Sorry man, she was talking about you. That, or she was so embarrassed about sending you a text that was meant for someone else that she decided to quit her job, change her name, and move to a different country. Apparently, this guy doesn’t create the best date, but if the gal in question was having such a hard time getting excited, cancel or turn down the second date – don’t say yes and then stand him up. That’s the coward’s way.
If you’re the one who got this message, time to start looking into ways to be more charming. It can be done!
This Could Have Been Avoided
Well, make sure you don't repeat that mistake when you get a divorce lawyer because we're assuming that's where this is heading. But let's dig in a little bit. If you already knew your wife was being unfaithful, why would you hire a private investigator at that point? Is it to make sure there isn't anything else she's hiding from you? Seems like the best reason we're going to come up with.
We kind of hope the wife responded with something like “Yeah, I know that's me.” On the other hand, she was probably on the lookout for people trailing her after getting the message. Not great.
Those Rates Aren't Bad
A landscaper with a sense of humor – you love to see it. He was just expecting to have to trim the hedges when he got that text, but likely he'd been around the block long enough to know an accidental text when he saw one. A little bit of good humor followed, and all was well.
The homeowner should probably give the landscaper a bigger tip than normal, just in case there are any hard feelings, but forty dollars still seems a little steep. Unless that was also hushed money, then it's worth every penny.
Uh, Problem Solved?
That's one way to force the issue. Though in the long run, this was probably a better way to cut things off quickly than just letting the problems linger. And at least the girlfriend took it in stride – they stepped outside, they broke up, and that was that. We do like to imagine how he explained the event to his friends, though.
“I meant to text you but texted her instead about how I thought she was going to break up with me, and then she broke up with me.” There are lots of additional questions to ask. Hopefully, there is also some fun to get rid of the sting.
The Kind of Guy We All Want as a Boss
First off, it's not like we can blame the guy – chocolate and snuggles are great for everybody. Who doesn't like that combo? People who are allergic to chocolate, we guess. Moving on. The boss was probably very confused about this kind of message from one of his workers but decided it was best not to mention it.
The employee fessed up, and the boss played dumb. That's one really smart way to avoid putting more embarrassment on someone who works for you. We guess it's possible the boss actually didn't see the message but come on. The phone vibrates when you get it. We know you see it eventually.
