Have you ever received a phone call or text from a random number? Most of us have, and they’re usually harmless texts that end with the other person apologizing politely before leaving our lives forever. But sometimes, just sometimes, responding to a wrong number text can lead to laugh-out-loud results. The next time you receive a text message from a complete stranger, try and get the most fun out of it. You might even make a new friend. That’s what these people did, and they shared their amusing exchanges online. Take a look at some of the funniest wrong number text messages that people had to share online.
The boys and the girls
Serving in the military is a great honor, but it can be difficult at times. By that, we mean being an active member who can be shipped off to some random part of the planet any day of the week, not the guys who enjoy lattes while coming up with strategies for hitting on women.
So, when you receive a random message from a group of girls, you can bet that soldiers are more than willing to respond. These women sent a group pic to the wrong people, but in response, they got an awesome recreation of their picture but with all military guys. That’s definitely worth a laugh or two.
Living in denial
It appears that someone sent a message to the wrong number but won’t accept it. This Kaylee that they’re reaching out to seems not to want anything to do with this texting stranger, and we can totally see why. It’s like they don’t even care that they texted the wrong person!
The OP did their best to inform the random texter of the problem, but for some reason, they continued to offer a shoulder to lean on. Thanks, we guess? Out of all the random wrong number texters out there, this person appears to be the most caring, but they’re also slightly creepy.
Want a shoulder to lean on?
This is another one of those she-gave-me-the-wrong-number scenarios. We’ve all been on one end of this situation at least once before. Poor, poor Pedro thought he was hot stuff when he received a girl’s number at a club one night. Unfortunately for him, she didn’t save his number, so she had to ask who it was.
But that’s not where the sad news ends. The person who responded was not the girl Pedro was looking for. It took Pedro three hours from sending his first text to his final text before the sad realization hit him. At least the other guy was nice enough not to string Pedro along, and he even offered his condolences.
No funny business, please
When shopping on Craigslist, you’ll get to encounter all kinds of people. A small group of them are normal folks like me and you, but the vast majority are weirdos who are looking for questionable relationships with their potential buyers. At least, that’s how we think Craigslist works. It’s a dating app, right?
Apparently, we’re wrong. This person was shopping around for a used vehicle and had set up an appointment to meet with a seller at 6 PM the following day. Not long after, he received a pretty flirty message from the seller. How do you accidentally send a message like that to a person you don’t even know?
Apparently, sharing bathroom pics is a thing now. We thought whatever goes down in the bathroom stays in the bathroom, but nope. People send shirtless bathroom pics to others for one reason or another. For this guy, it looks like he was trying to seduce someone. It didn’t end up the way he had hoped.
We can see how sending an unsolicited shirtless photo to someone has a potential to end badly. Thankfully, this guy had the decency to send his own semi-shirtless picture back with an obligated “Wrong number” text. And that’s how this exchange ended—with a simple “my bad” at the end. It’s nice seeing people react tamely to misunderstanding.
The Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine
Sending text messages to the wrong number can be hilarious, sure, but it can also be creepy. This person was trying to hook up using the strangest tactic possible. He sent a text message to a random person, not knowing whether the person on the other end was a man or a woman.
Oddly enough, the recipient was neither. It was actually a grill, and one of the most special kinds of grills at that. What’s strange is that the random texter didn’t catch on, not even when the OP revealed himself as a George Foreman grill. We thought everyone knew who George Foreman was!
