People Confess Their 'Sorry, Wrong Person' Text Stories

We've all done it and we must be more careful. Pay attention to who you are texting. Sending the wrong text can end marriages, heck it can shatter lives on the daily, start world wars. Don't be so confident when you start to finger play. Look at the name first and always.

Redditor u/producermaddy wanted to hear about all the texts gone wrong by fingers that are way too nimble by asking.... What's your worst "I sent this text to the wrong person" story?

Meant to send it to my friend.

Sent it to my mom instead. Alex_Sylvian

hey boss lady....

I sent my wife a text about how damn annoying my boss was being, only to find out I had sent it to my boss.

I sprinted to my boss who, thankfully, hadn't checked her phone yet. I just explained that I had accidentally sent her an "inappropriate text that was meant for my wife" and asked if I could delete it off her phone.

She and I have had a pretty amiable relationship so she felt comfortable handing me her phone, without checking, so that I could delete the text and hand it right back. spwf

I'm Off.  

I once sent "Yup, got the day off, boss thinks I'm sick" to my boss instead of my buddy. It was when I was working at Domino's when I was a teen, I just got a warning at work but it never amounted to anything. sixesand7

Whose Body?

I was at dinner with my parents and saw that my sister's husband texted in our family chat. It was something like "In 30 mins I'm doing your sexy body hard". I almost choked, and kinda wanted to see the world burn.. but told my parents to give me their phones because someone made a mistake spoiling secret santa. They were very thankful and very awkward.

Socks off....

Giphy

I once decided to be spontaneous and sent my wife s text saying: "I think it would be a good idea if I did your socks off tonight." Too bad the most recent text from my wife happened to be a group text including my mother, her mother, and her grandmother.

My mother is the hero of this story, though, because 5 minutes later she replied to the group, "Okay. Well, let us know if anything changes." Dad2us

Broken...

Got broken up with by a girlfriend. Our mutual friend was having a birthday party at my house that following weekend, so of course the ex is going to be there. I got crap faced and typed up a huge text to my buddy about how I was going to get her back when she came to the party. Sent it to her by mistake. She did not attend the party, or respond to the text. worthlesstangent

Oh Andrew....

One of the help desk team that worked for me was sending sexy texts to his wife Andrea, when he sent a very graphic, descriptive text explaining exactly what he was going to do to her when he got home. Unfortunately, he sent it to Andrew, one of our biggest clients - Andrew's name was next to Andrea's in this guy's contacts on his phone. He came rushing in to my office the second he'd sent it and I had to ring Andrew to limit the damage. Andrew was fine about it, he said he thought my guy seemed 'really friendly'!

No-one got sacked, but there was much pee-taking. veedweeb

I once sent about 50 middle finger emojis to my mom, thinking I was sending it to my brother.

She was very confused. Teej42

The Bulge.... 


My girlfriend at the time and I were really into sending "pics" to each other through Snapchat. I wore boxers which drove her bonkers. I sent a snap of it to her with a dirty comment. Only to find out as soon as I sent it to her MY FAT THUMBS PRESSED MY COWORKERS SNAP AS WELL.

I immediately called him like two hours before he normally wakes up to left him know not to open that snap. He didn't know what to do so he just unfriended me. Later that night at work he gave me his phone so I could play the snap for my eyes only. th3_warth0g

No Potatoes....

When I was 17 sent "make sure you bring some potatoes retard" meant for a friend coming over to help cook then eat dinner, accidentally sent to a girl I was planning a date for the weekend with. We did not go on the date. theBurgundyBoi

A truly stressful job can destroy your self-esteem and confidence. It's been said that people don't necessarily leave jobs, they leave management.

Indeed, bad management can leave you feeling unmoored and unsupported.

There has been a wider conversation about hostile work environments over the last couple of years now that the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded many people the opportunity to switch careers and/or call it quits with their awful jobs.

No job is worth your mental and physical health.

People shared their stories with us after Redditor yourmaeve asked the online community,

"Redditors who changed careers from a high paying but stressful job to a lower paying but low stress job, was it worth it, why or why not?"

People Share The Most Amazing Facts They Know About The Universe

There is so much we don't know about the universe.

So much, in fact, that everything there is to learn about the universe will probably never be discovered.

Mostly because the universe is constantly growing and evolving, leaving us with new things to learn about the universe literally every day.

Constantly filling our minds with uncertainty, sometimes fear, about the otherwise vast unknown.

All of this makes all facts we've discovered about the universe all the more fascinating, whether or not we have even the slightest interest in science.

Monogamous People Explain Whether Infidelity Would Result In An Instant Breakup

Romantic relationships have evolved considerably over the course of time.

Today, more and more couples who are otherwise committed to one another, in marriage or in word, have "open" relationships, where they are permitted to see other people on the side.

Also, many people are open about being in polyamorous relationships, where they might be equally committed and loving to more than one person.

Which isn't to say, however, that monogamous relationships are a thing of the past.

As many people continue to commit, body and soul, to one person and one person only.

And should one half of that couple break that commitment, it could be the effective end of that relationship.

The mark of a good piece of fiction is when one feels as if they actually know the characters.

Be it a film, television series or novel, there are some beloved characters we wish were actually our friends in real life, or whom we feel as if we've actually known all our lives.

As a result, when one of these characters dies, we sometimes feel as if we've actually lost a loved one.

Sometimes finding ourselves in a state of literal grieving.
