Accidental Texts: The Hilarious Responses That Strangers Receive After Sending Texts To The Wrong Number

Published: Dec 24, 2022

Accidents happen – it’s just a natural part of life. You take a bad fall or hit somebody’s car because you were distracted. We’re humans. We make mistakes. The worst of them, though, is accidentally texting somebody you don’t even know. 

It’s even funnier the responses that they send back, which can range from total confusion to something way out of the left field. Needless to say, it’s absolutely hilarious to see how creative people get. 

Ummm…Janet, Who?

The first thing we can’t help but wonder is what this Janet did that was so awful. Surely, it couldn’t have been that horrible to send her such a mean text. Whoever the person is that sent the text was truly upset about not receiving a pie recipe.

Going all Hansel and Gretel on Janet is a bit of a drastic move, though. Throwing her in the oven is something that only a truly mean-spirited person would do. Did she really deserve that?

Introduction To Tinder

As the world of dating apps goes (and for anyone who has just started using Tinder), it could be a bit strange and off-putting. The thing with Tinder is that you get matched with people who barely supply any information and it’s pretty much solely based on photos. Some go on the app and find love, while others just go on it to have fun.

In this particular case, the date most likely didn’t go too swimmingly for Ashly and she made a beeline for the exit. However, the person she went out with clearly felt differently. 

A Cruel Scam Or A Simple Mistake?

It’s not entirely clear if this particular text exchange is an honest mistake on the sender’s part or if it is part of an elaborate scheme. The lady who revealed that she’s pregnant may be scamming the other person by trying to get help for child support.

While the person who received it may have nearly had a heart attack, luckily, the sender confirmed she had the wrong number. Ah, crisis averted! We’re glad the person was smart enough to not fall for it. 

Saved By Google Once Again

It’s unimaginable what our lives would be like if we didn’t have Google and we’re not sure how we lived without it before. Rarely do you receive a text from somebody asking for medical advice. Nevertheless, having it be from a doctor.

Hannah rose to the challenge, even supplying the doctor with an answer. The doctor responded to her hours later, but they had also listened to her advice! Thank you, WebMD for saving somebody’s life.  

Curiosity Killed The Kitchen Cat

Everybody is familiar with the famous saying, “Curiosity killed the cat.” So, in this instance, the sender of this text said to not ask what the rest of their kitchen looked like, but the other person’s reply was very humorous.

It’s curious as to what the original conversation was about that prompted somebody to send a photo of their kitchen pantry. We think it must have been a rather strange conversation to begin with, and, furthermore, now we want to know what their kitchen really does look like.

Is Cory Really In The House?

Most Disney kids probably remember the comedy show Cory In The House starring Kyle Massey as Cory Baxter. If you’ve seen the series, then this will make perfect sense. And, if you haven’t, then this won’t be as funny to you.

This text exchange is too great because both parties certainly had a good laugh. We’re wondering what will happen when the person connects with the real Corey at some point. Maybe they’ve also seen the show and would get the joke?

A Pleasant Error That Ended Up Working Out Quite Well

Errors happen, especially when it comes to texting. This lady was simply trying to plan out a nice email for her and her friends to enjoy, but she texted the wrong number. And, this wrong number got a whole lot of instructions. 

Source: Parent Influence

It ended up working out, however. She accidentally texted Qdoba and found out that they cater. So, if her original plan hits the fan, then she can rely on them as a backup option. It’s truly a win-win for all involved!

A Selfie For A Selfie

There are times when people receive messages that only consist of photos and no words. It’s a tricky matter to figure out what to even reply to those types of messages. For this kind of interaction, the men only needed to send a selfie back to the women to signify they had the wrong number.

Source: Imgur

Their photo response was funny and surely the two ladies got a laugh out of it! We would have, certainly. On the plus side, both parties have a hilarious reminder of the incident.

Not The Robin They Were Hoping For

Sometimes, people see it as a waste of time to engage with texts from a wrong number, while others indulge in the mistake. This particular person just couldn’t be bothered and their photo response is a testament to that.

We have to admit – the response is received a hearty laugh from us, and maybe it did from the sender, too. Props to the recipient for editing an already existing Batman and Robin meme because they obviously didn’t have the time to just write back that they had the wrong number.

There’s No Future For This Relationship

When people break up with someone over text, it’s a real blow and not the most mature way to handle the situation. In a perfect world, the right thing would be to ask the person to meet face to face and do it that way.

