The internet is screaming at this unintentionally NSFW message a mom sent her son

We've all had that moment where we've sent a message to the wrong person. Sometimes it's little more than a white lie, but other times it can be much more incriminating. Whether it's sending a screenshot of a conversation you're having to the person you're having it with, or pinging an accidental nude to your best friend, it's embarrassing, cringe-worthy, and can have horrific consequences.

However, one thing worse than sending the message yourself is receiving one from your parents. As a general rule, parents shouldn't really be allowed to have mobile phones. It may sound harsh, but if we're being honest, they're completely and utterly useless when it comes technology - especially phones.

It's likely that we've all received a bizarre text from our parents at some point or other. I remember when my cat died. Obviously, I was struck with grief and was in a severe state of mourning at the time. Then, just when I thought my mood couldn't sink any lower: up steps my auntie. Appearing via the medium of a text message, she says: "Sorry to hear about Meg ?"

Yep. Laughing at my dead cat. Nice, isn't it?

However, the latest instalment of "why parents shouldn't have phones" is slightly less morbid.

NY Times writer Mike Isaac uploaded a series of screenshots of texts that his mother sent him before she went off to the casino.

Firstly, his mom sent him an emoji-clad text, telling him that she was heading off to the casino with his dad.

"Guess what!!?? Dad and I are headed to WINSTAR CASINO for the day!! Wish us luck," she wrote, alongside a series of money, cloves, hearts and old people emojis.

After Isaac sent back a good like text, things quickly went wrong when his mom sent him a rather inappropriate GIF.

Yep, that is a slot machine that reads "YOU! EAT! ASS!"

If there's one thing we've learnt so far, it's this: please make sure you watch the GIF before you send it over.

Obviously realising her mistake, his mom quickly backtracks, saying:

"OMG!!! Didn't realize what the slot machine said, I am so sorry - I just read it PLEASE IGNORE".

Understandably, Twitter couldn't help but laugh at the entire thing, with plenty of people sharing their love for the unsuspecting mother.

While we don't know how the parents got on at the casino, it's safe to say that Isaac's mom hit the jackpot on Twitter, with her becoming a star overnight.

Once again, though, the story gives more evidence to the argument that parents simply should not have mobile phones. If you see your mom loading up a text, slap the phone out of her hand and save someone the trouble of trying to decipher what it was that she was trying to say.
