Grandmas and grandpas grew up with rotary phones, so you have to cut them some slack when it comes to communicating via fancy smartphones or Facebook. After all, they love talking to their grandchildren, and it's a huge reason why they are trying to become acquainted with modern technology in the first place. Some of these attempts, however, fall into hilarious text fails category. Bored Panda has compiled a list of funny text messages from grandparents that probably provided entertainment for the whole family, and it will definitely make you text your folks more often.

Stories about dead relatives and emojis of the middle finger aren't always appropriate, but when these funny messages come from your grandparents, you can at least be sure good intentions are behind them. Scroll down to read some of the funniest things the elderly have texted their grandchildren and upvote your favorite text message fails!

I miss the days when my Grandma would call me to tell me one of my favourite bands was going to be on a TV show. Grandpa would read the TV Guide and list off everything and she would go through all the grandkids, calling each of us up to let us know our "people" were going to be on tv. So sweet.
