Helping your parents with their gadgets is a daily grind, and not the kind that helps you get those washboard abs. It's more like the kind of grind where you get phone call after phone call about how their smart phone doesn't work. If it doesn't work, then how are you calling me?
However, there are moments when it all becomes worth it, when a parent makes a power move to remind us that they're just people, too, adorable people.
Twitter user @conrad1798 uploaded this photo of his mom trying to use WhatsApp, and, man, it's so good.
Why would she have to encrypt this message anyway?

People on Twitter love this. Probably becuase this is better than getting a voice mail asking the same question.
