Most of us are probably used to using Google on a daily basis, but many in the older generations are still learning. There have always been great stories of people not used to modern technology using it in odd or unusual ways, but one grandmother's Google search is putting a smile on everyone's face. Ben Eckersley's grandmother added 'please' and 'thank you' to the beginning and end of her search in hopes that the answer would be found faster.

We all know that saying please and thank you don't help your searches work any better, but Ben's Nan just wanted to make sure she was being as sweet as could be. After ben tweeted the above image and caption, Google UK decided to respond and even help her out with her search!
Dearest Ben's Nan.
Hope you're well.
In a world of billions of Searches, yours made us smile.
Oh, and it's 1998.

This Googling granny is bringing a smile to everyone's hearts. The reason she says she added please and thank you was because "she thought that by being polite and using her manners, the search would be quicker," Ben told the BBC. If you needed something to bring a smile to your face today, hopefully, this did it.
