If you've been a citizen of the internet during the last three years and/or you're a fan of wholesome stuff, you've probably heard about everyone involved in this story—though you may not know their names.


Three years ago a woman sent a text to a number she thought belonged to her grandson. Grandma Wanda wanted to confirm Thanksgiving plans, but ended up sending the text to a wrong number.

On the other end of the texts sat a very confused (but hungry) 17-year-old named Jamal Hinton.

Jamal asked who it was, to which Grandma Wanda replied: "your grandmother." Jamal knew something wasn't right so he asked for a selfie for confirmation.

He got Grandma Wanda's selfie and responded with one of his own. Yeah... it was definitely a wrong number situation.

The two both thought it was hilarious and Wanda jokingly invited Jamal to join them for Thanksgiving anyway. The screenshots made their way to the internet and the pair had dinner together for real.

They were expecting to get a funny little story out of the situation, but what ended up happening was even better. Their families ended up absolutely adoring one another.

What started as an internet joke turned into a legitimately close friendship. They have dinner together every few months and have kept their Thanksgiving tradition alive.

This was their third year together!

Jamal shared photos from each year on Twitter.

And yes, they plan on doing it again next year because that's just what family does. And they have decided that's what they are: one big family.

Next year, though, Jamal and his girlfriend Mikaela are hopeful that they may have their own place and maybe they can host dinner instead of Wanda.

Twitter is so in love with this story of random loving friendship.









We're already looking forward to an update in 2019!

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
