My Big Fat Tech Challenged Italian Family

This is a for real text sequence between the women in my family that took place within about 5 minutes. No, I did not misspell words as I was transcribing from my phone to this document. I accurately relayed the actual texts. I cannot express to you the chaos that it is to be part of this crazy crew of Italian women. Can you imagine our family gatherings?
