British Grandmother Made The Most Polite Google Search Ever

We all know that the British are meant to be a polite group of people, but one elderly woman took this to the extreme end of unnecessary.

A young man from a suburb of Manchester, England, recently posted a picture of his grandmother’s hilarious Google search to Twitter, where it rapidly became viral and was retweeted nearly 6,000 times.

When Ben John opened his grandmother’s laptop after she was done using it, he discovered the depths of her politeness in the most hilarious way.

John’s grandmother had included the polite niceties “please” and “thank you” before and after her search for Google to translate a set of roman numerals.

John’s laugh-crying emoji response says it all. He has the cutest grandmother ever.

Mirror reports that when John asked his grandmother about why she thought she needed to use “please” and “thank you” she said she thought it was “the norm.”

To be fair though, maybe his grandmother was confusing Google with “Ask Jeeves?”
