Just be more attentive. Slow down a little. I've NEVER sent a text to somebody that I meant to send to somebody else.

My fail texts.

1. "I love you" sent to the wrong girl
She loved me too

2. "Life is expensive and shit" sent to my landlady
She asked if this was going to make rent hard for me to pay

3. "WTF is up with this girl, I think she must be unbalanced" sent to said girl
She raged like none other.

Unrelated, one of my other favorite text exchanges went down with one of my Ex GFs. I had lost all my contacts on my phone and I never memorized her number. She sent me a text message commenting about an old car that reminded her of a car I once owned.

ex: I just saw an old Trooper
Me: Who is this?
ex: One of your Exs
Me: Which one?

The fallout went something like this: I hate you! I'm a lesbian now! You suck! etc... defriended me on facebook. It was so worth it.

Can't believe not one person has said the obvious..... USE GOOGLE VOICE! Completely different app/phone #. Unless you're afraid Google will track you're imaginary sexual positions

Don't mix mobile devices between work and personal.

My GF and I send each other stuff all the time and I feel like I have to eyeball the name of the recipient a good while before I feel comfortable to hit send. Even after I hit send, I find myself double checking just to make sure I sent the message to the right person. I've sent some "hi honey" and "I love you" to the wrong people in the past.

Maybe an app that detects a dirty word and then pops up warning if it's not sent to the correct person?
If thats the extent of your dirty text you have fook all to worry about

This baffles me. I've never sent a text to the wrong person. I can't imagine how absentminded one would have to be to do such.

One solution is to not text. Instead, install a separate messaging app (whatsapp, or maybe something more obscure) that only you two use.

Maybe offering to finger your boss will get you a raise

If you're going to send cock pics, why are you holding out on us?

If you were really good, you could make those wrong numbers into right numbers.

Use ambiguous but suggestive word replacements... Maybe you will help clean her carpets tomorrow?

You're assuming she exists, and they're not just pen pals, AND he doesn't just cream his britches immediately in her mere presence. That's a lot to assume here on AT

I love how everyone is labeled "clearly an idiot" at least once on the internet.

I'll bet good money your number is far above the "at least once."
