This new teen prank proves that times really have changed

We try our best to keep up with 'the youth', but honestly, it's a tiring business.

'Squad goals' this, 'naked Snapchat' that and now a new one: 'to get memed on'.

A new 'prank' which involves the none-more-hilarious 'trick' of texting someone to say you've lost your phone, and then waiting to see how long it takes them to realise that you actually have your phone, otherwise you wouldn't be able to text them, is apparently sweeping the nation. If you fall for it, you've been memed on.

We've done something similar - using our phone light in order to search for our phone, searching for our glasses while wearing them - and we can tell you it's not much fun.

Seriously kids, this is not a prank. What happened to tying someone's shoelaces together, or setting a car on fire or something?
