    Ever send a text to the wrong person, and it turned out embarrasing for you?

    I once tried to propose to a girl I was dating with a text message but accidentally sent it to the wrong girl, I’m now happily married to the wrong girl

    #875008

    If I had seen a photo first I wouldn’t have ever gone out with the 1st girl in the first place, what would have happened is I would have just gone out with the 2nd girl and then accidently sent the text to the 1st.

    OneOfMany, was that you who sent me that text today?

    Yes. The policy I endose is to never send anything by text unless you are comfortable with the whole world reading it.

    #875014

    I just recently accidentally texted my teacher “What’s for dinner” because Mom is right above Mrs. A


    in my contacts.

    Quite mortifying.

    OMG- that totally happened to me!

    So basically my friends father was really sick and she had asked me to send out his name to all my contacts via text. So i sent out like [email protected] a time to literally all my contacts- like people i would never text; my friends mother; my moms friends and so on.

    all of a sudden i get a text from a close friend of mine

    “RedNails- I think you sent me the wrong text”

    i wrote back

    “OMG- What did i send you??”

    she fwds me a msg

    “hi ma, i just wanted to tell you i broke up with so-and-so…i feel bad cuz he didnt see it coming, but i know i did the right thing…..(and A LOT more personal stuff)….”

    i was freaking out- somehow a msg i had sent mooonths before somehow saved and sent to her…and now to all of the pple i sent the ‘tehillim’ text to!

    i literally felt like i was gonna [email protected]#$%^&&!! pass out!!

    i sent out a retrieval txt; saying some bogus stuff that s/o go a hold of my phone yadda yadda yadda..

    through some miracle of my doing a chessed it was ONLY sent to her…

    so now; when i send out a mass text i am super careful!!

    The botch that I often get into is picking the wrong number of the contact. This results in some text-to-landline messages. Nothing terrible.

    “a good number of rabbanim say txting is assur”

    I know several Rabbonim who prefer that you text rather than call them.

    I had no idea that my sending a text to Eeees asking her to pick up extra milk was a sin*.

    I guess that’s what I get for being a dispecable, horrible, rotten person — I sin and sin and sin even when I didn’t intend to.

    * I texted her (as opposed to calling her) because she was probably seeing clients at the time and I didn’t want to interrupt her by actually calling.

    Wow, Wolf, you are seriously doomed:

    You sent a text message…

    To a member of the opposite gender…

    About chalav stam milk!

    Actually, it wasn’t Chalav Stam. We’re not makpid on CY, but, on the other hand, if it’s available, we get it.

    But I know that that doesn’t really change the depravity of my acts at all. I’m still a horrendous human being who sins and for whom there is no hope of salvation whatsoever.

    I honestly don’t get what the big deal is about texting. I’ve been texting since I got a phone and haven’t stopped and I text a TON! and haven’t gotten into any trouble. A few texts I got from weird random numbers I ignore! What’s so complicated? I haven’t texted any guys-only friends and family…I don’t understand why texting is assur according to some people. If you say you can get into trouble with it, fine. But you can also do a lot for torah with it! I know of a rav who texts about torah all the time. Everything can be used for good or for bad…you just have to know how to use it!

    and to be careful not to get addicted to texting, and the need for an immediate response or access to others all the time
