A British grandmother has gone viral for her hilariously polite Google search.
Ben John was recently visiting his grandmother, 86-year-old May Ashworth, and he used her laptop.
That's when he noticed her most recent Google search: "Please translate these roman numerals mcmxcviii thank you."
"I asked my nan why she used 'please' and 'thank you' and it seemed she thinks that there is someone - a physical person - at Google's headquarters who looks after the searches," Ben said. "She thought that by being polite and using her manners, the search would be quicker."
Ben posted a screenshot of May's hilarious and adorable search strategy and the tweet has gone viral with more than 35,000 retweets and 49,000 likes.
Even better? Google replied via Twitter:
No thanks necessary.
