I think you sent this to the wrong person

March 11, 2012

Have you ever received a text message that wasn’t meant for you?

Yesterday I received a text that wasn’t meant for me but was about me. Once I had read it I felt so upset by it, this soon passed and the anger kicked in. How dare they say what they said? Why if you are if are being horrible about someone wouldn’t you check that you are sending it to the right person? Maybe it was a freudian slip, seeing my name in the message and their subconscience sending it to me.

The thing I am upset/angry about is that this isn’t the first message I have had saying horrible things about me from this person. Last time I confronted them and they carefully back tracked and managed to cover it up so that I felt as though I was reading too much into the message.

I did think about sending a message back saying:

‘I think you sent this to the wrong person’

However, I thought better of it. Why should I point out their mistake? I sure in time when the other person does not reply that they will realise that…

‘Oh holy crap! I sent it to the wrong person!’

It crossed my mind to send it to the right person as I know to whom the text was intended and this also makes me upset, because if this is the kind of message she received from this person I do not want to think about what the reply might have been.

I’m not naive enough to think that people who are nice to your face don’t then say horrible things behind your back but what you don’t know can’t hurt you, right?

What would you have done in my situation?
Would you have replied or forwarded the message?
