Ever since our moms got smartphones, we never know what to expect. Anything could show up on our screens at any moment. For some reason, moms have a way of getting into the funniest conundrums while texting their kids. Sometimes, they misunderstand emojis and slang. Other times, autocorrect puts them in hilarious pickles.
Then, some moms know exactly what they’re doing. They often enjoy surprising us by proving they’re not as far behind the times as we think. And of course, they love having an open line of communication, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If dads are known for hating phone calls, moms are known for loving texting. Often, they love it just a little too much. Sure, they spent years telling us to put our phones down. But now, they’re the ones who can’t get enough of emojis and texting acronyms.
(And lots and lots of Minion stickers, which we’re still confused about.)
But let’s face it: we love getting sweet, funny, and downright weird texts from our moms. An unexpected message can make your entire day. Here are 75 texts from moms that caught their kids by surprise.
1. I WISH I ran the Google, Mom
Why do our moms think that we’re the gods of technology, the internet, and the world? No Mom, I don’t run “the Google,” but it sure would be nice if I did.
2. Thanks for the fantasy
I’m not sure if this mom’s trying to be encouraging or just giving a sick burn. Either way, I know how it came across — like the sickest burn of all time.
3. To be fair, ice cream = love
Ah, moms and their inability to understand emojis. But for reasons we can’t explain, they just keep trying. In what world does ice cream have two side-by-side scoops?
4. This is a brilliant strategy
I have nothing but admiration for this mom. She really knows what she’s doing. But while I admire her, I also acknowledge I’d be incredibly annoyed if I were her child’s.
5. Uh…nope, it’s not
This is the opposite of accidentally tweeting something that was meant for a private message. I don’t think Andy’s mom fully grasps the concept of Twitter.
6. Just stop while you’re ahead
Like most older people, this mother fell prey to the hilarious perils of Autocorrect. She might want to steer clear of advice until she figures out this texting thing.
7. Mom knows how to clap back
Moms spend your childhood building you up and telling you that you can be anything. But once you become an adult, they rarely hold back. Tell me how you really feel, Mom.
8. That’s quite the remedy
Lots of moms offer weird old wives’ remedies when they’re sick, but this is taking it a step too far. You know the kid immediately screenshotted this text conversation and sent it to their dad.
9. Don’t worry about it
There’s a stereotype that men — especially older married men — aren’t very good at giving their wives gifts. But I have to say a Swiffer is a better gift than…the other thing.
Trust us: it’s never a good thing when your mom’s asking you to explain contemporary slang. Especially when it’s slang that’s making your dad laugh.
11. Geez, don’t hold back
Moms often worry when their adult children don’t have an active social life. That being said, this might not be the best way to motivate your kid.
12. Something tells me the brother will be getting a call
When your mom happens to see some explicit text messages, just tell her it’s an alien getting on a spaceship. Of course, you’re risking her sending the same explicit message to your sibling.
13. Time for a crash course in internet slang
This is the worst possible time to find out that LOL doesn’t mean “lots of love.” That being said, Mom can take a deep breath — I’m pretty sure people understood the context.
I’m trying my hardest to understand how she managed to send the same text three times in a row without even noticing her error. Maybe it’s just me and my millennial sense of technology.
15. Stop being creepy, Mom
This is creepy on so many levels. Not only did she not get permission to photograph this dude, but there’s no indication she’s ever even talked to him. How long until she gives him her daughter’s phone number?
16. I mean, don’t do that either
Don’t you love when Autocorrect turns your mom’s text from innocent to creepy? It’s even worse that she didn’t acknowledge it. It kind of implies she’s said it before.
17. Wait, the last guy was a murderer?
Mom sort of moved on from the whole “the last one was a murderer” thing a little too casually. Apparently, she just wants some grandbabies that badly. Hopefully, it turned out better this time.
18. Don’t you hate it when you forget something at the store?
Believe me when I say this kid isn’t going to let their mom forget about this for a long time. “Oh, you didn’t get me what I wanted for Christmas? At least you didn’t leave me at Walmart.”
19. No need…
Mom’s still figuring out this whole texting thing. Don’t worry, it’s not a “monkey see monkey do” arrangement. You can text whatever punctuation you want.
20. JUST WELCH’S, PLEASE
For a reason we’ll never understand, moms seem intent on using “text talk.” Let this be a lesson to all of us: use proper grammar and punctuation or you might make things weird.
21. She’s going to be confused when the sister gives the same answer
There are problems with quotation marks on both sides of this message. Mom has some unnecessary ones, and her kid’s answer is missing a few. See? Proper punctuation saves lives.
