Not sharing them with anyone! haha'" -u/KnifeFightAcademy

15. Oopsies!

17. The afternoon sh*t

"Not me but my friend. When we were younger (maybe 13) she had a habit of sometimes texting me when she was taking a shit. Just a text saying 'I'm taking my afternoon shit right now.'

His response to her text was a 'Well that's nice (friends name), are you still coming to soccer practice later?'" -u/RaptureHarvest

18. Oopsies again 

"A female co-worker said she was going to find me a girlfriend. I sent her a text saying anyone she would propose would have to like sex because... well, I like sex. Okay, came the reply.

19. Rough 12 hours

"I had to go to work early one morning and my girlfriend at the time had stayed over the night before. I left at like 4:30 and she was still asleep.

Sitting next to him for the next 12 hours in the ambulance was ROUGH." -u/sam_neil

24. Not going too well 

I once meant to text my girlfriend 'hey boo how's it going? I'm just getting started on homework ' and accidentally texted this guy from a dojo I took karate lessons with. The worst part is he replied, 'Oh not much' and tried to continue the conversation. I felt so awkward lmao." -u/starryknight11
