Yeah, this seems pretty bad, but it looks as if the danger has passed on this one. The story even describes the guy in question as an ex. Once those two letters are added in front of the title, a person becomes fair game.
If they were close with a friend of yours, you might want to avoid forming anything romantic with them. But, in general, once the relationship is over, it’s hard to see the danger. Maybe this text was sent during the relationship? Maybe that’s why he’s an ex now.
Tell Me What “Regrets” Refers to
There are lots and lots of dumb tattoos out there. A quick Google search will tell you that there are probably millions of them, ripe for the teasing. From misspelled words to terrible designs to plainly bad ideas, like getting your first girlfriend's name tattooed on you, the examples are endless.
Of course, mocking these poor decisions is a duty and a right, but it's still best not to let the inked person know. It could end up going poorly. This person covered the mistake like a champ, though, even if he or she did end up getting into a too-long convo about the ink.
Well, Good News. You Don't Have to Eat It Anymore
We know that not everybody has the best cooking skills, or enjoys the same kind of food as you, but would you really hate the family if their food is gross? There are lots of other things in life. Do they tell funny jokes or interesting stories? Do they read foreign literature? Do they explore interesting caves and bring back cool rocks?
We all have to eat, but that's not the only thing. You don't have to eat anymore since you're probably not dating him anymore. Calling a guy's whole family gross might do that.
That Sped up the Conversation
Ah, young love. It almost never amounts to anything, but at least you get to collect lots of really embarrassing memories while you're at it. Sure, every once in a while you hear about a pair of childhood sweethearts that go the distance all the way until the nursing home, but they're rare and becoming rarer.
These days, there are too many emotions flying around for kids to have a chance, and with the ability to send instant messages to anyone they want, those young relationships are bound to crumble until they learn how to control themselves. That's not going to happen until they're in college at least, and we know how that normally goes.
Uh, Happy Grandmother Day?
Look, she was going to find out anyway, you just ripped the band-aid off. Except that now both your sister (almost certainly) and your mom (maybe) are both going to be a little mad at you because of a simple miss-sent text. Better start buying baby shower gifts to make up for it.
Get a little onesie that has a dinosaur on it. That's always a hit. On the other hand, you could try and say that the text was meant for a random friend that you make up on the spot, and certainly not for your sister. There. Problem solved until Mom contacts the sister.