The person’s response on the other end was perfectly ironic and fitting given the message sent by the heartbreaker in question. Maybe, the sender will realize they shouldn’t end things over text message, but in person. Sometimes, sending a text to the wrong person has its benefits.

A Standard Cat

It’s not uncommon for people to get straight to the point in a text message, with no prior information given. While it can be hilarious at times, mostly it’s plain irritating. Obviously, we would hope that the sender would have had some sort of existing conversation with the intended recipient before hitting send.

We can’t even imagine the person’s reaction when they get a photo with a message saying, “This is the standard cable.” The receiver’s response was unrelated to the original message, but it’s amusing that they responded anyways!

Kimber Is Pretty Lost

The message from both the sender and recipient is fairly comical and it can be established that Kimber doesn’t understand how a phone works. She called the wrong number and still proceeded to also text that same number.

Source: Imgur

We can try to explain what really happened here as best as we can, but we’ll get confused ourselves. This Kimber person is lost and clueless, considering the fact that she even signed her name at the end of her text response.

Brotherly Love But Not From Actual Brothers

This is a really sweet text exchange from two people who are using the situation to create some laughs and to keep it light. It’s heartwarming that the person who sent the text loves their brother so much and wanted to send them a message about it.

We’d say that the best thing about this entire text chain is the response from the recipient. And, what’s even better, is that he wanted to know if the sender was a Reddit user…which, we suspect, was because he wanted to post the exchange. He probably knew it would go viral!

Two Smarty Pants In One Text Exchange

There’s moments when you accidentally send a text to the wrong person and they reply back saying you’ve made a mistake. However, in this particular case the person obviously didn’t get the memo. The sender named Tajlea sent the same message twice, and, whether it was a mishap of the phone or her own doing, that’s annoying.

Source: awwmemes

She didn’t back off either! The recipient clearly does not have the number that Tajlea needs, so why keep badgering the person? At that point, Taljea is just running in circles.

Determined Is An Understatement

The read receipts iMessage feature on the iPhone has been the source of problems for its users. Some people react differently – regardless, it’s a source of frustration when a person leaves you on read and they never respond back.

In this case, the sender didn’t give up. Persistence is key, but maybe this went a bit too far. We completely understand that the recipient didn’t want to respond considering the sender kept sending gibberish. Didn’t they get the message?! Apparently not.

Merry Christmas And Heartfelt Wishes

Every wrong number case is different: some end in tears, laughter, anger, or plain confusion. As far as we’ve witnessed, it’s fairly unlikely to come across text exchanges that are insulting or too inappropriate to share online. In some instances, both parties involved end up quite perplexed. 

Source: Imgur

With this one, a heartwarming connection was created between sender and receiver. The receiver got a message mistaking her for her mom and the response was wildly unexpected. Luckily, both of their days were made with such a wonderful Christmas exchange. It’s beyond true that good things come when we least expect them!

Well, That’s Awkward…

Our first thought is how cringey this text appears. If Brandon is as awkward as he is through texting, then we can only imagine how he is in person. Shannon pulled a prank on this poor guy. 

Source: Reddit

Brandon’s nervousness is visibly showing through how his texting comes across. If he keeps this up, then he will probably not get his dream girl. But, we have to give the guy some credit for making the attempt and sending that text, despite how embarrassing the entire thing seems. We feel bad for when Brandon actually sees Shannon in person and has to confront the situation (or ignore it entirely).

This Text Exchange Brought Smiles

Making somebody smile when they aren’t expecting it is a pleasant surprise for both parties. It’s uncommon that you will ever cross paths with the wrong person you exchanged texts with, but perhaps one day the stars with align in your favor! When an accident produces smiles and laughs, it’s genuinely such a wonderful feeling.

Source: fostersikes/ Pinterest

We love a good SpongeBob SquarePants reference. The Patrick who received the text made a humorous meme to show his good nature in response to the whole mix-up! Patrick, you’re a star for how you handled the situation.

The Worst Way To Find Out You’re Being Cheated On

Upon first glance, this text probably doesn’t look so bad. Upon further analyzation, you come to realize that there’s a serious problem here. This poor fellow received a breakup text from his girlfriend, only wait get another text a few minutes later saying that she had the wrong number.

Source: knowyourmeme

The guy probably felt relieved when he got the second text, although, there are more glaring questions he should be asking himself. In our humble opinion, it shouldn’t be long before he comes to the realization that his girlfriend hasn’t been faithful to him.

