Texting Typos

Have you ever sent a text without rereading it to check for errors, only to find later that you really messed up? Today I was texting my mother-in-law, she had just gotten a cortisone shot yesterday. I was asking how she was feeling and if she thought the shot would work. Suddenly I got a text back from her, asking if it was Ana Lee texting. I was thinking to myself, "of course it is, who else would it be?" Then I saw the text I had accidentally sent her. It said, "Do you think the sh*t will work?" NOT do you think the shOt will work?. Oh man, oh man! I never swear so it was a little shocking to my poor mother-in-law. She was completely understanding--and it could have been worse--but I was still embarrassed!

The funny thing is, this has happened to me a few times before! One time I was texting a guy to tell him I would be over in a "sec" and it turned into "sex." Geez! I sent texts to correct that so quickly!

Sometimes texting typos can be so awkward. Have you had any personal experiences with this kind of thing? Or am I the only moron that doesn't check before sending?

  1. Oh my goodness! That must've been really awkward. I've never had any really embarrassing typos, but about a year ago I was sending my boyfriend a mushy little text that said, "No, you're the best kisser!" We were fighting over who was better at kissing- lame I know. But the worst part was that I sent it to the wrong person. Ya know what was even worse than that? I sent it to my Bishop's phone- his number was right underneath my bf's on the contact list. I was seriously about to cry. I noticed it right away and apologized. But just to mess with me he sent one back saying, "My wife sure thinks so." I'm glad he was so chill about it.

    But I was so embarrassed- it still makes my face flush when I think about it. Just had to share that with someone :)
