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?


Mamma Mia...

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

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
