Welp, this is really happening.

In case you’ve buried your computer and haven’t heard (which we understand), starting Jan. 20, 2017, President-elect Donald Trump can send unblockable mass-text messages to all Americans.

The heartwarming tale of a grandma texting a Thanksgiving invitation to the wrong number just got a perfect ending.

After 17-year-old Jamal Hinton from Phoenix, Arizona, received a text message inviting him to Thanksgiving dinner from an unknown number claiming to be his grandma, he asked for photographic proof from the woman.

Once Hinton confirmed the kind woman was in fact, not his grandmother, he sent a selfie back to help her understand the mixup.

After the silly and unexpected interaction, the two kept in contact and wound up spending Thanksgiving together after all.
