Kimmel Staffers Read Texts From Their Moms

  • Published on May 5, 2016
  • Mother’s Day is a chance to honor the women who gave us life, who love us, who leave us long voicemails and send us nonsensical texts. Jimmy loves these texts, so we went around the office and had people on our staff read some real texts from their moms.

    Hilarious! I tried to get my mother to use Messenger years ago. She typed me ONE message, and never hit send. She showed it to me when I got to her house. It started with Dear ____ and ended with, yours sincerely, (her full name).

    Why are moms so mom-like? I could relate to the first text so well. My mom’s text “why won’t you talk to me over the phone??? I couldn’t sleep because I know something is wrong! Do you still have a job? I feel like you don’t have a job and you need help and you won’t tell me!” Okay, mom...

    Talking to Moms is nothing short than an adventure sport. You never know what will happen next. This is what happened today.

    Mom: Hey, your sister called a few days back and told me that she wanted to talk to you.
    Me: Mom, I spoke to her yesterday.
    Mom: No silly, a few days back not yesterday. Call her.

    My mom is uniquely adept to technology for someone in their 60’s. So rather than nonsense its actually no different than actual conversations with her. Problem is, she’s very weird. And I am similarly weird. So it winds up being stuff like how shes waiting for a train to pass and sees a train car that says “no hammering” and she follows up with something about how that was the whole reason she carried a hammer in her purse (she doesn’t really) and that ruined her day. Or one time back when I was still in highschool we planned to redecorate my room and she discovered the elephant emoji so she said “should we decorate your room in elephants?” Followed by an elephant emoji. Then another text of three elephant emojis. Then another of one then five then two then 10 and then the word elephants. Completely intentional on her part. Come to think of it...this explains a lot about me.

    My mom texts in Yoga-speech. Someone added her to a group text that has me, my 3 brothers, sisters-in-law and eldest nephew. It's pretty hilarious when she adds her opinion on something. Usually takes us all about 15 minutes to figure out what she is texting about!
