There are a lot of cool things about technology but my one of my favorites is the accidental text.

Like sometimes you write one thing but autocorrect sends something totally different.

Or then there is the right text sent to the wrong person.

It can happen very easily when you are texting with more than one person at the same time.

Like you mean to text you husband, “I totally popped out of work early. No one noticed.” but you accidentally send it to your boss instead.

Well, my handyman and I have a good rapport but I was still surprised to have this exchange with him the other night. My text is highlighted green…

I was not at the pool. Nor did I realize the handyman and I were calling each other pet names like “bears.”

I made a mental note to tell him that I’d prefer something more like “Honey Bear” or “Sexy Bear” and then I just texted him back, “Luv u 2!”

Not totally a lie because he is super reasonable and does great work.

Turns out the text was meant for his daughter and he was very embarrassed. Like “OMG” embarrassed.

It seems like I might get that grouting done for free.
