Just got a text:
"Mazel tov, I'm engaged!" I'm super happy for Ms anonymous but I don't have u in my contacts and I have no idea who u r... It's a bit weird texting back - "I'm so excited... btw who are u?"
And then I had the time someone texted, "I have a gift for u!" And I'm like okaaay, if I'd only know who u are.
Anyone have stories to share? I'm finding it to be a bit funny.

I get these types of texts often. I simply text back, “who is this?” Once they reply, I send the appropriate Mazel Tov text. No one has had a problem, so far (at least not that I know of)

My husband once got a text saying, "Mazel tov, mazel tov, my wife had twins!!" and had no idea who it was. I assumed who it was based on who I knew was expecting at the time - and I was right - but it was still really funny.

I just had this on Friday where a strange number texted “I’m on my way”. I replied “great I hope you enjoy wherever your going”
Never got a response so I’m assuming the person realized their mistake. LOL

I once replied to a group text, which I only had like one or two numbers in my phone. So I got a text back from one of those numbers asking who I was.

It's very normal to text- don't have your number saved, what's your name.

When texting a person you've never messaged before I think it's mentchlich to write Hi I'm asmileaday I got your number from so and so. And then write whatever it is you want to know.

I got a wedding invitation and had no idea who the people were. I sent the return card back with a "Mazal tov, I have no idea who this is, care to clarify?" and signed my name and number. Didn't get a response.

A neighbor had a baby. I thought she had my number. I texted her that I was in BJ's, can I get her anything? She responded, Yes, 1 box pampers newborn size and a box of forks.
A minute later, she sent a second text, Who is this?

I once got a group email from a doctor of mine that he sent to his family about his son's baseball game that weekend. Guess I have a similar name or email address as a family member of his.

My boss accidentally sent me a text that was meant for his wife. I'm too embarrassed to post it here. (I do have some boundaries.)

We had gone to visit my unmarried son in yeshiva when he got a message " I'm on my way home from the mikvah".
I told him to text back "wrong number".
He was super embarrassed 😭

Why lie? Why not just ask who it is?

Lots of people have waterproof cases, bc they like listening to music on the shower. Or to take pictures in less than ideal weather conditions.

My name is similar to one of my bosses . I get emails meant for her all the time because our work emails are first.last@... so our first 10 letters are the same .

It sounds like ur phone is at a setting that when you are in a group message and you reply... It replies to everyone in an individual text as opposed to staying in that group text.

If you want to make it that it just stays in the group... Go to your messages, click on the three dots in the corner, then settings, then advanced, then group messaging and switch to the option that says something like "send an mms reply to all recipients (group message)."

Thank you! I've been meaning to look up how to do that but keep forgetting to. Just switched it on my phone. Having it sent to individuals was super annoying.

Well.. This was a few phones ago. And if that is the default that is stupid bc that's not how. Group messages work. But I'm using message+ and I couldn't find any setting like that

Besides, when I have a group it shows it all the group message
