Grandma’s incredibly polite Google search goes viral

A grandmother’s Google search is going viral on social media and melting hearts across the globe, including those at Google HQ!

Last week, Ben stumbled upon what many are saying is ‘the most polite google search ever’ when he used his grandma’s laptop.

In the search bar of Google, his 85-year-old grandma had written “please translate these roman numerals mcmxcviii thank you.”


The 24-year-old found it so adorable that he took a screen shot and posted it to Twitter with the caption: “Omg opened my Nan’s laptop and when she’s googled something she’s put ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. I can’t,” followed by three crying face emojis.

The post has since gone viral with more than 13,000 retweets and to top it all off, both Google UK and the official Google twitter account replied!
