Have You Received a Text That Wasn't Meant For You?

Have You Received a Text That Wasn't Meant For You?

An Australian cricket champion's life just got a lot more complicated after he accidently sent a message intended for his mistress to his wife.


Apparently, the message read: "Hey beautiful, I'm just talking to my kids, the back door's open." When his wife received the text she sent him the message: "You loser, you sent the message to the wrong person."


While I've never gotten myself into such an incriminating (and sad!) predicament, I have gotten quite a few unsolicited texts from a booty grazer — a booty grazer is someone who sends one text message to the masses in hopes of hooking up with any of the responders for a, how shall I say it, booty call. Have you ever received a naughty or nice text message that wasn't meant for you?

I had two mutual friends who were hiding their "love" for each other. My friends call me Tina and the guys name started with a T as well... needless to say a few times I got his texts and it was quite obvious that there was something more than a friendship going on there! One time a few years back I sent a message annoyed by my boyfriend to my boyfriend on accident. I was one of those people who texted so much that they had their friends locations memorized in their phone. Well this faithful day my then boyfriend just got his first cell phone and replaced the first name in my N's so he got my text instead of my friend Nichole. OOPS!! He thought it was funny though.

Yea I once got a text from some random guy. He thought I was some girl he knew from before. I texted back and said that i wasn't her. He texted me back as if I was that person. It was really weird.

I got one from a friend that said "Mother said to sandpaper rosin", which seemed completely random to me! It was supposed to go to another friend, who texted the first friend asking what to do with a new block of rosin in order to get it all dusty for a violin bow.I also know someone who received a text from an unfamiliar number that said "I love you too"... O.o

YES! I once received a random text from presumably a guy sending a late night booty call to some person, obviously not me!! I was so shocked and suprised when I got it, thinking it was a joke, but it wasn't! Still one of the weirdest, but funniest things ever to happen.

worst yet. this belongs in a confessional its so bad.so my best girlfriend of 18 years stopped showing up for class for about a week and wouldn;t return my phone calls. this didn't necessarily worry me because we had one of those friendships where we wouldn't talk for several weeks but then we'd catch up and all was back to normal. anyhow, i finally got ahold of her and she said she was sorry but she had a gyno appointment and they told her her pap was abnormal, and that they found cancerous cells during the procedure. (A. cancerous cells during a pap smear? interesting) she also said not to worry because they gave her antibiotics that would clear it up in no time. (B. didnt know antibiotics cured cancer!) so, i texted my brother who had unfortunately contracted an std from a former girlfriend and I asked (based on obvious suspicion) "when you had that std, did you have to take antibiotics" he responded with "yeah why?" and i said "well because ________ said she was taking antibiotics because her gyno found cancerous cells during a pap smear but i'm pretty sure its the gonnohrea" unfortunately i sent THAT one to my best friend.we didnt speak for a year.

I think mine wins! The girl I had been dating on and off was at my house for a barbecue. Since I was hosting I was busy in the kitchen and talking to other people. I got a text from her that said "Hey babe. I'm at a bbq. I really don't want to be here, but I'm trying to get out of it. When can I see you again?" I walked past her and then two seconds later sent her a message that said "I think you sent that to the wrong person. If you don't want to be here then leave."She stayed. But I haven't called her since!

Yeah... someone send me one saying "Can I smack it?" I knew they sent it to the wrong person because they have never said something like that to me.

I received a text message with a pornagraphic photo and the text said "Spoiled Brat". I texted back and said they had the wrong person and to kindly stop sending pornographic photos to my phone. they kept harrassing me until I called the number up and yelled at them and it ended up being kids and I got the father on the phone who profusely apologized. I hope the kids were punished severely! :P
