Bailee was visiting a friend’s house when her friend’s phone was taken away as a punishment. Minutes later, her friend’s dad slid a note under the bedroom door.
So my friend got her phone taken away and her dad slid this under her door pic.twitter.com/d91I89T8hi

He joked in traditional dad-joke style:
“Why aren’t you answering me?
Bailee told Dearly that even though her friend was in trouble, they both started laughing right away. The two friends posted a photo of the drawing on Twitter.
Immediately, people started joining in on the joke:
I would write blocked and slide it back under.

Some people critiqued the drawing as not accurate:
no since she's getting the paper she's "receiving the texts," his "texts" to her should be on the left side

The tweet gained major traction over Independence Day weekend. At press time, it had 8,100 retweets and 15,000 likes. It even made it to the front page on Reddit on July 4.
Bailee told Dearly that the dad was told that his tweet went viral. But her friend still doesn’t have her phone back.
