Just got off the phone with my mom and after crying to H about typical mom stuff and FOO issues I sent a ranting text to my brother to vent to him, because he understands.

Turns out it wasn't my brother because he recently changed jobs and had to give his cell phone back to his old job...I texted it to that number by mistake instead of his new one. Got a text back: "wrong #".

I'm so embarrassed.

At least it didn't go to your Mother. haha

omg, I know. Don't think I didn't check that at least 10 times!

Well that stinks. I'm guessing you made dinner time conversation somewhere tonight though.

I got halfway through your post and was afraid you had texted your mom too.

I'm so sorry about the rough phone call, hon. You know I understand.


((Poor soul with bro's old phone# ))

You scared me. I thought it went to your mom, too.

I know, that would have been terrible.

As much as she makes my stomach hurt and I become a complete mess after one of our phone calls and I went to pieces because she is visiting AGAIN, I would not have wanted her to read that text meant for my brother.

oh no! I'd be mortified too.

Not that I speak from experience or anything when it comes to these types of faux pas... Let's just say that, yes, it would have been MUCH worse, had you accidentally texted your mom.

ETA: (((AN)))

I texted my brother a rant about our estranged mother (who had just contacted me for the first time in years) to my brother, just to realize my phone had sent it to the last number contacted instead: you guessed it, my mother!

She then felt the need to send me a tirade of texts about what an awful, unloveable child I always was (moved out at 14, haven't seen her since I was 17) while I scrambled to download an app that would block her number.

That sucks! I'm not at the point where I cut her out of my life yet, I'm still at the point where I allow her to rip my guts, no blocking her number, just extreme caution from now on while texting my vents!

OOPS! I can so relate. In the early days of AOL I belonged to an email list. There was a member that drove me bonkers. I sent an email to another list member/friend kinda bashing her... only instead of forwarding to my friend, I hit reply and it all went to the bonkers chick!

It happens. Silver lining - you at least texted a total stranger!

Hey we all do it sooner or later.....
At least it was someone that doesn't have any impact on. It's not like sending one about your boss to your cohort at work, and whoops went to the boss......Yah my BF did that. Needless to say he was soon looking for a new job.

((((an)))) I'm so sorry you're hurting, honey.

I texted my 22 year old son that I was wearing a red bra and panties once. His name was right beside the guy I was trying to send it to. This is why older people should not be single and dating. I'm sure I will have to pay for some therapy for my son some day.
