Mother sends a blunt text banning her neighbour from coming to Christmas lunch because she ‘supports Dan Andrews’ – but is all as it seems?
- A TikTok user posted text messages from ‘Rachel’ to ‘Jill’ about Christmas lunch
- Jill was not invited for Christmas this year because she supports Dan Andrews
- Rachel wished her a Merry Christmas and hoped she was coping with a divorce
- Many users believe the text messages are a prank by another TikTok user
A mother has banned her neighbour from coming to her Christmas lunch because the woman supports Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews.
The mother, known only as Rachel, accidentally sent a text meant for her neighbour ‘Jill’ to a stranger in an attempt to inform her about the decision.
‘Your views on politics seem to be a bit much for myself and my family. Daniel Andrews is never the man we will support and we would respect it if you would politely keep your political views to yourself, Rachel wrote.
‘Your comments at the table last year were also extremely disrespectful towards my daughter and the painting your son smashed while kicking a football inside the house was also the only thing I had from my mother which passed.’
Rachel then wishes Jill a merry Christmas and mentions her recent relationship break-up.
‘I hope you and Ollie are coping ok with the divorce. Thanks.’
Jill is cancelled: the purported text message from Rachel telling neighbour Jill she is not invited to Christmas lunch because of her support for Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews
Once Rachel realised she has the wrong number, she explains why Jill is not invited to lunch
Perth woman Joelly Daveys, who received the extraordinary message by mistake, responded to the irate mother and shared the exchange on social media.
‘Wrong number. But can you tell me the gossip on Jill? What did she say last Christmas?’ Ms Daveys wrote back.
‘Jill was a very disrespectful neighbour [that] we used to live near. She is a Daniel Andrews supporter which speaks for itself,’ Rachel wrote.
‘She openly mentioned my daughter putting on weight at the table… She is a very selfish and insensitive woman who I simply do not like.’
‘Dayummmmm, Jill ain’t coming to Christmas lunch this year,’ Ms Daveys wrote.
Social media users were quick to insist the exchange was likely sent by a prankster who delights in sending long messages to random strangers to confuse them.
Many TikTok users pointed out the text exchange was likely a prank by another user who likes to send long texts to random people
‘It’s a dude texting random numbers to be funny and he sends that exact message,’ one person commented.
‘This is that other TikTokker who sends long texts as a prank. It has to be, sounds just like him,’ another person wrote.
Others said they would have played along and pretended to be Jill to keep the purported prank going.
Some commenters had views on Jill based on the texts.
‘Damn, Jill being an open progressive in politics but regressive in the body shaming.’
‘Jill was a very disrespectful neighbour [that] we used to live near. She is a Daniel Andrews supporter which speaks for itself,’ ‘Rachel’ said of her neighbour, ‘Jill’
