Unfortunately, drunk texting has very much become part of "the culture" in 2017. Hell, it's been part of the culture since text messaging became a thing. The reason it's so dangerous now, is because unlike back in the day, everything can be screen-grabbed and shared with the internet at large. Sure, it's a crappy thing for the recipient to do, but it's not exactly uncommon. You have to realize that every time you hit send, 100+ people can be reading that bad boy in a matter of minutes.
Naturally, you understand this notion when you're sober. Drunk? Well, that's a different story. Inhibitions are lowered, justifications are made, and all of a sudden you start typing away like a journalist at The New York Times with an ax to grind. That's why when we came across this question posed by Reddit user, BirthByCow, we thought it was time for a little learning session. Guys, for the love of all things holy, don't make the same mistakes these people did. Spare yourself the embarrassment (and possibly jail time).
"What was the worst drunk text you've ever sent?"
Some of these are so cringeworthy, it might actually be useful to have a drink in hand to temper the string of second-hand shame. Yes, we realize that's counterproductive to the point of the piece, but, hey! There's just too many good beers this time of year to pass up.
"My dad's totally gonna know I'm drunk and high" sent text to my dad... He responded, 'I do now, you dumb ass.'"
Mass Booty Call
"I somehow managed to mass text everybody on my contacts list "Where are you?", at 2:30am. I woke up to a shit load of texts, and tried to figure out how it was even possible I did it, then I accidentally resent it again to everybody."
Oh, Wow, Nope, Not OK
"Once I asked a girl if she would eat my cum. After she turned down the offer, I said 'Fine, more for me.'"
Better Than Mom's Cooking
"I was high, but i sent a picture of the fried chicken i was about to eat to my mom saying 'Look at this delicious f*cker right here, lol no chicken for u.'"
"Ate 3 boxes of peeps on Easter and took the nastiest sh*t. Tried texting a pic to my group of guy friends but instead sent it to the girl I had been dating for 3 weeks. 2 years later she still brings it up."
She Watered You?
"I texted a girl I liked, 'I need help. Like now.' She called me in a panic, asking me where I was and what she needed to do and my drunk ass replied, 'My boots won't come off. How do you take off shoes?' She cussed at me a little bit, then told me to describe my shoes. After about twenty minutes she showed up at my house right as I started feeling sick, and she took my boots off and watered me. It was nice."
Oh, The Horror!
"Quite a long text with fairly graphic detail, describing just how much I had enjoyed the BJ I had received from her earlier. Was intended for my GF at the time. Sent it to my mum. I switched the phone off in horror when I realized what I had done. Hoping it would somehow stop it. This was in the early 00's when sms delivery reports were all the rage. When I plucked up enough courage and switched the phone on. I received the text 'Delivered Mum Mob'. Luckily she never mentioned it."
"Not drunk, but I dropped 3 tabs of acid and texted everyone in my phone that I was about to die and I loved them all. A very hard next day trying to explain to my aunts and uncles why I texted them."
Wonder What He Was Trying To Say
"I sent my then girlfriend a text I didn't spellcheck. Turns out it read 'I want to kick your puppy till you scream.'"