Ouch…This One Hurts

We’d be lying if we said we’ve never been in a position that we wished we weren’t in. The person who received the text had always dreamed of getting a message from a wrong number and obviously gave it much thought to when he actually would.

Source: Reddit

Sadly, this was not the wrong number text this person had been dreaming about for such a long time. Either this person was messing around, or his sister really did pass. We will never know their intentions.

A Lovely Message To Randomly Receive

Despite us not knowing the exact circumstance that led to this very moment, we can confirm that this exchange is wonderfully uplifting and encouraging. Was this message planned? Was it sent on accident? Was this person bored and just wanted to say something nice to a random stranger?

Source: Imgur

We don’t have the right answers to these questions, but the receiver is very happy to have gotten the text. This instance gives us more faith in humanity and that if we performed more random acts of kindness, the world would truly be a much better place to live in.

Are You Coming To Work Today?

Perhaps this person was just randomly on their computer in the bathroom, or they were planning on anticipating a moment like this one. For this lucky guy, it happened at an opportune moment with a wrong text.  

Source: Imgur

The way this person responded to the text was undoubtedly creative and quite genius! It’s a clever way to tell the sender that they will not be showing up for their shift at Bread Co today and that they will need to find another person to hire – one that actually shows up.

A Very Fitting Response

The two men in the original photo thought they had sent the picture of themselves to their friend, but they clearly did not. However, the response that they received surely made them laugh. Amazingly, the two strangers who sent a reply photo recreated their pose in the best way possible. 

Source: Imgur

So, who did it better? Was the old man part of the plot or some stranger who was asked to participate? While we won’t ever know the correct answer, we surely appreciate the creativity of the person who received the text!

Call 911 Before It’s Too Late

This particular text warrants alarm and concern if anything, even if it’s a little funny. The most pressing question here is why Shelby didn’t call 911 first. Even if she were to make a call, the appropriate number would be 911 and not that of her neighbor, Kelli, who clearly wasn’t home.

Emergency services would have been the best people to take the necessary precautions to handle the situation, regardless of who sent the warning message. Luckily, the receiver replied back with some sage advice.

Don’t Mess With This Mom

Based on this text exchange, it appears that the mom who sent the message is quite pushy and passive-aggressive when it comes to her kids. She clearly just wants her way all the time and the person who responded is not appreciating her rude attitude. 

Source: Imgur

We wouldn’t be surprised if this momma bear always does the grunt work in her family, which may warrant some of her snappiness. That being said, hopefully she found somebody to take Val to school and that Amanda’s intervention went well.

Hugs And Kisses

The contents of this text is just filled with mama drama, which an entire series can be based on. We are dying to know what Brittney did to Caitlin that would make her mom send a threatning text message to what was supposed to be Brittney’s mom. Beware of getting banned frmo the cul-de-sac barbeque because it’s a big deal, apparently. 

Source: Imgur

We can only imagine that this is a ban of devastating proportions, as well as a blow to the reputation of Brittney’s mom within the neighborhood. The worst thing about this text, though, is the hugs and kisses sign-off from Helen. Creepy.

Well, That Went Badly

Making a friend from an accidental experience can be joyous and exciting, and can manifest in any type of way when you least expect it. This particular situation could have gone much better, but it turned out to be pretty rough.

Source: shareably

While first seeing this text, it could be considered as a potential start to a new friendship. The receiver was as kind as to offer the stranger to sleep over at her house, plus free biscuits. Who turns down free biscuits? Ruya has some nerve!

Some Nice Banter To Indulge In

The takeaway from this whole conversation is that Jake seems like a fun person to be around. He was prepared with the right answer no matter what unexpected turn the conversation took. Brian, on the other hand, seems to not be consistent with his answers.

Source: Indulgy

Brian wants to know what kinds of pants Jake is wearing, and then he says his girlfriend cheated on him. Literally, Brian divulged information about his entire life story to Jake in only a few texts. Jake adapted to the situation fairly well with his humor and wit.

Fairytale Endings Do Exist

Everybody, at some point in their lives, wants a fairytale romance. In this instance, dreams do come true for these two strangers. The word “princess” was the spark that started it all between the prince who sent the text and the princess who graciously received it. 

Source: awwmemes

The female receiver of the text obviously didn’t mind being this stranger’s princess, even if for a little bit. It wasn’t meant to be in this life, but maybe they will have another chance in another one. After all, true love doesn’t die.
