I've not long had a baby and could really do with a haircut .... as I'm breast feeding I've just contacted a mobile hairdresser and arranged an appointment but I was also messaging my Husband at the same time and thought I was typing to him when I replied 'she has had lots of likes and nothing negative on Google' And I've sent it to the hairdresser instead...I know its not that bad but I'm sat here with a hot face! blush

Has anyone else sent a message they wish the could retract?...some juicier ones than mine would be welcome to make me feel better smile

Any business worth their salt would expect to be checked out so don't be embarrassed!

I once attempted to forward an email from a clueless boss to a colleague with the comment 'bit like shutting the stable door after the fucking horse has bolted!'. But I hit reply by accident and sent it back to the boss.

Ooops.

I once wrote kind retards at the bottom of an email instead of kind regards. Wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't to a charity for learning disabilities! Luckily they knew me well and I emailed back to apologise as soon as I realised my mistake!

I check my emails very carefully now!

There was a sh*t stirrer in my larger group of friends. We all socialised together because of a shared hobby. I didn't like Gemma (not real name!!!) because she was always trying to one-up people and she also wasn't that intelligent, but she'd attack frequently in the bit horsy manner possible.

I was at work and texting my friend (same group) about a problem she had in relation to Gemma. I said, "Don't worry about Gemma, she's an idiot." And sent it to Gemma.

Cue almighty ruckus as Gemma (who didn't work so had plenty of free time) played mortally wounded victim whilst doing her usual stirring forwarding my text to rest of the group..saying I was calling her mentally ill!

I once texted OH telling him exactly what I was going to do to him when he got home on leave that night but accidentally sent it to my deaf father who I was texting at the same time blush

There's one letter difference between my brothers name and DPs name (and it's the middle letter, so right next to each other in my phone book)
I once sent DP a very detailed description of what disgusting sexy things I wanted to do to him ... Yep sent it to my brother!

My friend writes as a hobby, and will often send me paragraphs of text to see if it "reads well" so for example, if it's clear where the characters are stood/sitting etc.

He (after asking) sent me a paragraph of an explicit sex scene between two men. I read it through, made a couple of suggestions, copy and pasted it back to him.

Except I didn't copy paste it back to him.

I copy pasted it back to my very God fearing sheltered sweet natured work colleague.

Hmm, during my internet dating days I texted the wrong guy to confirm our date. Ooops.

I was seeing a guy who was really lovely but not my type. I met him one night in the pub and ended it. He looked a bit shocked. I went to the toilet to give him a moment to compose himself and texted my friend saying "Just gave X the boot. Am hiding in the toilet at pub, hope he's not crying when I go back out!"

Only of course, I sent it to him ... he was very nice about it.

Thank you all, you've been very kind to indulge me with your own cringe examples and to help me to feel better / have a good chuckle grin

I will be seeing her next week so will make my grovelling apologies then and hope she doesn't mess my hair up as revenge for Googiling her smile
