The 10 Best Jokes About THAT Presidential Text Alert

October 3, 2018 marks the text heard around the world — or, I guess, the United States. The White House tested out its new emergency text alert system, which sends an Amber Alert-type notification to your phone and is (unfortunately for some) something you can’t opt out of.

But even though these notifications may seem a little annoying to some, it does make for some great jokes. Here are our favorites, thanks to Twitter dot com.

1. Well now this is just rude

2. What the alert SHOULD have said

3. I think my alerts are broken…

4. We need new methods!!

5. Are these alerts the new Twitter?

6. A little rough but a good reminder

7. This is getting out of hand

8. What’s next, Direct TV alerts??

9. Goodbye, old friend

10. The truest tweet of all

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
