Freudian Texting

I only text once in a while. Mostly just to find out when my husband will be home*, really.  When I do send texts, they usually don't make much sense.  This is because I assume the predictive texting can totally read my mind and I always forget to check back and make sure that everything says exactly what I want it to say before I send it.

Therefore, Joel is forever getting texts from me that say,

"When will you be good?"


He hasn't yet given me a satisfactory answer.

Poor Joel.

*In case you are a novice texter, like me, maybe you won't realize that "home" and "good" are the same pattern on the keypad.  Now you know.

  5. My old roommate sent me a text once, around 10 p.m. at night, that said, "I'm going to hit the gay."

    Sometimes that auto word stuff can be less than helpful but oh so funny.

  6. My daughter likes to call me "madre". So the other day, I got a text from her that said, "Hey, OBESE, what's for dinner?"

    Yeah, she's grounded now.

  8. Haha.

    I hate texting, because I rarely do it. I used to be on top of technical things, and now I'm old and behind the times.

  9. I text. A lot. The ages of my kids requires it!

    Two other funny ones:

    LIPS and KISS are the same.

    ODOR and MENS

  10. Too funny.

    Yeah, the autoword thing can be really annoying. Though I have learned to love to text. Just not long ones. Brief & to the point.

  11. That is funny!

    I don't text, much, although I did text my husband once from across the pew during Sacrament Meeting (I couldn't get his attention to tell him something I just *had* to say).

  12. Man, I wish I could remember some of the funny ones that slip by without correction. I mix up the home and good ones all the time also but dont' remember getting that particular one you shared :)

  15. My busband just barely started texting and I love when he sends me something because it's always like this. Sometimes I have to end up calling him because I can't figure out what he is trying to say.

  16. That was So funny and so are your followers who have commented. I laughed so hard. I don't text, but my younger brother in law and his wife agreed never to fight in front of the kids so instead they text fight. I was unaware of this until one night at dinner he humphed and stood up and she began typing fiercely on her phone. AH, technology is so much fun!

  17. I text because I hate the phone, but email is my preferred method (and chatting). but I did text Chris tonight from Goodwill (where i was looking for some dish drainer stuff for my classroom) because I saw the weirdest looking table with human legs and a golf club used as the table legs (it better not have been real human legs) and I took a picture with my cell phone and texted Chris that I was out of money and needed yogurt. He texted back all confused what the weird table picture had to do with my grocery request.

  18. Oh dear, that is too funny. Sometimes I really wish I had a cell phone, but most of the time, I don't even miss it. But I am missing out on great things like Freudian texting.

  19. LOL! I rarely ever text, but when I do, my phone has a mini keyboard on it, so no worries!

  20. Now that one made me laugh good and hard! Our hubbys are cut from the same cloth, almost, and I know that Joel is an awesome husband to you. But, it still made me laugh! --Amanda B.

  21. HILARIOUS! I'm not a texter myself, but I come from a long line of Freudian slippers. I remember my mom saying, when I was a kid, "Now, dear, you will always need a good roof over your head, good clothes on your back, and good shoes on your face."

    On my face. Classic.