22. It’s an emergency
Normally, Mom wouldn’t come to you with a situation like this, but it’s an emergency. But logically, the only way Dad would see would be if he searched for something similar.
23. Bowtie Man is a role model
Moms want to make sure their kids are surrounded by good role models. If they can’t find any, they simply invent one. Just ask Bowtie Man who’s smart and responsible.
24. Dad jokes are nothing on mom jokes
This pun is so hilarious that it almost makes up for the lack of crackers. But it does beg the question: did she deliberately neglect to buy crackers for the sake of making the joke?
25. Better go now
Andy has the right idea. If you’ve ever tried to help your parents work through a technological problem, you know it’s better to do it yourself.
26. Mom’s up to date on her slang
Mom might not know exactly what YOLO stands for, but she’s got the general vibe down. And she managed to use it correctly. Well done, Mom.
27. I mean…that depends
If you’re in the United States, the answer is no, you can’t text the police. It should be a thing, but it’s not in this country. And yes, that’s stupid.
28. Not quite
Aren’t moms adorable when they learn new texting acronyms and try to use them? Inevitably, they come up with something vulgar or dirty, yet think it means something innocent.
29. No, Mom…just no
Take it from us: your mom doesn’t understand autofill settings on her phone. Do yourself a favor and change some of them for the funniest prank you’ve ever played.
30. Not quite, Mom
Mom’s got the concept down, but she’s still working on the execution. Still, you have to give her credit for trying to stay up-to-date on social media trends.
31. Mayday, mayday
Apparently, Mom’s never looked at a phone keyboard before…or even a computer keyboard. Has she even looked at a typewriter? The space bar is the same on all of them.
32. Just make her happy
After three tries with no changes, it’s better just to pacify her. She’ll be happy, you’ll be happy, and no one will ever know she sent the same photo three times. Unless you share it on the internet, of course.
33. Mom doesn’t have time for sexist jokes
This kid thought he was so funny when he made this joke about women being in the kitchen. But as his mom pointed out, the only reason a woman would be in his bedroom is to search for all those dirty bowls.
34. Good job, Mom
It can be hard to relate to your kids as they get older, but this mom’s trying her hardest. She’s determined to keep up with what the cool kids are doing.
35. …just, wow
When your mom quotes Twilight this naturally, it tells you one thing: she has a deep and intimate knowledge of the saga. And that’s just too upsetting to think about.
36. Are you even listening?
Mom doesn’t know if you were going to text, but if you were thinking about it, stop. It’s called self-care and she’ll not let anything get in its way.
37. All the updates from home
Moms have a habit of doing an info dump the moment you talk to them on the phone, but this one took it to the next level. She doesn’t even need to make a phone call — she’ll give you text-by-text updates.
38. It means what it means
Apparently, this mom later explained she was trying to respond: “Nice, Aimee.” I don’t know how she got so wildly off-base, nor why she repeated the text. The world may never know.
39. Give me a crash course
Something tells me this kid thought about all the rules of solitaire for a few minutes before realizing this wasn’t a journey they wanted to start. Let me Google that for you, Mom …
40. Punctuation’s important
It’s a good thing her daughter gave her the benefit of the doubt, because this could’ve turned into a giant misunderstanding. Texting isn’t an excuse for lazy punctuation, people.
41. Yep, that’s what it means
In this mom’s defense, the traditional use of WTF could also apply in this case. Of course, most of us don’t have moms that talk like that in front of us.
42. Earth to Mom
We love our moms, but a lot of the time — especially when it comes to technology — they can be a little bit ditzy. If you point it out, they’ll say it’s because you drove them crazy.
43. Just be patient
Part of me really hopes this mom is trolling her kid. But I know she honestly isn’t connecting the dots right now. It’s okay, Mom — we all have those days.
Andy’s mom doesn’t quite have the hang of texting — or email, actually. In fact, you might want to go ahead and take her cell phone away. Tell her to stick to a landline for a while.
45. You didn’t have to share
This mom doesn’t seem to understand that even if she does text in the bathroom no one will ever know about it. Unless, she decides to tell them in her next text.
46. Mom’s ruthless
Every mother has experienced the struggle of trying to get her kids to answer her texts. This one had a particularly cruel way of making sure they did.
47. Mom’s having a little too much fun with emojis
Oh no, Mom found out that emojis exist. It happens to all of them sooner or later. But this mom’s taking it to levels you never could’ve imagined.
48. She’s pretty sure
I have a lot of questions about this one, but I’m going to assume Mom’s being a troll. Either that or she’s having some serious memory problems and needs to see a doctor.
