    Have you ever written an email..or sent a text to someone other than the intended person... to your horror or embarrassment?


    ...or have you ever written something on a forum or Social media and lived to regret it?

    It's really hard not to have someone misunderstand you when you are typing words instead of talking face to face so I for one can say that what I have said sometimes has been taken the wrong way and often trying to make someone understand when you are still typing the words just makes things worse. I've had a few incidents like this even here on this Forum.

    I can also say that once in a while someone has made me so angry with what they have said that I have just "let them have a piece of my mind" right back at them! If I know I blew it and owe someone an apology I will sincerely give them one. That way I may regret what I said in anger but know that I did everything I could to let the other person know I am sorry for hurting them, etc. If I felt I owed someone an apology and didn't give it...that is when I would have regrets.

    Yes, but I have also regretted instances of not writing something sooner and other instances I regretted... for writing nothing.

    Maybe not totally regretted something but wished I hadn't written something.

    With my increasingly unreliable memory, I have double-sent items of interest, clippings, things like that occasionally, as I keep no record of such sends. If I did, I'd forget where I put the records!

    I can't recall regretting something said in a message, face to face I have and then apologised
    You can be irritable for some reason, maybe health issues - and you react
    You can't regret that fact, how can you be wrong for feeling hurt on something written or something said
    you can only say sorry for 'over reacting' if, you did in fact over react or just state you didn't like what was said
    Getting meself confused now :p :rolleyes:

    I really wasn't intending for this to be a post about really serious issues, more texting or emailing to the wrong person by mistake, and if it caused embarrassment or trouble..


    I remember my husband was giving me a hard time, and I was texting back and forth to my daughter about it, and at one point I called him a ****** and I sent it to him by mistake.... and then the fight was really on... LOL....

    Oh no problem Patsy....and I totally understand what you're saying in your post, it happens to the best of us... if we're poorly and irritable or someone else is and they take it out on us. It happened to me just the other day on another forum, I said something jokingly , and someone jumped straight down my throat because they'd taken what I'd written the wrong way. I was stunned and explained my point and they kindly sent me an apology by PM.. saying that they'd had a bad day and had taken it out on me unfairly...

    The premise for my postings is 'REGRET' and now I regret posting them so the circle is completed ...
    You are right ... I am slightly off thread ... as in eccentric ...
