Ever send a text to the wrong person, and it turned out embarrasing for you?May 16, 2012 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #875007
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 girlMay 16, 2012 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #875008🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
Did you get to see her photo first?May 16, 2012 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #875009dhl144Member
texting is so scary!! I text a lot dont get me wrong but so many mistakes can happen through texting that wouldnt happen otherwise…May 16, 2012 8:37 pm at 8:37 pm #875010OneOfManyParticipant
YES…I won’t say the entire story on here but it was REALLY embarrassing…May 16, 2012 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #875011
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?May 16, 2012 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #875012OneOfManyParticipant

I just recently accidentally texted my teacher “What’s for dinner” because Mom is right above Mrs. A
in my contacts.
Quite mortifying.May 17, 2012 3:19 am at 3:19 am #875018
writersoul- youch 🙂
i sent a heartfelt text of tears to the wrong person. BIG oops. i also email chatted my bro instead of my friend. Quite the awkward moment, heh heh. YeahhhhhMay 17, 2012 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #875019yentingyentaParticipant
oh ya been there done that. i have 2 contacts i text-one is ‘sara’ and the other is ‘sari’. i was telling sari about something funny sara did but chose the wrong contact! boy did sara bug me about that mistake! after that i changed sari’s name in my phone to something else so i wouldnt make the same mistake againMay 17, 2012 2:19 pm at 2:19 pm #875020SayIDidIt™Participant
I know a company that the secratery sent a private internal email about one of the clients to their entire email list! It was not funnyMay 17, 2012 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #875022RedNails19Participant
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 10@ 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 _!@#$%^&&!! 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!!May 17, 2012 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm #875023RedNails19Participant
also- one of my friends was engaged- and sent her chosson some mushy love email- and to ALL her email contacts as well!! mhm!!! we all got to see it!!LOL- well not so funny!
but yea!May 17, 2012 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #875024HaLeiViParticipant
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.May 17, 2012 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #875025apushatayidParticipant
“a good number of rabbanim say txting is assur”
I know several Rabbonim who prefer that you text rather than call them.May 17, 2012 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #875026
ooh, rednails those are realllly bad stories. Hope you recovered from your embarrassment :). Those stories are ones that cld be used to teach lessons abt dangers of texting!May 18, 2012 12:08 am at 12:08 am #875027Shticky GuyParticipant

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.May 18, 2012 2:41 am at 2:41 am #875029
Wow, Wolf, you are seriously doomed:
You sent a text message…
To a member of the opposite gender…
About chalav stam milk!May 18, 2012 3:08 am at 3:08 am #875030WolfishMusingsParticipant
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!May 18, 2012 4:28 am at 4:28 am #875032
and to be careful not to get addicted to texting, and the need for an immediate response or access to others all the time
