When Good Texts Go Bad

Oops. Yes, that is how I would like to start this little post. My poor children have seen and heard too much.
Where to start, where to start?
DJ is now the proud owner of a driver license. And we didn't have to bribe anyone!(In Illinois it's possible to pay for a license just so you know! It doesn't always work out for those involved but it is common here. ;p) He passed with flying colors.
I don't pray in public very often but when the man took him out to test him, I have to admit I prayed. I wasn't praying that DJ would pass, I prayed that they would live. DJ scares me and I don't care if the state of Illinois thinks that he is good enough to be on his own in a vehicle, he will get small doses of freedom. Trust me, it is best for the public that I do this.
I drove us home(again I still don't trust the boy to drive me) but before we left the parking lot, I sent a mass text to everyone that he had his drivers license.
Whenever I drive, I always have the passenger read my texts to me and respond. Feel free to groan and say, oh shit. My texts are normally at a PG rating so I never worry about what my friends say or who reads them.
First to respond via text was Den. He had no idea that DJ would be reading OUT-LOUD what he sent. Den's exact text was, "I don't fucking believe it! It's got to be some sort of joke the DMV is playing on us. No one in their right mind would ever give him a license to drive a car."
Next was from Den's best friend, Steve. He is also the hubs of my BFF. He said, "Tell him congrats................Holy Mother of God what have you let him do..............:"
Hmmmmm, maybe I shouldn't let people read my text messages. 
I told Anna what happened and she laughed. Then she told me an even worse story about reading someone else's text messages to them. Her roommate was helping her mother get ready for a party they were hosting. While her mom was getting ready, the mom asked her daughter to read her text messages to her. The mother's BFF texted and said that she was going to be late to the party because she was "getting a quicky."
Would you let me read your texts,
Sonya Ann

OMG! really laughed! Worst thing (not with texts but with emails) is pressing "Reply All" to a group email when making a comment about one of the group members to another group member. When I did that I thanked my lucky stars that I had put it fairly mildly - compared with what I REALLY thought about her!

We have the texting option turned off on our phone plan. I tell people it's because of the expense, but the truth is, I'm afraid someone like you will get hold of my number and wreak havoc on my life.

Too funny!
Yes, you could read my texts. They are totally boring and could cure your insomnia.

Sure you can read mine! The only one who texts me are my sons and it's usually things like, 'what's for dinner' or 'are you making dinner' or 'what time is dinner'......

Too funny.....

Sonya Ann said...

Jenny Woolf-I'm all worried that I will press reply all! So glad that you edited yourself! Bet you felt like climbing into a hole!

Sonya Ann said...

Annie-Have I got some phone porn I could send you!!! What's your number again?

Sonya Ann said...

Mark-If you want to spice up your life, give me your number!!!

Sonya Ann said...

Mamma has spoken-I seem to be the only person with "spicy" text messages!

Sonya Ann said...

sluggy-I'm just mean to my kids! It builds character!

ChiTown Girl said...

Oh my God! I kinda feel bad for DJ that I'm laughing my ass off at this!!! When my son finally got his license, the texts I got back were pretty similar, especially from his father!

Thank God Den didn't say "Let's celebrate with a quickie!" hahaha!

Sonya Ann said...

ChiTown Girl-We are terrible to the boy. LOL I doubt Den would suggest that!

McVal said...

LOL!!!
One time Hubs and I were having a BIG discussion (fight) with my son. He sat sitting on the stairs with his cell phone down by his side texting while we argued.

A second later after our "discussion" was over, hubs gets a text... from our son... that said, "My dad is a d*ck". And not even with proper punctuation! "SON!!! Come back down here! Did you MEAN to send me that text just now??"

Um nope.... He meant it for a friend. So if you're going to give or receive bad texts, make sure you've got it going to the correct attendee! And that it's PG rated...

Sonya Ann said...

McVal-That child is lucky that he lived! It is amazing how we can manage to keep our calm sometimes. One time DJ flipped me off as I was walking away because I yelled at him. The problem was there was a mirror in front of me and I saw him do it. He was grounded for quite some time for that one!

I am lame. I rarely text.

Samantha got her license years ago and her driving still scares me.

Sonya Ann said...

Frances-I'm just glad that I don't have to ride with DJ anymore.