49. She’s saving them
This mom’s all about planning ahead. When she sees an emoji that she wants to use in the future, she texts it immediately. What else is she supposed to do?
50. Um…no thank you
Sure, this is one of those Autocorrect instances where it’s easy to tell what she meant to say. But it’s still funny to see how it was corrected.
51. Nice save, Mom
It’s nice to see this mom loves her son no matter what. It’s a little awkward when he has to do the opposite: come out as straight.
52. Have you been drinking?
At first glance, you might wonder if this mom’s drunk or perhaps speaking a different language. But as it turns out, she’s blind as a bat.
53. But it’s not wrong
Moms often try to use slang like kids do. But they use it incorrectly with hilarious results. In this case, Mom technically isn’t wrong…she’s just making it weird.
54. …in the middle at the bottom
Not only has this mom never seen a phone keyboard, but she’s also having a hard time understanding instructions. Luckily, Andy knows how to give her a hand.
55. Oh, thank goodness
When your mom texts you something like this, you’re going to hope beyond hope there’s some context. Mother, think about your words before you type them.
56. Mom has a sick sense of humor
Plenty of moms have a dark sense of humor, but this one’s beyond the pale. I hope she has a lot of money to pay for her child’s therapy.
57. Pokémon…go get help
How this mom missed the rise of Pokémon Go is beyond all of us. Even if you never played it, you’ve definitely heard of it. I would love to drink whatever alcohol can make you see a Pikachu.
58. Must be drugs
Something tells me this mother has only the vaguest idea of how drugs work. She must’ve been deeply affected by all those D.A.R.E. officers.
59. Wait, what are we talking about?
Old habits die hard for moms. They change our diapers when we’re little, but their care doesn’t stop once we’re potty-trained. In fact, they never stop caring about our bowel movements.
60. Leave the cat out of this
It’s always difficult to have conversations like these with your child. This mom had an interesting way of approaching it: use the cat as your shield.
61. MOM, STOP
This mom’s now banned from using emojis forever and always. That is until she can use them with some responsibility. We can’t let her continue…it’s too traumatizing.
62. Thanks for the reminder
Moms are great at making everything more dramatic than it needs to be. This is the grown-up version of “Eat your dinner; there are starving children in Africa.”
63. No context
Not everyone has a relationship with their mom like this one: sending pictures of penises without any context. But should you be flattered that you’re her top choice to share that with?
64. Don’t even try to fool her
For some of us, we can honestly say our moms know us better than we know ourselves. How else would this mom know without a doubt that her daughter’s hungover?
65. Har, har, har
With jokes this corny, you better hope that sense of humor isn’t genetic. Oh, what are we saying? This joke’s absolutely hilarious.
66. I like the way she thinks
This mom had some thoughts during her routine breast exam that she had to share with her child. That’s right, kids — she was thinking about equality.
67. She’s on board no matter what
This is a great mom. She’s checking in on a regular day to let her kid know she’s up for anything. Her next question might be, “Do you need help hiding a body?”
68. I sure hope she meant “peanuts”
I’m going to go ahead and assume this is a fantastically unfortunate typo. Honestly, the alternative is just too horrifying to think about. But then again, I don’t know what kind of lady Mom is.
69. She’s been meaning to say something
This mom had a lot of her mind lately. Well, mainly she’s had one thing on her mind: the state of her daughter’s bra. Now please, for the love of all that’s good, buy a new bra.
70. …you okay?
The only thing more horrifying than this text is realizing it was sent on Friday, October 13. There’s some horror movie stuff about to go down.
71. Do I get any context?
Listen, I don’t want to have to start pulling your laundry out of the freezer. There has to be a boundary somewhere. I’m drawing it right here, right now.
72. Thank goodness you reminded me
There are a lot of silly national holidays, but this one’s different — in fact, it’s extremely important. Plus, you’ll have that dumb song stuck in your head for a week.
73. My mom’s cooler than your mom
…and she could take on Batman, too. This woman might be recovering from a medical procedure, but she’s doing it in style. If she came around a corner, I’d absolutely go the other way.
74. She’s concerned
Never underestimate your mom’s gullibility when it comes to the dangers of drugs. After all, she’s never seen the lungs of a marijuana user. They could look like anything.
75. She knows how to motivate
If there’s one thing our moms know how to do, it’s having our backs through life’s toughest moments. This mom’s a prime example of why we love them so much.

Lazy People Solutions That Defy Common Sense
There’s the right way of doing things, and then there’s the wrong way of doing things. But how can a solution be wrong when it’s faster? This is how.
