9 of the most excruciating examples of sending a text to the wrong person

The ease of texting entirely wrong person has become the bane of many absent minded-messenger's lives.

But it happens.

We recommend reading the stories people have shared on Reddit, so you can feel better about our own text blunders.

Get ready to really cringe. Some of these are pretty NSFW.

It turns out, we text the wrong people all the time....

....At work

1.

After drunkenly making out with a co worker, I sent a hungover text to apologise and make sure we were both clear it was a mistake none of our coworkers have to know about. I sent it too another coworker with the same name, the office gossip...

2.

I met a girl at a music festival and we had some fun together while listening to the Beach Boys. After a few weeks I sent her the message "every time I hear the Beach Boys I get a boner." Unfortunately, I sent it to a woman with the same first name and who is the wife of a client.

... Involving family

3.

Something like, "he passed away early this morning, it was sudden, the doctors say it was in his sleep and peaceful."

It was supposed to be to my wife about a friend's dad who died.

Instead I sent it to one of my brother's who asked, "have you talked to him lately?" about our other brother a couple of days before, and I hadn't answered.

I felt so bad for scaring the shit out of him.

My brother and I were flying back from my other brothers place. He's sitting next to me on the plane and I get a text from him

"I can't wait to be inside you"

Ex-boyfriend and I were drunk and in a fight. He called me a c**t and stormed out of my house. I was texting my best friend and said "Haha -name- just called me a c**t and ran out"...yeah, accidentally sent that to my dad, who was scheduled to meet ex-boyfriend for the first time the following morning.

8.

Texted my friend I'd call her back after I was done pooping but I ate White Castle the night before so it may be a good while. I even put the little poo emojis at the end of the text.

Sent it to the painter I had been corresponding with all day who was actually downstairs starting on the kitchen. I wanted to die.

"Hope you're naked when I get there."

Sent to my son's daycare provider; she's 65 and 300 pounds.

Intended for my wife of the same first name.

The daycare lady handled the text well.

"You don't want me to be naked. I'm glad you guys still have a spark."
