One Way to Break the Ice
One morning, I received an unexpected text from a new
friend I barely knew. “Hey, come here for lunch and have sex
with me.” I wasn’t sure what to reply, knowing the text was
meant for her husband and not me. Next time I saw her, we
both died laughing!
Y;r Boss Said What?
I started a new job and texted my supervisor that I had made
my first sale. She replied: “Proud of you.” Or so she said. The
text I got was, “F*$k you!”
I T;ted S;e;e Else’s Grandma
I like to send photos and little snippets from my life to my
grandma. This went on for a month or so. One day, I finally
got a response: “It seems like you have a beautiful family, but
I’m not your grandma.” Yeah, turned out I’d saved more than
one number for grandma in my phone. That explains why she
never texted back.
I Fl;ted with a Ch;ch Eld;
Once I texted a church elder and meant to end the text with

I Broadcast My Insec;ities to a R;m Full
of Business Professi;als
I’m a professional speaker who talks about the importance of
positive self-talk to business audiences. The evening before
an important business keynote, I recorded some affirmations
for my private use on my computer. During my PowerPoint
presentation the next day, the recordings suddenly and unexpectedly blared out over the auditorium sound system to
the benefit of my (mostly male) audience. What did it say you
ask? “I have a SLIM and SEXY body!” I’m still mortified as I
write this years later!
I Invited Myself to My Student’s H;se f;
I meant to text my boyfriend, “What’s for dinner?” I sent it to
the parent of one of my students instead. It could have been a
lot worse, but it was still embarrassing!
I C;plained Ab;t My G;l;iend—To My
One time when I was on a trip, I sat down to email a friend
who’d asked me how my relationship was going with my
then girlfriend. I went into great detail in the email about how
I wasn’t feeling the relationship anymore and how we were
going different ways in life. I even made a bad joke about her
having a big butt. Unfortunately, I accidentally sent the email to
my girlfriend, because her name started with the same letter
as my friend’s name. I panicked and tried to hack her email,
but I couldn’t answer her security code questions because, as
it turned out, I didn’t know her as well as I thought I did.