Every day, we go through small internal battles. We argue with ourselves over doing things right or doing things fast. The 40 people ahead all opted to do things fast. And the consequences came even faster as a result!
It’s as good as new.
If you look closely, you’ll be able to see that some of the column uses new wood. Thanks to this restoration, the roof that the column’s holding up should stay in place for weeks. Warning: Do not play Jenga with this!
For once, the sockets are making the right expression
Drilling metal screws into the plugs? What could possibly go wrong? The weird thing about this one is that it actually took some effort to do something so stupid.
Calm down, there’s some plastic tape. No one could possibly walk over the gap with that tape in place. Right?
10+ People That Had No Idea How Attractive They Were Until They Worked To Improve Themselves
Sometimes when your health is out of balance you can’t see yourself clearly. When people struggle with something physical, like weight, they can’t always see how beautiful they really are. These people didn’t even realize how attractive they were until they worked on themselves, but now they can celebrate their appearances every day.
These 30 people have powerful stories, and their transformations are absolutely amazing. Their messages are so inspiring.
“I lost 100 lbs, and I feel great.”
“It took me 2 years and 3 months to get in shape. It sounds like a lot of time, but it was well worth it.”
“I made true friends, and they helped me to have a more active lifestyle. That’s how I managed to lose weight. Now I can communicate with any person.”
“The difference between these 2 photos is 4 years. And I was even used to not enjoying what I looked like.”
“Me when I was 19 and 21.”
“I was depressed because of the way I looked. I didn’t even want to live. But I decided that I was able to change everything, so I started losing weight… I feel great, and I’m enjoying my life!”
“I didn’t use to be really fat. I had a hard time choosing the right hairstyle.”
“I used to weigh 60 lb, now I weigh 90, and I keep working on my body.”
“3 years between these photos. Some people don’t believe that it’s me.”
“So much has changed in 3 years! Before, I didn’t get out much. I was very shy. Now we live in a time when changing your appearance is very easy.”
“Just 4 years, and this is what I’ve become (I’m on the right).”
“I didn’t do anything special, but I’m not ugly anymore.”
“I restored what was destroyed by 20 years of McDonald’s and Coke.”
“15 months later I finally have a chin! Now I’m doing everything I can to maintain my weight.”
“I lost 100 lb, and I keep working on my body.”
“The difference is just 4 years. I was a nerd, and now I’m a macho.”
“The difference between these photos is 25 months. I had always been fat, so I decided that I could lose weight.”
“My weight was 330 lb when I finally decided to start losing weight… But now I have a new goal — 180 lb. I’ve started my way to it! I wish you luck too.”
“The difference between these photos is 20 months. I lost weight, and now I’m not shy about the natural structure of my hair.”
“This is my progress.”
“Now I am 25, I lost 120 lb, and I work out every day.”
“This is my boyfriend at the age of 16 and 21. It’s hard to tell that it’s the same person.”
“I knew I owed it to my son to try to break the family tree of obesity. There are so many compromises to being an obese parent: I was simply forfeiting the ability to participate in so many wonderful moments.”
“As the pounds started to come off, I noticed a change, but others didn’t — until the day I appeared outside of my office standing up.”
“My goal is to train and inspire people to show them that the weight loss is possible.”
“My dad pushed me and motivated me to start working out. He would tell me he wanted me to be around for a long time.”

50 Cringeworthy Fashion Fails We Can’t Believe People Didn’t Notice
Not all of us are fashion experts. This is why we try to experiment and mix and match clothes to see if we can look more stylish. Unfortunately, the more we try to look more fashionable, the more we end up failing. The risky fashion choice we make often leaves us looking ridiculous and weird in other people’s eyes.
Fortunately, fashion disasters aren’t always bad. In fact, they can be transformed into little entertainment and also a warning for others to never try to copy them.
Here are the most cringe-worthy fashion fails you need to see this year:
1. Brown logo on white shoes
In theory, putting a brown logo on a white background will make a product look classy. In reality, a brown logo on white shoes just looks like bird poo from afar.
2. A not-so-comfortable evening dress
This is probably one of the most uncomfortable dresses you’ll see. I don’t think you’ll have a great time wearing this to a party or anywhere.
3. When you accidentally stepped on something
This is actually a good pair of shoes if you always walk on mud or dirt. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your shoes. Plus, its design can work as camouflage for when you accidentally stepped on your dog’s poo.
Will you give up or will you never give up? Well, it’s a good shirt to wear if you still can’t decide. At least, you’re letting other people know where you stand.
