Getting a text that was meant for someone else is funny enough, but these people took it to a new level of hilarity with their responses.

All it takes is a slip of the sender's hand while typing a friend's number, a drunk bar hopper giving accidental digits to a random person or somebody is just messing around and text strangers for fun. It's you who ends up with the wrong number messages and/or pictures on your phone that you weren't exactly intended to see. Even worse, sometimes an especially embarrassing text aimed at your significant other finds its way to a different contact's inbox - all because you selected Brandy instead of Brad by mistake.

The recipients of the messages in our list didn't get scared of the stranger danger, and instead of just typing back 'sorry wrong number,' they have gone along with the funny wrong number texts received.

Regardless of how they got the texts, these wrongful recipients came up with brilliant responses to these wrong number texts, and you can check them all out below.

Yes, the first message had zero compassion, and deserved what it got.

Yeah, you don't text someone about the passing of a family member or a friend. Also, I especially hate it when the moment someone dies, their family doesn't wait to tell people via phone first, they just put it straight on Facebook! I've found out about a few passings on Facebook. It's not really fair

Fiona Messenger

Sometimes, there's too many to tell, especially if they did have loads of friends. I have actually learned of a few passings via Facebook, most of them handled properly. Close family and friends should always be informed over the phone. Telling them via FB is better than not telling them at all. I've had the latter happen as well, where the death "came out" on FB but not straight from the those closest to them. That was worse.

Not getting the number right is rude as fuck. What if it was sent to someone with an alive dad? What if it was sent to someone with a fatally ill dad? What if it was sent to someone with just a slightly ill dad that that told their dad the other day it's nothing, just a simple cold?
