Sent my new boss a text message. Accidentally put a "kiss" emoticon at the end. It's on my "most used" characters because I send it to my boyfriend. I immediately followed up with an "oh my goodness. I am so sorry. that was a typo!" text.
He laughed it off, but hell, what a way to start a new job!

You are well on your way to raise-ville, holla!!! WTG!
Ha ha! I would die!
I remember a gal at work was on the phone with a customer and ended the call with, "love ya so & so!"
I was like did you really just say that?! She was like I wasn't totally sure until you just asked!

Oh no!! Too funny!
Cell phone emoticons are dangerous things. My smiley emoticon is directly beside my "WTF? face" emoticon and I send the wrong one all the time, which completely changes the context of what I am saying. You know someone texts you that they got a new car or something and it can look like this "Wonderful!
Then I have to back peddle.
Go softly my sweet friend. You will always be a part of who I am.

“Empathy has no script. There is no right way or wrong way to do it. It’s simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of “you’re not alone.” ~ Brene Brown

OK but I got you beat. GF and I often send kissy emoticons and hugs to each other via text.
One morning I was busy and put a couple of kisses and a heart in a text and hit send. Then I noticed that it went to XWW
Talk about an oh shit! moment.

Oh I totally feel your pain! I accidentally said "I love you" as I was getting off the phone with my boss once on a business call. I was horrified. I said it as I was in the process of hanging up (in the days that I had a flip phone and would shut it with my hand) and so I couldn't even apologize and explain until I called back. So embarrassing. DH spit coke out his nose when I told him.
eta, just to clarify that it popped out automatically as it would when I hang up with DH or my children or my family. It wasn't a secret message or anything.

I read this late last night- had a chuckle then today called my wife 'Mum'- I'd just been on the phone with my Mum, I don't think it was a Freudian slip!! Ha but then- just now I texted a client from work "great, see you Monday xxx" I didn't notice until he replied "no probs babe xxx lol- gotta love predictive texts".
If anyone comes looking for me- I'm just burying myself in the garden.
