Messages That Shouldn't be Shared by Text
I just heard my phone inform me that I received a text. By the time I picked it up, it was in the middle of displaying a message from my mom that said "...grandma passed away last night...."

So I feel a brief flood of emotion while quickly trying to get to the rest of the message only to find out that "[My brother-in-law's] grandma passed away last night." and I immediately feel an enormous sense of relief.

Then I realize I was relieved to read that someone's grandma died, and now I feel like an asshole all because my mom picked an inappropriate means to share the news... Dodgy

and it got me wondering what messages have you received over text that probably should have been communicated differently?

It wasn't a text, but a couple years ago when my younger daughter was here with her daughter for Christmas, we got an interesting status update.

She was in the kitchen on my old laptop, I was in the living room on my laptop, other daughter was on her phone, son in his room on his computer when this popped up on younger daughter's status....Well, I guess by Christmas next year Z will have a baby brother or sister.

Ohmy

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Is "Z" your younger daughter's daughter?

That would be an interesting way to hear the news...

Um... one time on Facebook, someone posted about how sad they were that I died... they referred to me by first name, and I have an extremely rare first name.

So I posted like, "You guys, what? Are you punking me?"

Nope, turns out a local athlete that could have redeemed my college's dismal football team had died...

WHOOPS, I looked like a total asshole on Facebook.

Yes, that's how we learned there was a baby on the way.

I glanced at this quickly as I scrolled past, and the first two ran together as:

1. I just passed away.

Which would be interesting...

... this is my signature!

I texted someone that I was watching The Notebook and eating ice cream once.

Probably shouldn't have done that... Blush
