GTJ’s Satirist Brian F. – Teaching Bubbe To Text Not Going Very Well

BubbeBOCA RATON, FL – (@The Comedy News) – Dustin Kaiser thought a great way to spend Christmas Day would be to teach his 88-year-old Bubbe, Marsha how to send a text message on her new iPhone.

However, despite his pending Ph.D in social work from Cornell, Dustin’s efforts to teach Bubbe Marsha were futile.

“I’ve always known Bubbe to be a strong, smart idol of mine,” said Dustin.  “But watching her hit the ‘call end’ button over and over, and then turning off the phone when she wasn’t using it, made me flip my lid.”

Dustin’s patience wore thin as he hovered behind his Bubbe—who was perched in her favorite rocking chair.  After Bubbe Marsha asked where the “erase button” was [referring to ‘delete’] Dustin snatched the phone away from her and called his confused Bubbe a “windpassing altacocker”.

Bubbe Marsha, a retired nurse who has been alive since the Calvin Coolidge administration, maintained her poise during the entire ordeal.

And despite her complete and total failure at attempting to send a text message, Bubbe Marsha did manage —all on her own— to learn how to shoot and upload sepia-faded photographs to Instagram.
