“At first it was a ton of frenzy and a ton of stun. We’re generally truly a jokey family, so I got the outright p*** removed from me.
“I’m the most youthful kin of four, so when I put it on the family WhatsApp [they laughed].
“I don’t figure I will interface any other person’s cards to my records once more. My sibling has downloaded the application for himself now as well, so it can’t occur once more.”
