We have all done it. At least once. Maybe twice. Maybe 100 times. It’s a 21st century problem resulting from our need to interact too quickly utilizing technology. We havevall sent an email to the wrong person. Maybe a wrongly done “cc”. Maybe wrongfully letting email autofill an email address. But that is not even what I am here to talk about. The last time I sent a wrong email was many years ago. But, of course, I probably just jinxed myself. I’ll have to prepare a post about how I jinxed myself.
I’m here to talk about sending the wrong person a text. That I have done with much frequency. At times. It’s actually technology’s fault. Now, while I can say I’ve done this with great frequency, I can remember many of my mis-sent text messages. And, more often than not they have been funny mistakes. Although, one was quite bad.
Someone had sent me a text last mother’s day wishing me a great day. I thanked them although I didn’t know who it was. I figured it would be rude to ask who it was. Although, I could have answered with my favorite new phrase “new phone, who dis?”. Everytime I hear that I giggle. And, I often use it in face-to-face conversations. It’s funny. Regardless of my love of that phrase, I didn’t use it. I did something bad, instead. I tried to carry a text conversation assuming that I knew the person. Never ever do that.
I proceeded to ask the texter if they had heard the latest horrible (and I mean truly abhorrent) thing person X had done. Well, you know how this story turns out. I was texting with person X. Oops. Wrong text. Wrong person. Next.
I’m still waiting for the horse’s head in my bed.
