Sex & the Single Woman: Ditzy Dialing
Oops! I accidentally texted my ex. It was a mistake, I swear! I thought I had deleted the guy’s number. I thought wrong.
Here’s the story: I was meeting my old roommate at his work to pick up my deposit money. I got off the Tube and sent STEVE a text along the lines of “I’m on Tottenham Court Road, where’s your office?”
A minute later I get a text from STUART, the ex. The one I told I didn’t want to talk to him for a very, very long time a few months back. His message: “Are you sure you meant to send this to me?”
Kicking myself for my sloppiness, I texted back that I’d meant to text my friend, then braced myself for an awkward response. I didn’t hear anything back. Which is a little bit more awkward, I think.
The lesson: Clear out my phone! And look twice before I hit send!
