This Polite Grandmother Makes Everyone Laugh With Her Online Search
Apple| | By Margo Gothelf
Ben John thought the request was super charming, so he tweeted out a screenshot of the search. “It made me chuckle so I thought I’d take a photo and put it on Twitter for my friends to see,” John told BBC. “I didn’t expect so many other people to see it!” The picture quickly went viral with other Twitter users commenting on how kind and cute his grandmother is.
Omg opened my Nan's laptop and when she's googled something she's put 'please' and 'thank you'. I can't 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/hiy2tecBjU— Ben John (@Push10Ben) June 9, 2016

Google even took notice and told him “No thanks necessary.”

John explained that his grandmother rarely uses her laptop. “She goes to a ‘silver surfers’ club at the local library to learn about computers and the internet, but she hardly ever uses her laptop,” he explained. “I asked my nan why she used ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ and it seemed she thinks that there is someone – a physical person – at Google’s headquarters who looks after the searches.” She’s probably the best mannered person on the internet!

Oh, and it's 1998.
