I Sent Pict;es to the Wr;g Guy
I was texting my boyfriend some scantily clad photos while he
was away on a trip. While I was sending a photo, my ex happened to text me. Somehow, I must have clicked on something that indicated I wanted to send him the photo, rather
than my boyfriend. Much to my dismay, my ex opened the
picture. Needless to say, he was not pleased. Fortunately, my
boyfriend and I found humor in the incident.
My F;st iPh;e: A New Ye;’s Eve P;ty
My parents gave me the first-generation iPhone as a Christmas
present right after it came out. A few days later, I had a New
Year’s Eve party, drank too much, and woke up the next day
without my phone. While cleaning up the mess, I found my
brand new iPhone submerged in a cup of beer, where it had
been soaking all night. I had to spend $700 to replace the very
generous gift from Dad and Mom.

My Awkw;d (Online) M;ent
I was browsing Facebook on my phone and tapped on someone I thought I recognized. I started tapping on a few photos
and tagged myself in one of them accidentally. I didn’t know
the person at all.

A Faceb;k Fa; Pas
One night during the a.m. hours, I was scrolling through a
friend’s profile and hit ‘Like’ on a status from two years ago.
Even though I undid the ‘Like,’ I’m sure Facebook sent a notification to inform them I was prowling through their years-old
I Sleep-T;ted My M;
The other morning at 6 a.m., I was woken by a text from my
mom asking out of the blue if I wanted to borrow her camera.
I grumpily wondered why she thought it was ever OK to text
that early in the morning, especially to offer her camera when
I am terrible at photography. Later in the day when I was a bit
more awake, I looked at the text conversation again and realized that I had sleep-texted her the word “camera” in the very
early a.m. Turns out I was the one who had rudely interrupted

I Missed Ev;y Call f; S; M;ths
For more than six months, all my calls mysteriously went
to voicemail. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with my
phone. I had just learned to live with it when one day, a friend
pointed out the problem to me: My iPhone had been on Do
Not Disturb mode all this time without me realizing it. I didn’t
know the little moon symbol in Control Center meant anything.
