List Rules Vote up the grandparents who definitely deserve an instant reply.

Texts from grandparents read all sorts of ways, which makes them so much more entertaining to receive than a blip from your parents or friends. When it comes to grandparents texting, all the rules of text messages typically get ignored, usually because your old folks have better things to worry about than the concept of waiting five minutes to reply because you don't want to appear desperate. The older you get, the less time you have, and the less you want to waste. Because of this, some of your grandparents' text messages read so humorously and concisely, that a 21st century technology presented with elderly wit hardly knows what to do with them. Texts from grandma, who probably just wants to make sure you have enough to eat, are another of life's little joys, one that can be interpreted in so many ways depending on their familiarity with a touchscreen keyboard.

Of course, funny texts from grandpa occasionally do come from a slip of the thumb or a misunderstand of how the iPhone mic works. But as the grandparents texting below reveal, most of your elders deserve the utmost respect for their text savvy and aged humor; it's as if they knew you would post the screenshots to Tumblr later.
