Don’t you just love text messaging? I do. I didn’t want to get modernized and learn something new though. I just wanted things to stay the same forever, LOL. My kids were all texting and I decided that I didn’t want to be left behind..like the horse and buggy!.
So when I started to learn to text it was with the older phones where you press a key three or four times to get to the right letter and so on..It about drove me crazy. For me it was really like pressing one key 6 or 7 times because I would make so many mistakes! When it was time to upgrade I jumped in on this cool phone where you just swipe you finger over the letter and WA LA you’ve created a word. LOVE IT!
I’ve had a couple of texting blunders though. I’ve texted the wrong person with my messages and thankfully it has been to my big kids who all have a sense of humor…so I thought I would share!Not long ago I was texting my 15 year old Son about going camping with his youth group. This was regarding sleeping arrangements and tenting..I accidentally sent it to his 34 year old Sister..
Me: You are going to have to share a tent with …. because we can’t find another tent. Are you ok with that?
Daughter: Well..I guess I could do that. I don’t know this guy, but if you say it’s ok…then I guess it will be ok!
I was texting my Son in Law about my grandson and his napping and accidentally texted our Son..who is working and doesn’t have any children..
Me: Shall I give Ry a nap today?
Son: Okay..Can I take one too? Pick me!..Pick me!
Me: Oh brother, I can’t tell you how many silly texts I’ve sent out
Son: That’s ok..I am a bit jealous of Ry though..Life isn’t fair! I want a nappy dangit!!!
Then..just the other day..
Me: Ok, I’m out of the bathtub now..R U going to get in now?
Son in Law: Uhhh NO!
How embarrassing..this was meant for my 10 year old Daughter who was waiting for my text (I don’t like to yell through the house) about getting into my bathtub after me…(oh I was just soaking..not scrubbing LOL)
Thankfully my family has a great sense of humor!
Share your text blunders with me so I know I’m not alone!! Please
