10 Disappointing Moments in Text Messaging

Scammers, weird alerts, condo offers-make it stop!

 

(SPOT.ph) Picture this: you’re on the train, waiting for an important text. It could be the reply from the person you’re seeing, a job offer, the answer to the ultimate question, or an assurance that the love of your life is home safe. Now, your phone is deep inside your bag-for security reasons. But if it vibrates, you will feel it...and it does. So you start digging.

 

Maybe you get a cut because your hand scratches against something or maybe the person next to you starts glaring because your elbow is invading his or her personal space. Finally, finally, you fish it out. What a lovely message from 2363!

 

Here are 10 more disappointing moments in text messaging.

 

Disclaimer: People who are permanently attached to their phones might not have related to the story above.

 

 

1. Scam

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: "I’m good, thanks."

Worse than this, those texts that claim that your loved one is in the hospital. It’s weird, especially if you’re out on a Sunday date with your mom. Does this mean that the woman you’re having lunch with isn’t your mother?

 

 

2. Your subscription has expired

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: The promo code. Unli-this, unli-that, stat!

Unfortunately, you might receive the other disappointing text, which reads, "Sorry, we cannot process your request at this time. Please try again later. Thank you."

 

 

3. Text from the ex

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: "STOP ALERT"

Save the number. Then block it.

 

 

4. Random raffle text

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: "Congratulations! Survey says, you’re the worst person ever. Claim your prize way down south of Heaven!"

Someone, we don’t know who, should prank this person. Call ’em and start weeping and claim that they’re the long lost offspring of Ed Pascua.

 

 

5. K

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: "L M N O P"

People should really stop doing this.

 

 

6. Late text

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: "Sorry, I changed lives. Who is this?"

Possibly the worst kind of person to make plans with...so, lifehack, stop making plans with them. Problem solved. You’re welcome.

 

 

7. Roaming number

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: It’s not worth it, man.

We wonder: Are these people real?

 

 

8. Condo

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: "HUHUHU. CANNOT AFFORD."

This one hurts a lot. You get disappointed because you got a dud text and it’s a gentle reminder of things in life you can’t afford...yet. Don’t worry. You’ll get there.

 

 

9. Hot Alert

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: Whoa, dude. You don’t reply to this.

Say it with us, "How many ’stop alerts’ have I sent? How many more do I need to send?" Cue river of tears.

 

 

10. Wrong text

If you have enough prepaid credits, reply with: "I am so sorry. You did not get the girl."
