To go and crawl into a pit of shame and never show my face again?

From the OP who bought you "Girl and Skirt vs Wind and Tesco Window..."

I've just sent a picture of my boobs to my FIL.

I'm not really a flasher-type person (aside from in Tescos, clearly) however my OH likes getting the odd boob snap. I've only ever done it once before.
I'm working away this weekend and OH is pining so I send a quick snap, nothing fancy - just my knockers.

But I haven't sent it to him, have I? Oh no, because that wouldn't be horrifically embarrassing. I instead send it to FIL, similar first name, same surname, text message above OHs.

I can't think of a solution but to go and hide away forever. AIBU just to never see PIL again?

Any ideas how I can salvage this?

no, not really, bad one

AgentZigzag Fri 08-Nov-13 22:04:28

Keep your fingers crossed he doesn't send anything back eh?

shock

OMG! Have you thought about leaving the country?

I would text FIL apologising, and apologising some more and explain the mistake. I'm not sure you can just pretend it didn't happen!

blush wow op. Think I would emigrate to Australia!

Don't think my fil would ever recover! Poor poor you. Have you told your dh?

Ooops... joke it off with an 'oops' wrong person.

And never speak of it again.

So funny!!!!!
I cannot think of any reasonable or plausible excuse.
How's he likely to respond?
So funny.....

Brilliant!! Good luck seeing all the family at the next lot of birthdays/Christmas!

TartyMcTart Fri 08-Nov-13 22:07:46

Will he recognise it's you from the picture? wink

Supergem Fri 08-Nov-13 22:07:53

shock How far away is FIL? Any chance of getting round there and burning the phone before he sees it!? Here's hoping he doesn't send you something back in return!

So your face isn't in it? Could you text FIL again, pretending its a text to everyone in your address book, & saying 'my phones been hacked, don't open any photo attachments' <clutching at straws>

ArtemisatBrauron Fri 08-Nov-13 22:08:40

ha!!!! my FIL would be utterly bemused. Cancel Christmas perhaps?

AngelsLieToKeepControl Fri 08-Nov-13 22:08:44

Send a follow up text saying 'can you believe XXX' sent me that by mistake haha, then send another one saying 'whoops I meant to forward that message to dh not you, please don't tell xxx if you ever meet her' crap excuse but it's the best I have.

grin grin grin though, how mortifying.

AgentZigzag Fri 08-Nov-13 22:09:22

It'll have the OPs name from his contact list on it Tarty.

Change your name quickly OP wink

Has he replied? Does he know how to look at picture messages on his phone?

<quietly snurks to self>

ArgyMargy Fri 08-Nov-13 22:09:35

Ha ha epic fail.

Hassled Fri 08-Nov-13 22:09:38

There's no chance you've had some recent breastfeeding related issues that he knows about? You could have been showing him what you meant when you said your nipples were sore or summat <clutches mad, mad straws>.

Objection Fri 08-Nov-13 22:09:47

Not my face.

But i am wearing the special necklace they bought me for my last birthday...

nitrox Fri 08-Nov-13 22:10:15

Lol at supergem!

ShatnersBassoon Fri 08-Nov-13 22:10:19

WillSing has the solution.

Objection Fri 08-Nov-13 22:10:20

Oh no. Oh no. What if he thinks I'm saying thank you for the necklace in my own "special" way?

Norudeshitrequired Fri 08-Nov-13 22:10:20

Hahahahahahah,

BillyBanter Fri 08-Nov-13 22:10:24

Send FIL another text message saying that your slightly drunk friend thought it would be funny to send a pic of her boobs to your DH (while you were in another room, to see if he noticed it wasn't you but has sent it to the wrong number.

He will know this is not true but if he is a good man he will pretend he believes you.

I remember tesco window skirt thread and I'm very much a fan of your work btw.
