to make sure," Hinton told Mashable.

The two exchanged photos and when they realized the mistake, Jamal did what any teen would do when faced with food - he asked if the offer still stood!

The woman on the other end clearly takes her role as grandmother seriously, and she responded as every grandmother should :

"Of course you can. That's what grandmas do... feed everyone"

Well... grandma. Now you've gone and done it.

You know what happens when you invite one teen - you must invite them ALL.

It's like a rule, or a universal law. They're like kids - only bigger and they still run in packs.

Within hours of posting the exchange on twitter, grandma Wanda was inundated with hundreds of text requests for a plate at her table.

The MVP of grandmas is going to need some backup.

Jamal confirms with Mashable that he's kept in touch with this gracious grandma, her daughter and her grandson.

"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.

Hopefully thousands of hungry teens don't find out where she lives, otherwise, grandma's gonna need a bigger table!


Should he have been more careful about sharing their conversation on social media? Would you invite a complete stranger to your family's Thanksgiving dinner?
