In today’s world, where we all are chasing happiness at expensive cost, a grandmother from UK showed us that simple words are enough to make someone smile including Google.
The 86-year-old May Ashworth made an unusual polite online request. She used ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ while making the request.
Ashworth’s grandson Ben John found her laptop open and took a photo of the online request.

Since then, the request has gone viral. John, who has been retweeted 30,000 times, told that his grandmother thinks there is a person at Google’s headquarters who looks after the searches.
“She thought that by being polite and using her manners, the search would be quicker,” he said.
The search request was so adorable that Google UK and Google’s official global Twitter account expressed their appreciation.
Dearest Ben’s Nan.
Hope you’re well.
In a world of billions of Searches, yours made us smile.
Oh, and it’s 1998.
