Technology is responsible for some of the most embarrassing moments in our lives. Number one: autocorrect. There’s thousands examples on the Internet of people betrayed by this very helpful feature. Not all of them… Well, actually, probably most of them aren’t real, but the small part that are is embarrassing enough.
The other thing is getting a wrong number. It’s just mortifying. Who knows why, but the second you realize you’ve called a wrong number you panic, your brain shuts down, and you hang up immediately without saying another word. But that’s almost fine. You hang up, case closed, you can forget all about it. But when you text a wrong number… Particularly when you text something extremely personal to a wrong number, it’s so embarrassing. The only possible solution in a case like that is throwing your phone in the fire; deleting the texts is just not enough.
Here are 20 people who texted the wrong number, compiled by VT.
All ye who enter here, be warned: these are all hilarious, but some are seriously cringeworthy. Proceed at your own peril.
