Dad has hilarious method for keeping in touch with his siblings: ‘Do I understand this correctly?’

Zach (@likeahurricane85) is a TikToker whose dad has the most hilarious way of keeping in touch with his siblings. Zach’s dad is in a FaceTime group with his siblings, but instead of scheduling calls, the group talks to each other when one member accidentally butt dials the group chat! This happens so often that it has become the default way Zach’s dad keeps in touch with his siblings!

The video begins with Zach entering the room to find his dad FaceTiming his siblings. Zach’s dad is mid-conversation, but looks up and pauses when Zach enters. “Do I understand this correctly?” Zach asks. “You all have a group FaceTime and occasionally one person just butt dials the group and everybody picks up?”

Zach’s dad grins and holds up his phone to show his other three siblings on the FaceTime call. Everyone is smiling and laughing. “Yes,” Zach’s dad replies. “That’s usually the case.”

“About once a week!” one of the dad’s siblings shares. 

“About once a week somebody butt dials the group?” Zach asks incredulously 

“Exactly,” Zach’s dad says, sounding slightly bashful. “And everybody answers it.”

Zach’s dad pauses for a moment and scratches his nose. “And then nobody knows who started it,” he shares. “I just default blame Gale but I don’t know who usually does it.”

The video ends with Zach cracking up at his dad’s hilarious way of keeping in touch with his siblings

Viewers couldn’t get enough of the sweet dad and his siblings. 

“This is the best thing I’ve ever heard,” one viewer wrote. 

“This is just too cute for words,” commented another TikToker

“I accidentally created a family Snapchat group message and we keep in contact the same way,” another TikToker shared. 

Never underestimate the power of a butt dial!
