Moms are awesome. They're like superheroes. There's literally nothing they can't do. Except for when it comes to text messaging perhaps. And though they try their hardest to keep up with the times and the communication methods of our time, trying often pairs with failing.

For some moms, it's the autocorrect that ruins their perfectly good messages, for others - it's the missed jokes, taking things too literally, and well, caring just a tiny bit too much. Whichever reason it may be, the outcome can vary between mildly funny and absolutely hilarious.

Take a look at these SMS fails to see what we mean. Compiled by Bored Panda, the list serves to remind us that while moms usually know best, even they aren't immune to getting things wrong occasionally. But even then they're still right. Why? Because they're moms. And moms are always right!

The cat should know that safe sex is a good thing, especially since the cat probably isn't ready to be a grandmother.

This is probably the only thing in the series that is not funny. This kind of trust in children is sad...and using texting when suspecting drugs is just odd.

Andy seems to be a popular name in this list. So either he has an awesome mother, or its just a common name.
