Dublin: 5 °C Friday 21 January, 2022

This grandma asked Google the most polite question, and got an excellent reply

We love nana May.

YOU MIGHT HAVE seen this tweet on your timeline yesterday.

Dubbed ‘the most British Google request of all time’, Ben John’s grandmother politely asked and thanked Google in advance for helping her translate the roman numerals mcmxcviii.

He told the BBC that he was over in the 86-year-old’s house to do washing when he opened her laptop and found the request.

He said she was so polite because she thought an actual person looked after the searches:

She thought that by being polite and using her manners, the search would be quicker.

Twitter fell in love with nanna May Ashworth’s manners, with the tweet favourited over 20,000 times


Turns out, Google are also fans.

They told her that no thanks was necessary, before writing her the sweetest tweet we’ve probably ever seen
