SMS Blunder

Have you ever sent an sms to the wrong recipient? Well, it just happened to me today. I wanted to send a belated birthday wish to my SIL. After sending the message, I got an sms from CB which read “Y send to me? Bodoh.” Aiyo... I’m such a ‘big head prawn’. I had to ask him to forward the message back to me coz I’ve deleted it from my phone. Then I resent it to SIL. Sigh... just to get one message across, 5 sms-es were required. How effective. :-|

How about on the receiving end? Have you ever received an sms which was not meant for you? I recently got an sms from an unknown sender with the message in Chinese, “I am going to Dragon-i to eat.” In my mind I thought, oh how nice for you, but I don’t know who you are! I wondered how that person could’ve made the mistake as I don’t recognise the number. So it’s not likely that I’m in the phone contact list. And rarely these days we’d key in the phone number when we make calls or send sms-es. Till today, it remains a mystery.

once i got a threatening sms! it went something like.. "i malas layan you already. next time i report you to the police. kita pergi balai". Gawd! out of nowhere, okay. it was so irritatingly worrying that i decided to keep it in my inbox.... just in case. dunno why though.
