We cannot get over this grandma’s super polite Google search

One of the greatest joys of modern day life is to see how our parents and grandparents use social media. They make off-beat but adorable comments on our Facebook profile pictures, which usually end awkwardly in “Love, Grandma.” Or they write “happy birthday” messages to friends on their own wall. It’s pretty adorbs.

This grandma from the U.K. might take home the Best Online Grandma award, though. A few days ago, a guy by the name of Ben Eckersley tweeted his grandma’s Google searches. He opened up her laptop and saw that she was typing in “please” and “thank you” when asking Google about Roman numeral translations. false

I mean, really. How can “please translate these roman numerals mcmxcviii thank you” not put a massive smile on your face?! Omg, we love grandmas. They’re so polite and well-mannered.

If this puts you in the mood to see more grandparents do what they do best online, don’t worry. There are plenty of captured moments out there that we all deserve to see. Like that one time a grandpa by the name of Ralph posted on Dollar Tree’s Facebook page asking, “Can I get a U tube there? My granddaughter has a dance video.


Or that other time when a grandma insisted her granddaughter not talk so much trash about Rihanna.


Can you even?! Now’s a good time to call your grandparents and tell them you love them!
