One time, an ex of mine with whom I’d had a pretty tumultuous relationship/breakup/attempt to be friends again sent me a text message letting me know she was engaged and would be married soon.

I congratulated her, and then sent a text to a friend with my real feelings on the subject.

Except I sent that second one to her as well.


Turns out, I’m far from alone in this kind of text foible. Just listen to these anonymous contributors sharing their own phone failures.

WHen you’re saying anything that’s not innocuous, probably double check your recipient. You may be glad you did.
