Sometimes we send text messages we wish hadn’t. It may have been due to a sudden emotional reaction, miss-dialing from your contacts, lack of thought, or something akin to drunk dialing. Whatever the reason, almost all of us have done it at some point during the time we’ve possessed a cell phone and ended up feeling like Little Miss Whoops.
There’s a website, texts from last night, that compiles an entertaining assortment of absurdly funny text messages. The site’s tagline: “Remember that text you shouldn’t have sent last night? We do.” Although the line doesn’t truly capture the essence of the text messages they’ve compiled, all from user submissions, you’ll still find a seemingly endless list of hilarious texts. As one views the site, there are options to rate a text as a “Good Night” or a “Bad Night” and the top ones from these categories are placed into the respective categories of “Best Nights” and “Worst Nights.”
Despite the fact that I couldn’t refrain from constant laughs and chuckles as I read these texts, I couldn’t believe that some of these were really sent. It’s impossible to verify if all of the texts could be true and the site’s authors admit it. Here’s there take on it, “We have no way to verify that they are all real text messages, but we try to only post believable texts.”
OK, so what does “believable” mean? Surely what’s believable to one person could easily be considered absurd by another. What do you think?
Look over some of the texts below and tell me what you think (the three digit number preceding the text indicates the area code from which it was sent). Be warned that some of these may be considered offensive.
